    Normally I would think, "Hey, if the bank puts the money in your account, and they say it's yours, they're the ones who should be getting in trouble, not you."

    But really, if all of a sudden there are millions of dollars in your bank account, you don't just start spending it. You find out where it came from and why. This was just stupid on his part.

    More info on the story here.

    i think this is wrong. it's kind of the man's fault for spending money he knew was not his, but maybe he thought he inherited it or something, i don't know.

    but for sure the bank should get in trouble for this. it's their fault they put the money into the wrong account.

    While I agree that the bank should be held responsible for their mistake, the man is not totally in the clear. From the initial information, it doesn't seem like he tried to cover his bases at all. He just took advantage of the situation.
