Bank Accidentally Deposits $31k in Teen's Account, Hero Teen Spends ItExpand

Earlier this month, a bank teller http://onlineathens.com/local-news/2014-03-25/bank-wants-hull-teen-return-31000-wrongly-placed-his-account" rel="nofollow - accidentally deposited $31,000 into a teenager's bank account. The teen did the sensible thing and immediately started buying sh*t, spending more than $25,000 in just ten days.

On March 7, a customer at a Athens, Ga. bank attempted to deposit $31,000 into his account at First Citizens Bank. But, as it turns out, there was more than one customer at the bank with the man's name, and the teller accidentally deposited the money into the wrong person's account.

The lucky recipient, an 18-year-old kid, apparently checked his account, saw the huge balance, and decided to go on a spending spree. Within ten days, he withdrew $20,000 in cash and spent another $5,000 with his debit card.

When the teen tried to withdraw more money from the bank branch on March 18, a teller told him about the mistake and insisted that he return the money. The teen refused, claiming he'd received it as part of an inheritance from his grandmother.

A Madison County sheriff's deputy drove to the teen's house to further explain the situation and the consequences if the teen doesn't return the money.

From the http://onlineathens.com/local-news/2014-03-25/bank-wants-hull-teen-return-31000-wrongly-placed-his-account" rel="nofollow - Athens Banner-Herald :

The deputy told the teen the bank wants the money back as soon as possible, so the teen told the officer he would go to the bank and try to settle the matter without going to jail, according to the report.

However, the teen never showed back at the bank and banking officials told investigators last week that if the suspect didn't return the money, they would prosecute.

The unnamed teen is an early candidate for http://gawker.com/gawker-heroes-pope-francis-our-blessed-hero-of-reduce-1479124445" rel="nofollow - Gawker Hero of the Year .

Damn...somebody doesn't have a job anymore...

I wouldn't spend money accidentally put in my account...too easy to trace and you'll probably get stuck paying it back.

Now I find a bag with $31,000, that's a whole other story.

Let him keep the money!  On monopoly you don't pay back bank errors in your favor.  This is just more, "why couldn'this happen to me news."...I would've used about 10k on something important, having the money act as a loan, and paid them back later.  How long does he have to pay it back?  The installments shouldn't have interest.

Goodness so the right thing to do is call the bank and let them know you don't know where the money came from?

Though it would be tempting I couldn't. The bank would screw you up so bad. They would already know my black behind did it and would work to ruin me. The courts will not give a care for negro folk.Cry

I feel like the teller should be responsible.

....and it's not like you can just go to the ATM and withdraw thousands of dollars. Some idiot at the bank handed him that money. At no point in time they didn't catch this?

She should have confirmed the account.
If it's not collected then it counts as a loss to the bank and she could be fired but the 18 can still be prosecuted.
It's still theft of mislaid property or whatever it's called.


And ppl need to learn their account numbers it's your money after all.
No one should care more than you

Meh it's probably insured, either way that branch will have to eat the loss. They'll probably setup a payment plan of some sort.

just remember if a large amount of money suddenly appears in your account, it most likely belongs in someone else's account you should feel obligated  to not spend the money so it can return to the rightful owner. Because the same people eager to spend someone else's money, will be the same people ready to tear down the bank  when it's  their money being spent by someone else.

I will be so scared that I wont be able to deposit anything in any banks again with the fear of the placing a block so they could get their funds back, so I would never spend it...I will be so scared they will go to court to garnish wages or something....hell nah

It's the bank's fault. The boy was smart to say it was an inheritance. They need to count it as a loss, fire the teller and keep it moving.

Steven Fields mugshot

Steven Fields will have plenty of time on his hands to think about his poor decision making. The 18-year-old Hull, GA man turned himself in on Friday and was charged with theft by taking for  http://sandrarose.com/2014/03/bank-teller-mistakenly-deposits-31000-in-teens-account/" rel="nofollow - refusing to return $25,000  that a teller  http://sandrarose.com/2014/03/bank-teller-mistakenly-deposits-31000-in-teens-account/" rel="nofollow - mistakenly deposited  into his account.

Loudly and choked

I feel like if that type of thing happens, the recipient should get to keep it AND the bank should deposit the matching amount to the original owner. As much money as they make, they can take that kind of loss and give us little people some sh*t to look forward to possibly happening to us Cry

Soooo....

He really thinks keeping the money is worth possible prison time and a permanent record as a thief?

I damn sure wouldn't turn my nose up at $25,000, but its not worth all the mess he's putting himself thru.

Just un-ass those folks money...

I'll transfer the money to another bank account, and then close the account immediately so they don't try to recall the payment.
