re: Detroit man gambles away $1.5 million accidentally given by ATM


So how much will he have to pay back when they factor in the overdraft charges?

And to anyone saying it's the banks fault, you are a retard. It's theft, end of story.

He'll pay back nothing. How do you get money from a man who has no money? Selling him into slavery would be an option, but it turns out slavery is no longer legal in this country.

It is definitely the bank's fault, dickface. He wasn't hacking into the ATM or entering a secret code that caused it to spit out money.

If it were really "according to hoyle" theft, he would be face with more than 15 months.

I find that people on message boards who try to take the moral high road are usually common simpletons. Like this fella, for example.

Are you stupid? He didn't own that money, period. He knew his account was in the negative, he had to. This is why there are stereotypes in this country. What does it take for a person to be so damn stupid to do something like this?


A degree from TAMU.

You're the one saying that making repeated trips to the ATM to pull out money that you know isn't yours at an obscene rate over a 6 month period isn't theft, but I'm the simpleton?

Just making sure I have that correct.

Hey fella with two first names and a Tenn logo, get your dick out of your sister before trying to comment on someone else's intelligence.

Writing a sentence that says, "it isn't the bank's fault; it's theft" definitely makes you a simpleton.

You are clearly a Grade-A dumbass and so you likely don't even know what mutual exclusivity is, but what your moronic sentence does is it establishes bank fault and user theft as mutually exclusive possibilities. This is of course retarded, which is not surprising given that we have established that you are in fact retarded. To be clear, we're talking full retard here. Not just some Forrest Gump or Rain Man partial retardation. Naw man. Full retard.

The ATM user committed theft under the letter of the law, sure. But he did so only as a result of what is un-fricking-questionably the bank's fault. And the prosecutors thought so as well.

quote:

but prosecutors said his crime was a "lapse of judgment" and placed blame with Bank of America for allowing the withdrawals to take place.


So how about you eat a dick and then give some more thought to the origins of my moniker.

I was working somewhere and there was a payroll screw up. An extra $1500 was accidentally credited in a bunch of employee accounts. You would not believe how fast some people spent that money. They ended up having to pay it back about a year later when it was caught.

So anytime you overdraw on an account it is theft? And if not, when is the line drawn? Do you draw the line before 1.5 million just because it is a big number? Considering this was a transaction within the confines of his account, and the withdrawn money was kept track of because it was a transfer within his account, I honestly don't agree with a convictable criminal charge of theft here, personally.

Now, that doesn't mean he should have been legally able to keep the money, but just because this guy is very stupid and dishonest, doesn't mean that it is a slam dunk case for theft.

If I was this dude when I get out I'm getting someone to sit down and hear my story and publish that shite. I'm sure you could make some of the money back because that has to be one HELL of a story. I'm sure this dude lived on the edge and probably never slept thinking they were gonna find out anyday.
