Couple blow $120000 accidentally put in their bank account

Couple blow $120000 accidentally put in their bank account

The bank remedied their mistake by transferring the $120,000 into the correct account and called the couple again on June 21 to tell them they were required to pay back the money they reportedly spent.

The couple allegedly began spending the cash, paying off bills and buying a camper, according to reports. Robert and Tiffany Williams of Montoursville, Pennsylvania, told authorities that they spent the money on an SUV, a camper, a vehicle trailer, two four-wheelers, and other things.

"During the investigation, the Williams admitted they were aware that the money deposited in their account did not belong to them and that they had made numerous purchases with that money", according to a statement from state police. He added that the withdrawal resulted in a $107,416 overdraft as a result of the couple's checking account had exclusively $1,121 in it earlier than the unintended windfall.

Both Robert, 36, and his 35-year-old wife were arraigned on charges for theft and receiving stolen property in the U.S. state Pennsylvania.

The couple received the erroneous deposit in their BB&T bank account on 31 May, state trooper Aaron Brown told the Williamsport Sun-Gazette newspaper.

The money mistakenly deposited to the couple was meant to go to an investment firm.

But instead of contacting the bank about the deposit, the couple allegedly spent most of the money.

"She no longer had the funds because she had already paid off bills".

According to the complaint, she told the bank that they had spent some of the money on a four-wheeler.

Police said the married couple blew through $100,000 of the cash in just two weeks.

"That's kind of shocking", Nate Weaver, a neighbour, told local media. Tiffany said she and her husband would work on a payment plan.

"With all the procedures the banks have set up, checking and double-checking and triple-checking - there's no way anybody gets away with that stuff". They were arraigned on Tuesday before District Judge Gary Whiteman and released on $25,000 bail each.

A Pennsylvania couple had it happen to them.

"I don't even know what's going on", the father said.
