Couple Arrested For Spending $120,000 Mistakenly Put In Their Bank Account

If it seems too good to be true, it definitely is. Like when your broke ass finds $120k in your bank account that is not supposed to be there? Leave. It. Alone. And call the bank! It's not your money. Promise.

If you ever wake up one morning, hop online to check your bank account and see that it's got an extra $120,000 in it that shouldn't be there, you may want to think twice about spending it and call the bank instead.

A Pennsylvania couple had it happen to them. They spent it without first calling the bank. Now, they're facing felony theft charges.

WNEP reports Robert and Tiffany Williams of Montoursville, Pa., are accused of spending money on an SUV, two four-wheelers, a camper and a car trailer. They also reportedly paid bills, had car repairs done and gave $15,000 to friends.

Police reportedly say the money got there due to a mistake by a teller at BB&T. Within three weeks, it was all spent. Once the mistake was caught, the bank transferred it to the right account. Then it contacted the Williams about paying back the $107,000 in overdraft fees they had incurred as a result of a shopping spree.

The couple said they would work out a payment plan, according to WNEP, but then ignored subsequent contacts from the bank and are now facing theft charges. They were arrested and released on $25,000 bail. (KHOU)

That said, I'd like to think I could spend $120k in way less than three weeks. PSH. I could do it in seven days, easy.
