"Lastschriftverfahren", I know. Too few people know that the bank transfers the money back to you if you only raise a finger. It's a method that is based on trust: the bank transfers money from your account to someone who claims you allowed that without asking questions. If you protest, they transfer it back, and again without questioning if the other party might be entitled to the money.

Which is exactly what I did. Only problem was that I had left enough money in my account to cover my last electricity and phone bills. The landlord took an additional month's rent, despite the fact that there was not enough money in the account for this. They then refused to pay the other bills, as my balance was negative....

Oh shit. I hope you raised hell and the landlord's standing with the bank was not too good.
