    No actually, banks have a way of tracing that. Most countries have extradition treaties and the ones that don't you wouldn't want to live in. That much money leaves a trail, and they will find you for that much.

    No, I wouldn't. Big mistakes don't go unnoticed for long and it's not a good example to set for my kids. I wouldn't do it if I didn't have kids.

    I've done that! I mean I was a bank teller when we were live on line. The number I put in was the number you got! Of course at the end of the day when my drawer was horribly out of balance, it was a simple matter to figure out where it went. Fortunately the person had not withdrawn. I also paid someones credit card bill with their account number once. Hehe you know how much they overpaid ?

    It's actually happened before. People notice a lot of money in their account that shouldn't be. The bank will always find out about it, and will always demand it back. From a legal standpoint, it's the equivalent of robbing the bank.

    Wouldn't be worth being on the run for your entire life. No way. You can put in a lot less hard work than that and make the same amount through legitimate means, if you really want to. $3 million really isn't that much when you think about it.

    They asked for a $10.000 overdraft and the bank made a mistake and put $10mil in ther acc.

    Last heard of living it up in Hong kong.

    There are plenty of places you can hide the money...it's all over our news papers.
