They lost $700k... gotta blame someone. Probably a self defence mechanism to feel less shitty about ir.

The blame is probably the grief of cancer and his wife passing away...i guess you can blame the human heart. Sometimes it really does delude people into doing crazy things. Of course this example is an extreme one. An outlier.
In this case... He lost his fortune to “sophia”.
But wow... rcmp says $25 million lost in 2017 to romance scams. Thats only the reported ones.

As for the son that was expecting a big payday, it's too bad you didn't care for your old man before he went.

Bank did ask questions but the guy lied:
Sounds to me like due diligence was done.It says Robert Hogg "told a number of branch representatives that he had purchased land in Malaysia and was building a house," which was why he needed to wire money.
