This story made me laugh. But we all know that there would be zero chance that he gets to keep a nickel, including any interest acquired.

In fact, knowing how the IRS works, I would expect that the man will be charged interest for "borrowing" IRS money and if he didn't tell the bank, no doubt he would have also been charged with felony crimes.

That is how our justice system works. They mess up, we always pay for all mess ups.

Sounds kinda crazy but I'd considering withdrawing all the money in cash, bury it somewhere safe, then when the Feds find out, plead guilty. Do the jail time. get out on good behavior in a few years. Then buy a shovel and pour yourself a MaiTai.

That wouldn't be easy.
It wouldn't fit in a little briefcase like on tv and no bank has that kind of cash laying around.
The bank would also report it as suspicious activity.

You better just wire the money to an off shore account.

Like this government is ever going to budget jack squat. That "someone else who needs it desperately" is going to get theirs, regardless of whether $8 mil goes missing or not. That predates COVID... we're talking about the same collective of asshats, chuckleheads, and people chosen by other Americans as their representatives in DC who misplaced $21 Trillion

We're in Bonnie & Clyde days again. Anyone who steals from this government is OK in my book, seeing as how that government has stolen America's freedom, economy, and future they should feel blessed it's just money being taken from Uncle Sam and not his collective oxygen.

Withdraw it and run.

It’s not that hard to sneak into Mexico.


Yeah sneaking into mexico is the easy part, try staying alive down there while carrying 8 million in withdrawn cash, that’s 136 lbs of cash if it’s in hundreds.

Strictly speaking I would have to agree, but there are reports that they are bailing out wealthy stock market investors that choose to game their savings instead of the needy. 1700 would be a pretty good chess rating on Lichess, but some people likely cheat and use computers. What did the firemen do with the money donated to the 911 first responder victims in NY.

Nah, just need 8 of these...

So, functionally, HOW would you take the money and run?

-my penny-ante checking account only lets me withdraw $350 in cash every 24 hours. So that's $1400 by Monday morning (making another withdraw at 1 am on Monday)

I guess you could transfer money out to another account in another bank. I don' t have another account.

Try to buy stuff until your bank card maxes out. Go hit the sporting good stores or something.

At any rate you'd have trouble getting more than about 1700 of it out, and they'd just deduct that from your "correct" check. which you were waiting on in the first place.

Now, if you checked your bank account and there was eight million dollars in it and you got a heart attack, could you sue the government? They are the ones who stimulated the heart attack.


Obviously the cause of death was Covid-19.

I'd like to make a withdrawal..... 8 Million please



Unfortunately, my bank limits my daily withdrawals to $7 million a day. I'm just unlucky like that.

But seriously though, the guy said he didn't know if it was the bank's mistake or the Federal govt.....well, if that happened to me the first thing I'd do is drive away from the atm, find a place to park, and check my acct. on my phone to see where it came from. I don't know.....

What I'm worried about is those living in tents. They don't have an address to receive funds. If they have a phone with a bank account they might be ok.

They could always print another 8 million. They could later take the notes out of circulation if needed to keep inflation down. Most of the money usually goes to the very rich anyway.

The average person would be locked up for decades if they kept the money. While white collar criminals keep the money,

That's sort of the entire reason why the smart person would have taken it and run. Obviously only a damn fool would have taken it and stayed put or, being honest here, not taken it and stayed put.
