Banker Sleeps On Keyboard, Accidentally Transfers Millions by flexgee: 10:02am On Jun 11, 2013
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.
The bank discovered the mistake shortly afterwards and corrected the error.
The case was taken to court by the man's 48-year-old colleague who was fired for letting the mistake slip
through when verifying the order.
The court ruled that the plaintiff should be reinstated in his job.

The picture above must be for illustration purpose. That can't be the guy I suppose. Two people were guilty here but why would the bank fire one person? Abi dem too dey do "man know man"?

And am here crying of being broke. Lawyers in d house, can't d owner of d account sue d bank for illegal transaction with his account?? Ie, depositing and withdrawing money from his account without his consent?? If they mistakenly deposited d money, they should alert him first and seek his permission to withdraw it, u know? cool
