A grieving widow is taking on the Australian banking industry after being lumped with thousands of dollars of fees and interest from her late husband’s estate.
“Grieving families have enough to deal with without greedy banks exploiting them when they are at their most vulnerable,” Kate Vaughan said last week.
Kate’s husband, Australian skydiver Michael Vaughan died in March 2015 after suffering a mid-air collision.
He was just 45 years old at the time.
Following Michael's death, Kate contacted the major bank - which she refused to name - and chased the status of her husband's finances. She informed them that she was in the process of being granted a probate, which would allow her to take control of the accounts.
