A young shopkeeper apparently has been put behind bars after hundreds of thousands of pounds was accidentally paid to his bank account and he chose to say nothing about it. Sandeep Singh, age 34, was mistakenly credited an amount of £766,098 within a duration of two years when his bank details were confused with those of the Rubicon Casino located in Wolverhampton.

Wow, i wonder how many people would have owned up to this? This really is one moral dilemma and i would like to think that i would tell the bank but,unless you are in this position, you cannot really know for sure

Scamming is never a good thing, but this man however, he got free money on his account. Why would you ring some alarm bells. This guy thought he was lucky and it is kind of cruel that he gets a year. A year is a lot in a lifetime. If he never have hurted someone then a long jail time is a horrible punishment, especially when you are locked down with all those chavs and other foreign degens. I hope he bought some bitcoins with his money, cause he would be billionaire now. So guys, report the free money if you get some, but don't forget to say you bought bitcoin first and tell them you "lost" it.

i don't know really... realistically yes he could've informed the company and tried to correct the mistake, but I think this is just a moral obligation and not a legal one, so when he gets a year of jail time for this, I think its stupid. company made a mistake, company should be responsible for it.

766k is still a sizeable amount of money, even today. If that guy really intended to steal it, he would have sold his shop, emptied his accounts and be long gone, before any charges could be filed. So he looks more like a scapegoat.

This man received a one-year prison sentence the cause being an electronic or personal mistake. Now his life was seriously shaken as well for his family in India. If he still wanted to take advantage of this money he had to sell everything and when he reached his country to withdraw the money and was hiding. Cool

I too don't know what i do if so much money for no reason is in my account, of course it is hard to give it back to bank and I think it is not my problem that someone makes mistakes and his money is in my account, and of course very big fine to get 1 year in prison because of not giving money back

He ended up getting a very low jail time.
A part on it might be the fact the most of the money was still in his account.
Was there ever a chance that the casino wouldnt find out what was going on?
The weird thing though is, that it took them more than two years.

£766,000 is approximately US$1 million. So, this guy was getting roughly half a million dollars a year! That is quite a lot of money even in an expensive country like the United Kingdom. Nothing is free in this world. Now he has to pay a price for his crime.

Put yourself in the position of, you open up your account statement and see that some unknown Tom you person or organisation has deposited a huge amount of money into your account. Would you think, cool, I no wonder have a huge amount of money from some previously unknown benefactors, or would you think... hang on a minute, this is strange...maybe I should check it out?

Apparently it was a mistake. So unless you find out that someone has gifted you that money,
you are not using it.
And you are not using it for the above reasons.
With today;s technology ans systems, you think you will get away with it/

of course this is a very great temptation to take advantage of the money that you accidentally came at the expense of ..... a very great temptation ... but sooner or later mistakes are revealed .... and then there comes a reckoning ..... but the temptation is certainly very large .. highly

This free money in the account are really a dream! But i´m wondering, that the Casino needs two Years to found the mistake... So it seems, that they don´t need the money Cool It was a funny news, when this guy use the money to play in the same Casino and won the Jackpot with them Big Smile

Indeed, that was a long time, to discover you are missing some money.
And it wasnt a small amount either.
Makes you wonder, how much money they are making after all, that they didnt notice it earlier
and how qualified are the people working there Smile

Sure is a very long time and the banks institutions did not find this mistake in time. They have no way to verify these errors but when accountants make the calculations discovers missing money and begin to investigate where they lost that money and of course the chances to find the guilty are extremely high.
