Chase Bank: #$%^&!!!!

A project log for ESP32 WiPhone

The WiPhone project is an open source mobile IP phone. WiPhone is intended to be hackable, modular, cheap, and open, while remaining usable.

Stuck in China due to Chase Bank simultaneously fucking the project in the ass and being a giant bag of limp, helpless dicks.

Their fraud detection algorithm locked our account and now the WiPhone project can't move forward until Chase unlocks it again. Which apparently requires buying a plane ticket and fly half way around the world. Which requires money that's currently locked in the account. And time that could be more productively spent doing practically anything else.


And a twitter thread with Chase here. Feel free to join in and let them know what  a bunch of helpless incompetents they are:

😢 That's awful, when an algorithm makes a mistake, and nobody will correct it.

Yeah, public shaming seems to be the only option left at this point... I don't like tattling, but hoping if they get enough bad press and people sharing it they'll finally take some responsibility.
