$120,000 Appeared in Couple's Bank Account, They Spent It, Face Charges

If you look up your bank account balance one day and it's six figures higher than normal, you NEED to expect that someone will find that mistake.

36-year-old Robert Williams and his 35-year-old wife Tiffany from Montoursville, Pennsylvania received a massive boost to their bank account back on May 31st when a teller accidentally deposited $120,000 into their account. Their balance before that? $1,121.

But rather than contact the bank, Robert and Tiffany decided the right move was to spend it all.

Over 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, even gave $15,000 to friends.

But in mid-June, the bank figured out their mistake and took their $120,000 back and transferred it to the correct account.

Robert and Tiffany were informed 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, and they were arrested on felony theft charges.
