Glitch Doubles State Farm Premiums

From The Baltimore Sun
State Farm said Thursday that a glitch in its automated billing process resulted in 80,000 customers, including about 4,300 in Maryland, being charged twice as much as usual this month.

The problem affected customers in a dozen states and the District of Columbia who have monthly premiums automatically debited from their bank account,

State Farm has returned the overpayments to customers' accounts. Nevertheless, it shows the downsides of allowing auto debits to your bank account.
