i had $500 dollars in my savings account from there's a $100 dollar minimum that i had to put in the savings account just to open it, and that came out of my money as well. i had to link it with my dad's bank account because I'm a minor and he has full access to it. today, I got a letter from the bank with all of the recent transactions and $400 dollars was taken out of my account. he didn't even ask to borrow it, he just took it out without telling me and he's had so many opportunities to tell me. what makes this even worse is that my birthday's on Sunday and i had plans on going to six flags with a few friends and now i have no money to do so, now i know my 16th birthday is going to be ***.

Best Answer:

Equality 7-2521: He did not do anything illegal, but certainly unethical. Even though he has full access to the account, he certainly knows it was your money and decency would require that he ask you first. Even if it were an emergency expense, even for your benefit, he should have asked.

But he didn't. So now all you can do is ask him what happened and when does he think the money will be put back into your account. I can't think of anything else you can do other than close the account, use a little of the remaining money to buy yourself a small fireproof lockbox at an office supply store, and keep your cash there where no one can get to it. Once you are 18 and can have your own account, you can re-deposit it into a new account that only you have access to.

Other answer:

Equality 7-2521:
Looks like they would have had to notify you first. But if this honestly happened, I think I'd find a new home for my money. I'd open another account with an adult I could trust.
Or I would find a really excellent hiding place.
And then I'd ask him for my money back.

Tell your dad you want to use your money to go and see what he says. Maybe he used it to buy you something great and will pay it back when he gets paid next.
