A Georgia teenager named steven fields surrendered after passing $31,000 which was accidentally deposited into his account by First citizen bank back in March. Steven noticed the money in his account and immediately started spending it. $20,000 of it was immediately withdrawn in cash. He then used $5,000 money using his ATM card.
Steven used the money to bet a BMW at a dealership as well as various other stores and a bunch of restaurants. Fields apparently went back to his bank to make another withdrawal later in March and that’s when the bank noticed something was wrong. The bank realized that it had deposited the money in Stevens’ account instead of the actual account held by another member of the Fields family name. When Fields was confronted about this, he lied and said it was an inheritance from his grandmother.
Steven Fields is charged with theft. We have more on this story in today Other news!
