A Bank accidentally puts 31,000 usd in Teens accound and Fucked it up in less than 3 minutes quick quick quick

A Georgia bank is asking a teenager to return $31,000 that was mistakenly deposited into his account. The problem is he may have already spent most of the cash.

The Madison County Sheriff Office police were dispatched to First Citizens Bank in Hull, Ga., on March 18 concerning financial fraud, a police report states. There, employee Kristy Bryant explained that on March 7 a customer named Steven Fields deposited $31,000, but a teller entered the amount into the account of another customer who had the same name.

After receiving the mistaken deposit, Steven Fields, 18, withdrew $20,000 and made $5,000 in purchases with his ATM card, as first reported by the Athens Banner-Herald. The deposit error wasn't noticed until original Steven Fields complained to the bank of his missing money on March 17.

When the alleged deposit recipient tried to withdraw more money the next day, the bank "informed him of the mistake that was made and asked him to return the money," the police report stated, but "Mr. Fields claimed that the money was his from an inheritance."
