Obviously, there are, since she's one of them.  Yes, unfortunately, there are quite a few naive people in the world that think that.

I wouldnt say "stupid". I would just say they werent as "well informed" as they should have been on how to keep a checkbook.

thats not the first time ive heard of someone doing that.

I didn't even read the post. My answer is: Yes, people are really that stupid. And when you think they can't get any dumber, they turn around and surprise you.
