What Would You Do? Teen Spends Bank’s Whopping Mistake
ATHENS, Georgia– A bank’s mistake turns into a major spending spree for an 18-year-old.
Athens Banner-Herald reports that a First Citizens Bank in Madison County, Georgia accidentally deposited $31,000 into the teen’s bank account; there are reportedly several people with the same name who have accounts at the bank.
When the person, whose bank account the money should have gone into called the bank, tellers started looking into the matter.
According to the Athens Banner-Herald, the teen had already taken out $20,000 in cash and spent $5,000 using his ATM card.
Authorities told the teen he needs to return the money; the teen said he thought the money came from an inheritance from his grandmother’s estate.
