Be happy thats the worst you have to do. I'm sure you'd be really burned if they were able to actually take money out

They are not ripping the people out of their hard earned money. They are taking the money away from the bank which will cover the consumer's loss.

If someone gets into your account and steals X amount of money, the bank will reimburse you X amount of money. The bank takes the loss, not the end user. It becomes a pain in the arse for the end user because he/she has to unlock the account or whatever is needed, but the end user usually doesn't loose a dime; just time.

That's my understanding.
