A coupe who own a small business in Rotorua in New Zealand applied to the Westpac bank for a $10,000 overdraft.

The bank deposited $7.8 million into their account.

Not surprisingly, the couple took as much of the money as they could and cleared off.

Detective Senior Sergeant David Harvey has called on Interpol to help track the couple down. “The individuals associated with this account are believed to have left New Zealand and police are working through Interpol to locate those individuals,” he said.

Stealing other people’s money is a bad thing.

Nonetheless I wish them well. And I hope Westpac shareholders ask some difficult questions.
