Aussie Used Bank Error to Buy Cocaine and Strippers
If your bank screwed up and suddenly you had unlimited money in your checking account, what would you do? Report the glitch or hookers and blow?
Luke Moore from Goulburn, Australia went with Option B.
Back in 2010, when Luke was 22, he realized that he could withdraw an unlimited amount from his checking account, even though it was empty. He wound up taking out around $1.6 million before he got caught.
Luke spent the money on several cars, including a Maserati and an Aston Martin. He took crazy vacations and bought a boat. And, yes, he did lots of cocaine and hired a whole bunch of strippers.
He was sentenced to seven years in prison last year for fraud. But he appealed because he said there was no fraud, he just took money out and his bank let him. A court agreed, so he was released after just five months.
Now he's broke and lives with his mom, but he's going back to school and studying criminal law.
