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.
