If this ever happens to you, make sure you say something!
36-year-old Robert Williams and his wife Tiffany from Montoursville, Pennsylvania came across A TON of unexpected money back on May 31st when a teller accidentally deposited $120,000 into their bank account. Their balance before that? $1,121.
Robert and Tiffany decided the right move wasn’t to contact the bank. They decided to go on a shopping spree.
So for the next few weeks, they bought an SUV, two four-wheelers, a camper, and a car trailer. They paid off all their bills and car repairs and gave $15,000 to friends.
However, in mid-June, the bank figured out their mistake. The bank took their $120,000 back and transferred it to the correct account.
Even worse, Robert and Tiffany were told they had to return all the money they’d spent, plus they were hit with $107,000 in overdraft fees! They tried to ghost the bank to get out of it, so the bank called the cops.
Robert and Tiffany have now been arrested on felony theft charges.
Who’s to blame here? Rob and Tiff for not telling the truth? The bank for making the mistake? What would you do?!
