Unless when you opened the account and requested that both signatures are required to make a withdrawal, then it is possible for one party to make withdrawals from a joint account without a signature from the other or indeed without the other party knowing.
Please let me know if you require any further info.
What can I do now? Is there any thing I can do to get my half of the money back?
Could you give me a little bit of the background as to what has actually happened please?
