Teenager wakes to find over 16 million bucks in his bank account after bank made error
Whether you’re a bloody hard worker whose okay with some fair dinkum hard yakka or not, you can’t deny that the ultimate dream is becoming rich while doing absolutely f**k-all to deserve it. You know, like the Kardashians or Donald Trump. With that in mind, put yourself in the shoes of Irish teenager Dane Gillespie who checked his bank account only to discover that he was almost nine million pounds richer than he should have been.
First of all, f**ken hell. Nine million pounds is over sixteen million dollary-doos, and that’s disappear to Mexico money. Holy s**t. Anyway, let’s get back to the story, Dane was told to go and check his bank account by Mum because his Nan was depositing 8.9 grand for him.
That alone is a f**ken decent score, but thanks to the dopey bank letting monkeys operate the computers, the wrong amount was keyed in and those thousands were turned into millions.
Dane’s Mum said that Dane was pretty f**ken keen to spend some of his newfound coin. “He’s going to me, ‘I’m gonna order a Porsche’ and I said, ‘Don’t be daft, that’s not our money, we need to get this sorted’. It was like that for a good few hours. For an 18-year-old being a millionaire for the day, he just can’t believe it. He just wanted to go out and spend, but if you do then you have to pay it back. He thought all his birthdays came at once this morning. It’s mad.”
Luckily, Dane’s clearly a good lad who does what his Mum recommends, but even if he had have been inclined to hit the frog and toad and just bail with the coin, the bank reckons they were all over it.
A spokesperson said, “The customer paid the cheque in at the branch and unfortunately the wrong amount was keyed. The error was noticed straight away and the balance was corrected in a matter of seconds. While the amount was shown on his balance, cheques do not clear straight away, so the funds were never in is account. Sadly he may have to wait a little longer to buy the Porsche he wants.”
Final thought: Poor bugger. You can’t imagine how badly he shat his dacks when he saw the excessive amount in his account. And then the bank just snatched it all back off of him. Talk about a prick-tease.
