I guess this is one painful way to learn why banks and other financial
institutions have very bureaucratic but very well established techniques
for handling money and don't work with systems that were tosses together

Almost everything that seems to have happened is an example of either
inexperience with proper bookkeeping or a complete disregard for
established techniques in banking software.
