Regarding automated telephone banking systems, customers can currently inquire (get account balance and info) by phone with their account number and last four digits of their SSN. If they want to transfer funds between their accounts, they must complete an application. My bank wants to give automatic access to transfers too. I'm concerned about Reg E issuing access device rules. Is calling the number and following the steps, "requesting" the access? We have new operations personnel who say all banks do this automatically. Other banks don't have customers fill out a form or call and talk to someone, it is all done through the automated phone system. Does this comply?
