A: Why on earth do you think that your bank--that had nothing to do with your decision to get scammed--should have to indemnify you for your loss? Can you imagine what would happen if EVERYONE who gets scammed by some thief over the Internet could just asak their bank for the money? Where would the bank get all that money? From the Internet?
