Did you hear?

Did you hear about the kiwi couple in the news this week? They asked the bank for a loan of $100,000 dollars. The bank accidently put ten millions dollars in their bank account, and guess what? They did a runner with the money.

Boy, ten million dollars would buy ten million cans of fancy feast. I could feed the whole cat blogosphere with that money. It wasn't me and my mum though, we would have had to be honest and give the money back, after we took hundreds of photos of our bank balance!!. If you were honest, we wonder if they would give you a reward?

What would your beans do? Let the bank know or run away with the money?

  1. My humans would definitely let the bank know! ALthough, how could a bank make such a big mistake? Someone's got some 'splainin' to do!

  3. MomBean would let the bank know, she doesn't want to think about the repayment schedule for that much money!

  4. Making a run with a house full of cats and a loaf dog would probably be tad difficult... and make for a good story:)

    As I'm far from a friend of greedy banks - and in this case rather... well, non clever - I hope the runners use the money wisely, give to charity, share with lesser fortunate as well as have fun...

  5. We'd let the bank know pronto. But it would be nice to dream! I like your idea of taking a picture of your bank balance too.

  6. Oh, my mom would let the bank know...I wonder what the interest would be on that much money in your account...just for a few days? I think we'd negotiate to be able to keep the interest so we could buy some nice cat treats!

  7. Our beans would definitely let the bank know about the error!! Mom says she couldn't imagine spending money that didn't belong to her.
    Though, we'd have to take some pics of the bank balance first too :)

  9. Our Momma and Daddy would let the bank know. They are honest people. Besides, if they ran away, we might not be able to go with them and that's not an option.

    But we can dream about all of those treats and toys that could have been bought....

  10. Our Beans would let the bank know too. Mum said she would panic if she suddenly saw all that money in her account. It would be nice though.

  11. It would be tempting to run, but we are so settled here, where would we go/. We would have to be honest cause if the Bank ever wanted us to pay it back, we couldn't!

  12. Ya gotta let the bank know, because being on the run for the rest of your life would just be no fun at all.

  13. Maybe they would let us keep the interest it earned while it was temporarily in there???...Probably NOT

  14. Yep, we heard about this in da news. We would let the bank know as well. Not our money after all.

    As Max says, they will be on the run forever.

  15. Last year Mom was balancing a statement that had just arrived. Mom had to tell the people who watch her monies they put $2,000.00 too much in her account. She had to try REALLY hard to convince them, too. They did not believe her at first.

    The account number they SHOULD have put it in was one number off. You'd think the people who SHOULD have gotten the money would of noticed it was not there, right?

    But an error in dollar amount should really have been caught in the night processing. Someone DOES have some 'splainin' to do!

  17. We don't want to be fugitives. It isn't worth the money. So we'd have to give it back. (Not to mention that Jan would kill us if we stole 10 million dollars and ran.)

  18. My humans would have to let the bank know. It would be fun to dream about what to do with that much money though!!

  20. Mum would give it back. Eventually they catch you and put you in jail. Mum would not like jail.

  21. G'day Poppy, Mum read about this in the news over here and told us about it. While it's be nice to have all that money, she says that she'd have to contact the bank and tell them about it if it ever happened to her. There's no way that the three of us want to go on the run. Hopefully the bank would offer some sort of reward for our honesty. Love what you said about taking a picture of the bank balance. It's a nice idea to think of 10 million cans of Fancy Feast for all the hungry kittes out there.

  22. They're bound to get caught! IMO it's stupid to take the money and run.
