        Imagine waking up to an extra $141,991 in your bank account! That is what happened to an Auckland man after his bank mistakenly put it in his account.

        Mehdi Soheili, a chef, decided to take $106,217 of it and spend it on gambling. It took 8 days before the bank caught up with the error and froze his bank account.

        Soheili appeared in the Auckland District Court after admitting a charge of theft. Lawyer Shannon Withers suggested a custodial sentence and the debt would take 13 years to repay.

        Judge David Wilson, QC, adjourned sentencing until November.

        He spent the money in hopes of doubling up in gambling wins and profiting big time by the time the bank caught up with the error and removed the cash from his account.

        That is what i call a huge gamble!

        My goodness! I wouldn't touch that money with a 10ft pole. No way! I can't believe he had the nerve to do that.

        Thank you, Froggy!  I wouldn't touch it either - hell they know who you are, so it would only be a matter of time before they caught you. 

        The guy's an idiot and deserves whatever he gets.

        That would be like thinking you won the lottery and finding out it was the numbers from the day before. I would be so sad but i too would give it back. The risk is not worth it  .

        not that I would do it, however I got to play the devil's advocate here.. 

        How can this be characterized as theft in the first place? They did not steal the money, they found it in their account.

        So it is the bank's fault and if anything this person is guilty of greed but not of theft. there is no way these charges gonna hold in the court of law.

        I would have told the courts that someone contacted me saying I won the money. You know those persons calls or email people all the time .  All I had to do was pay the taxes and give them my bank account #. I met them at XXX parking lot and gave them the cash and my bank account #.

        Come to think of it. That did happen to me before...I was gambling at a rogue online casino that had cheating software. The casino was called CASINO BAR. I've made about 6 or 7 $100 deposits. I could never seen to get a head in their game of Blackjack. So upon researching I found they were in fact using rigged software. I contacted their finance dept and asked for a refund of my deposits. The guy agreed and did refund my deposits. They were for $100 each. But he coded the refund wrong and they came in at $1000 (This is a true story) each. I withdrew $2000 (I was young in college and scared ). My girlfriend and I went to Biloxi and New Orleans for Mardi Gras. Little Richard had a concert outside of one of the casinos. It was stupid packed. I end up winning $12k it didn't matter what casino I went into. I couldn't lose. When I got back home a few days later the bank called me and told me what had happened. I went and deposited like $7000 back into that account. But to be honest with you. If the bank wouldn't have caught it. I really doubt I would have say anything either...

        Got to love those kind of gambling trips where you just can't lose! Your story is amazing from start to finish especially a casino that was so quick to refund your deposits and then make a fantastic killing at the casinos with it!

        Well, i can't blame him; he could have won huge or something and no one would notice just like in chocolateman's case. That's an amazing story btw.

        I doubt I'd do anything with money not knowing from where they came. Then again, it sounds strange to call a bank and complain about it. I guess I would let it rest until the bank finds out about its mistake.
