Imagine waking up one day to find an extra $120,000 (£97,000) in your bank account. You did not make $120,000 or win $120,000, but there it is, $120,000, just sitting there. Cool!

What would you do with all that cash? Pay off the mountain of student loans you’d otherwise be stuck with until you die? Buy a house? Buy a car? Buy this weird-looking rich-people furniture?

Robert and Tiffany Williams of Montoursville, Pa., did not call the bank, police say.

When a non-hypothetical $120,000 intended for a business was accidentally transferred into their BB&T bank account because of a teller error, the couple splurged on a camper, a Chevy and a racecar, state trooper Aaron Brown told the Williamsport Sun-Gazette. Authorities say they also distributed $15,000 to friends who needed the money.

All told, they spent $100,000 in about 2½ weeks, WNEP reported.

Eventually, though, the bank contacted them on or around June 20 after sending the money to the correct account. The bank notified Tiffany Williams, 35, that they were responsible for returning all the funds, Brown told the Sun-Gazette. He added that the withdrawal resulted in a $107,416 overdraft because the couple’s bank account had only $1,121 in it before the accidental windfall.

Newly engaged Britons 'held in French jail after migrant found in car'

Newly engaged Britons 'held in French jail after migrant found in car' A newly engaged British couple holidaying in France claim they were held in a police cell for two days after being wrongly accused of trying to smuggle a migrant in the boot of their car. Sam Hemingway, 23, and Jordan Valentine, 20, were returning from their engagement trip in June when police at the ferry port in Calais found the migrant, thought to be a 16-year-old Iranian. The couple say they did not know the teenager was stowed away in their car and were "just as shocked" as the police to find him. They claim they were held in separate cells without any food or access to a lawyer.

BB&T Bank did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Tiffany first assured the bank she would work out a repayment plan with her husband, but she eventually ceased communications, WNEP reported.

“That is kind of shocking, with all the procedures the banks have set up, checking and double-checking and triple-checking, there’s no way anybody gets away with that stuff,” Nate Weaver, a neighbor of the Williamses, told WNEP.

The Sun-Gazette reported that the couple, in separate interrogations, told police that they “admitted to knowing the mislaid money did not belong to them, but they spent it anyway.”

The Williamses could not be reached immediately, and it was unclear whether they had retained legal counsel.

The couple now face three felony charges of theft and receiving stolen property, court records show. They appeared in court last week and posted bail of $25,000 each. The Pennsylvania State Police could not immediately comment on the case to The Washington Post.
