A error made by a bank created a fat bank account for a teenager who went on a spending spree and pocketed $20,000 in cash.
A man went into a First Citizens Bank and made a $31,000 deposit, but because there are several people by the same same with accounts at that bank, the teller put the money into the wrong account, according to the police report.
10 days later, the victim called the bank about the money missing from his accounts. Tellers looked into the matter and realized the HUGE error. By that time the 18-year-old man had withdrawn $20,000 cash and spent $5,000 using his ATM card.
When the suspect went into the bank the teller informed him of the mistake and the teen insisted that the money was from an inheritance. When the police went to the teen’s house, he said he thought the money came from his grandmother’s estate.
HOW do you not notice for TEN DAYS that $31,000 is missing from your bank account. You check that shit as SOON as you leave the bank. What would you do if you were a teen and realized you had this much money in your account. Do you think the kid actually thought it was from his grandmother or is he making excuses for himself?
