"The Bank accidentally gave me credit for 2 million and I spent it on strippers and cars"Pictolic
Young Australian Luke Brett Moore just lost his job, when he discovered that the Bank mistakenly revealed to him unlimited credit. A gift of fate it was difficult not to accept. According to Luke, he just started playing and couldn't stop. Until there was a knock at the door And... the story of Luke Moore.
I guess it's hard to believe, but I never planned this way to take money from Bank St. George and did not return. I was wondering when I get a call from Bank and ask to return that amount.
So, in 2010 I was an ordinary Bank account from which I pay the mortgage, medical insurance and bills. I got in a fairly serious car accident, and payment of accounts moved to other Bank. I don't remember all the circumstances of how it happened.
The first days after my discharge, I was worried that I have no money for the next payment for a mortgage. What do I do? But then he took a payment through a Bank account in St. George and I thought, "Oh, well".
Two weeks later the same thing happened. This continued throughout the year, and from the Bank there was no news, although the account status showed "overrun".
Then I called my credit card company and asked to carry out direct debit from the account 5 thousand dollars. A couple of days — 50 thousand dollars. And both times the request has been approved.
I was in shock. I realized that I have access to unlimited amounts of credit money. Later I bought the first car, Alfa Romeo 156, fully completed. Then I purchased a Hyundai Veloster to go to Sydney and buy a Maserati.
It was a crazy time. I was young and stupid 22-year-old boy, who had just recovered after the accident and was out of work for the first time since 14 years. I broke up with the girl you met in school, and was looking for something new elsewhere.
I moved to the gold coast near Brisbane. In one weekend I flew to "Ecig Paradise" (Surfer's Paradise), I liked it there, and I decided to stay.
There was cool, I was having a good time. In fact, I did what would make any guy my age with so much money — just have fun and enjoy myself. I went to strip clubs and spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on girls, cocaine and the like.
I even purchased a fishing boat, which is very loved. As well as a 10-foot bill from Banksy — it was the most precious thing along with an autograph of Amy Winehouse. Every time I made a request to Bank St. George, I did not expect to get the money. However, each time I received them.
I think the first time my mom thought I was a drug dealer, but then it became clear that I was not involved in drugs. Although people around me quickly realized that it is better not to ask where the money comes from. I opened the shop in the "long cast Paradise", while local media reported that my bedroom is reminiscent of Aladdin's cave, bursting with treasures, although most of this stuff I sold in my shop.
One day in 2012 I was sitting in the bedroom at his mother's house in Goulburn when he heard a knock on the window. Before I get to the front door as the police were already inside. They practically pinned mom against the wall and poked a camera in my face. The police were armed to the teeth, like he was expecting that I was some kind of gangster. I was arrested. The following night I spent in the cell until I was released on bail. After a few years I was convicted of misappropriation of funds by fraud and sentenced to 4.5 years of imprisonment.
I didn't expect that I will sit, think, will justify me. But I had to refer to a free lawyer, and the system in Australia is poorly funded. In addition, they were not interested in my business, and as a result, the court was protecting me barely. In prison was just awful. You are away from family, locked in a cell. I was imprisoned for six months, and this was the most horrible period of my life. From day one, as soon as I got there, I was trying to find a way out. I have read so many law books as I could find. He built his defense and by the time the case again came to court, just handed their work to the lawyer appointed to defend me. And a few weeks ago I was released.
Under Australian laws, I was not obliged to inform the Bank what was going on. Yes, the judge said that I acted dishonestly, but in our society not imprisoned for immoral behavior. Judging by the comments in social networks, many young and narrow-minded people would do the same as I do. However, if I had the opportunity, I would not repeat it. It has ruined my life and family and does not cost a couple of months with strippers and cocaine.
Only recently I was able to regroup and use this experience as something useful — I'm studying at the University to an attorney-criminalist. In prison I saw that many people out there need help, not imprisonment.
