German Bank Employee Naps On Keyboard, Accidentally Transfers Millions

Recommended Posts

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/06/10/bank-employee-naps-transfers-millions_n_3417123.html

An obviously tired German bank employee fell asleep on his keyboard and accidentally transformed a minor transfer into a 222 million euro ($293 million) order, a court heard Monday.

The Hessen labour court heard that the man was supposed to transfer just 62.40 euros from a bank account belonging to a retiree, but instead "fell asleep for an instant, while pushing onto the number 2 key on the keyboard" -- making it a huge 222,222,222.22 euro order.

Not much verification was required at all to move that sort of money...

Our financial system...banks... 2013 not 1963... heem...

I read the story. His supervisor missed it but it was identified by someone else before the payment was made.

I think it was corrected...probably meant reversed.
