    To me, the first sentence suggests that it was done with Jessica´s knowledge, while the second implies that it was done surreptitiously. I think that your question cannot be answered, as we are talking about two different situations.
    You should omit out in both sentences.

    For once I have to disagree with riquecohen. I think that both are possible without necessarily implying a surreptitious withdrawal. I also feel that out is acceptable.

    So the second example implies that someone hacked into her account or withdrew money from it without her knowing it.?

    That´s how I see it. Fivejedjon disagrees, so clearly this is an issue of individual interpretation. I think both points of view are valid. Of course, the intent could be clarified if the examples were presented in a broader context.
