Couple blew through $120K accidentally deposited in their bank account

When $120,000 intended for a business was accidentally transferred into Robert and Tiffany Williams' BB&T bank account because of a teller error the couple splurged on a camper a Chevrolet car and a race car

On June 21, the Williams told a bank representative they planned to arrange a payment plan, reports state.

But by June 19, the pair had spent six figures on purchases that included an SUV, two four-wheelers and a auto trailer.

Each Robert, 36, and his 35-year-old spouse had been arraigned on costs for theft and receiving stolen property.

The Williamsport Sun-Gazette reports that on the 20th June, the bank contacted Tiffany about the error, notifying her that the money had been retrieved from their account, resulting in a $107,416 overdraft fee.

Such is the case with a Pennsylvania couple who found themselves in some hot water after allegedly spending almost US$120,000 that had been mistakenly deposited into their joint account. The error was found almost a month later.

Police said the married couple blew through $100,000 of the cash in just two weeks. A complaint revealed that the couple purchased two cars and several other goods.

Aramco is now chaired by the head of the sovereign wealth fund and the industrial portfolio rests with another minister. His relationship with the crown prince will be critical. "The world can no longer afford such policy miscalculations".

The pair reportedly gave their friends in need each $15 000 (about R225 000). Rather than contacting the bank and reporting the error, the couple did what many people would undoubtedly be at least tempted to do: They went on a spending spree. The bank instead discovered the error on June 20 and chose to contact them shortly after. At first, she assured that she will soon figure out a plan to repay the money to the bank but eventually ended all the communication with the bank. "She told the bank her husband had spent a great portion of the funds and purchased a four-wheeler", the publication detailed. She also told them that she would talk to her husband to come up with a repayment agreement.

Instead of reporting the error to the bank, the pair chose to spend it over a period of two weeks, Fox5 reports.

Back in June, one Montoursville, Pennsylvania, couple apparently found themselves in that predicament.

On Monday, they appeared in court in Lycoming County, and waived their rights to a preliminary hearing.

As it turned out, a teller at the couple's bank had accidentally deposited the $120,000 in the couple's account on May 31 when it should have gone to Dimension Covington Investment, LLC. He was arrested and extradited from Hong Kong.
