Pepsi's loyalty program puts cash in your Venmo account

Pepsi's loyalty program puts cash in your Venmo account Do you wish soft drink makers would stop using point systems for reward programs and simply give you cold, hard cash? You're about to get your wish in a manner of speaking. Pepsi is launching a PepCoin loyalty program that rewards you for buying both a single-serve beverage and a Frito-Lay snack by sending money to PayPal and Venmo accounts. If you scan enough codes on bottles and bags, you'll receive a little bit of cash. You'll have to earn $2 before it goes to your account, but this is real spending money -- you can use it to pay your share of last night's pizza. The beverage behemoth tells Engadget this is a permanent program.

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.

Milford man arrested, charged with stealing from Pop Warner Football and Cheer Association MILFORD — Police say 30-year-old Bahliek Brown is facing larceny and forgery charges after stealing from a youth football and cheer association. According to police, Brown was arrested on Monday on two active arrest warrants. Police say Brown reportedly stole over $1,550 from the Milford Pop Warner Football and Cheer Association bank account by cashing a fraudulent check in February.

Police say Brown is also accused of failing to appear in court on August 2nd stemming from a larceny arrest on June 12th, 2015.

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.
