He has to go into a bank branch tomorrow morning.

The person on the phone said that it's possible the computer has I forget what it's called but it's a virus that remembers your keystrokes and that may be how they got the account information in the first place and they recommended getting the computer scanned so he is going to have to do that as well. No money stolen from him at least. Only cost appears to be the computer scanning cost.
It's called a key logger. Do you have wireless internet at your house?
