Today, I got a letter from my college saying that if my tuition was not paid in the next 24 hours, I will be terminated from classes. Turns out account services has been depositing my tuition money in another student’s account whose social security number was one digit different from mine. FML

my ssn was correct, but some dumbass work-study in account services was handling payments apparently and somehow put the mailed checks from my parents into someone else's account. my parents came in person to pay by check after i got another letter saying i was to move out of my dorm since the tuition still hasn't been paid. all they could say was, "oh, we're sorry, but here's your money back," after i was humiliated by eviction from my dorm room and already suspended from classes.
It looks like something could be fixed then, I'd think. I know they'd want YOU to check and make sure the SS was the same but if some stoned work-study typed it in wrong and you EXPECTED to see your SS when you checked the info . . . it's easy to see that's why you didn't catch the mistake. Of course, the other student ALSO should have checked to see why their account was being paid off so fast, too. Me? I think that student owes the money back or else, the univeristy immediately needs to reactivate your account (read, pay it) and go after THAT other student. Pronto. And, they need to find out exactly who typed in that number wrong and send them to the unemployment line or suspend them from school if they're a student.
Speak your mind, but please try and be respectful.
