How’s that now?

Hey, am I the only one that is a little bit worried that PNC Bank would make an idiot mistake such as this?

He is accused of depositing the first check, for $25.2 million, the afternoon of April 24 at a drive-through window at PNC’s branch in Eatontown after convincing bank personnel that the closed account was being reopened and that funds to cover the check were being wired, the complaint said.

I mean, taking someone’s word that they will cover a $25 million check? How’s that now? I can’t even convince the bank to let me have credit for an entire $1,600 check I deposit via the ATM until the check clears, yet this dude is allowed to do it with a $25 million check? He must be hot as hell.

PNC got what it deserved. I wonder how many people in the Eatontown branch lost their jobs over this one?

    The funniest part of the story is it was at the drive thru window…could u imagine the tellers face when she got the tube with the deposit ticket?

    Like I said, “hot as hell.” That is the only way I can figure he convinced them it was all cool.

    I think if I was playing bank with a three year old and told the three year old “teller” that I wanted to deposit a check for $25 million and that I promised the check would clear, the three year old teller would be like, “Pssh. Please. Nice try.”
