bank mistakenly gives unlimited credit to man, withdraws 1.5 million from account

story here

 

What type of account did they give him. Makes it seem as easy as choosing the wrong thing from a dropdown menu gave him access to all those funds

From the comments after the post:

 

It took BOA 2 weeks to figure this scam out but in 30 minutes they can foreclose.

 

LOL I would have sent DW with the money to Korea and after I got out  in less then 15 months joined her there.

Considering other places money gets wasted, this doesn't offend me one bit. Obviously, it would have been cool if someone a little better prepared got the money but if the dude had a good time, who cares? :smileyhappy:
