    Who hasn't hoped that they would suddenly find millions in their bank account?

    I'd just be happy if they let me keep the interest on that for my trouble.

    If you're gonna pull a stunt like that, you gotta disappear afterwards.

    I read that article the other day and to the guy's credit, he DID report it to the bank and they told him it was his. I'd say lesson learned - why does he need to do 25 yrs for that??

    I think the Banker should go to jail!...

    plus... who knows his "investments" may pan out and make some money... in that case he deserves a cut of the profits!

    Because he spent money which wasn't his. Does it get much simpler than that? :disgust1:

    :stupid:
    Yeah, we're not talking about a 25 dollar bank fee that was mistakenly reversed. When 5 million dollars shows up in your account it's only a matter of time before the actual owner comes looking for it. Spending it is just stupid.

    Not sure if his stupidity really deserves 25 years though. Seems kind of excessive.

    If you receive a package in the mail addressed to you that you didn't order, it's yours for free.

    Sounds like the bloke got 5 years for the crime and 20 for being a moron. As if they weren't going to come looking for it.:disgust:
