This incident would typically be seen as a stroke of good luck, but it’s causing more and more problems. How do you react to a Bank mistakenly giving you $70k?
A suburban Philadelphia man is facing theft charges after police say he spent much of the $70,000 mistakenly deposited into his bank account.
Bensalem police say 22-year-old Joseph Bucci spent all but about $2,000 of the $69,300 in misbegotten money after it showed up in his account in March.
Like any bank, Bank of America makes its living “holding” your money in exchange for the convenience of being able to lie to minorities when you are being held up on 10th avenue. They aren’t there to care about you, and no matter how many times my customer care associate calls me I’m not putting more than 25 dollars in my second bank account because the only reason I have it is because I’m a sucker for sales pitch. For this man, the apathy is even more clear when he finds out he’s been listed as deceased for 3 years.
The bank has been reporting the 39-year-old South Carolinian dead to all major credit agencies since May 2009, WIS-TV reported.
Livingston brought the problem to the bank’s attention last year, when they told him it would take 30 days to fix — but it’s been five months, and he’s still caught in bureaucratic limbo.
