Think a cheeky$ two million would solve your problems? Wrong!
A technological flaw dedicated an Australian human a limitless overdraft on his bank account, permitting him to expend big, and often, but the rich life didn’t build him happy.
The bank error permitted Goulburn man Luke Moore, then in his mid 20 s, to continue to withdraw money from his bank account as an limitless overdraft, reaching an excess of A $2.1 million.
After making a handful of pays on his home loan, Moore gradually began expending like Richie Rich, buying Alfa Romeo and Maserati cars, a speed barge and a bunch of valuable pop culture paraphernalia.
When his financial institution eventually cottoned on to the error, Moore was jailed with a minimum total 7 year sentence for obtaining financial advantage by subterfuge and living off the proceeds of a crime.
But this week, Moore was released after just five months served when an appeal in the Supreme court of New South Wales find the verdict overturned and Moore walk free albeit in a lot of debt.
A back-to-normal Moore said that the millionaire lifestyle wasn’t worth the hype anyway and its not something he misses, with the exception of “the cocaine, the strippers and fast cars.”
Speaking with The Daily Telegraph Moore said that the idea that fund buys you females, power and happiness merely wasnt true.
“I pull more chicks now with A $20 in my pocket than I did when I was splashing the banks money, ” Moore said. “Ive learned money doesnt buy everything, but it was great while it lasted.”
The 29 -year-old man has gone back to university to survey criminal law of all things, with a sense that maybe the best things in life really are free.
“Would I do it again? No. I enjoyed driving around in flash vehicles with no shirt , no shoes and with the wind in my hair Ive had to give everything back but Im happier this way as Ive realised my family and friends are my biggest treasures.”
