A sickly Queens widow is rejoicing after the Daily News helped her recover money scammed from her checking account.Retired clerical worker Margaret Gernon’s nightmare began two weeks ago, when she noticed $830.95 had been withdrawn from her WaMu account at locations in Montreal a day earlier. She alerted the bank, which initially blamed her – even though she has never been to Canada. “I was told the investigation determined that somebody used my pin number and got it right the first time, so it must have been me,” Gernon said. Gernon called The News, which contacted WaMu. A day later, she had her money back and an apology. “I’m so grateful to the Daily News for what you did,” Gernon said. “I’m so relieved I got my money.” Join the Conversation:
