KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA – Listen up boys and ghouls. This next story is not only creepy, but it’s downright criminal.

Remember Malaysian Airlines Flight 370, the one that literally flew off the face of the earth back in March and has not been heard from since?

Well, it disappeared with all 239 passengers and crew, but something else has disappeared, and that’s what this story is all about.

Malaysian police nabbed a bank officer and her husband, and are looking for a third person they say stole about $35,000 from the bank accounts of some of the missing passengers.

Here’s how cops say it happened.

The bad bankers took money from the accounts of three missing passengers and put it into the account of a fourth passenger.

After they moved about 10 grand or so to the account of the third suspect, they withdrew the rest by taking out money every day from an ATM.

HASBC Bank Malaysia  will only say that they referred the matter to the police.

It’s one thing to rob the dead when they’re dead, but for a bank to rip them off while they’re still missing is just bad on all “accounts”.
