It all started when a customer called the bank to find out why his large deposit hadn’t shown up.
Turns out the teller accidentally put the money in someone else’s account. That person just happened to have the same name.
When the 18-year-old had spent $5,000 and withdrawn about $20,000 in cash. He tried to convince the bank that he inherited the money, but he eventually admitted he knew it was a mistake by the bank.
The teen promised to work out a deal with the bank to return the money. He might have a tough time getting back all $5,000 he spent using a debit card. As for the $20,000 in cash he took out, that could very well be gone.
The unnamed person has yet to live up to his promise of returning the money. Now bank officials are deciding whether or not to press charges.
