I have a joint checking account with another person. They transferred all the money out of the account and into their own private account without my permission. They then closed the account. Can they do that?
Either person on the joint account generally has the right to move funds or close the account. Check your account agreement to see if this is the case for your account. State law may also provide you some protection in this situation.
