A New Zealand couple found an extra NZ$10 million (or $6 million U.S. dollars). They had asked the bank to cover an overdraft of about NZ$10,900, but their bank deposited 1,000 times that amount. They couldn’t believe their luck, so they wired the bulk of the money offshore and fled the country. Local reports speculated they may have fled to China or South Korea after transferring as much as NZ$6 million to an offshore account. Now they are on Interpol’s most wanted list. Wow.

  1. Yeah let’s make that happen to my favor too. Can’t wait but not really it wont happen to me. Besides I wouldn’t want it in my conscience. It would be fun for a little bit but I’d have to give it all back. Gosh this reminds me of the movie Millions!

  2. Interpol’s most wanted? For a measly $6 mil? Wow, they really must not have much to do these days…
