Announcing The 'Golden Arse' Awards!

The 'Golden Arse'
Fat Arse has left a new comment on your post, "Voted the "Golden Arsenism Award" for April!"

Nice award. Wish I had thought of it. Are you sending a copy of the 'golden arse' to the winners?
Dear Mr. Fat Arse:
Thank you for writing. Based on the original New York Post story that would be the Chase Bank employee in its Queen's Kew Gardens Branch - that is, if they're still there. One would have thought since the account was in the wife's name she should have been contacted. It's unlikely Chase will provide the specific information given the case is being litigated.
However, why don't readers' from both sites contact us with their nominees so we can make it a joint award? Surely Arsenisms must have lots of outstanding candidates - CyberSmokeBlog certainly does!

P.S. Fat Arse is Blogmaster of the delightful, thoroughly engaging site Arsenisms ( who bills himself as, "One lone 'Fat Arse' committed to free speech" and "Just another Arse commenting on political farce!" He has a ....-eating hamster "Tory" named after one of Canada's major political parties. Highly recommended!
'Wife $Savings' Suit - Gal Hies Bank for Telling Hubby of 800G Stash

William J. Gorta/April 27, 2009

Some wives guard secrets from their husbands so closely, they might as well be in a bank vault.

So what's a gal to do when a bank spills one of her deepest secrets?

A Long Island dentist is suing Chase bank to recover the more than $150,000 that she says she had to share with her hubby after a bank employee let it slip that she had a huge account balance he didn't know about.

Nazita Aminpour, 43, and her husband, David Shamash, 47, have a joint account at a Chase branch in Kew Gardens, Queens, along with a custodial one for their three children. But Aminpour also had a secret stash of $800,000 at the branch in her name only, according to a suit filed last week in Queens Supreme Court.

A bank employee trying to be helpful spilled the beans to Shamash by cold-calling him and telling him he should take his small fortune out of the low-interest account and make other investments with Chase, the suit alleges.

Shamash said he knew nothing about the money.

"Shamash then began harassing [Aminpour], asking for money from the funds that he can invest in the stock market and to cover a margin call he had on his stock account," the wife's suit says.

Shamash began "alienating" Aminpour, so she forked over $155,000 "to save her marriage and restore order in the marital home," the suit says.

She says the bank placed her in a "situation of duress."

She also claims in the suit that the bank violated federal privacy laws that "prohibit the disclosure of non-public, personal information."

Aminpour wants Chase to cover her loss and shell out for her lawyers' fees.

A recent bank statement submitted with the court papers shows her with a balance of more than $1 million -- 25 percent higher than in March last year, when her husband had his hand out.

Messages left at the Great Neck couple's home and with their lawyer were not returned.

Chase declined to comment because the matter is under litigation.
