Ronald Page seemingly had it made when Bank of America unintentionally changed his account status, allowing the 55-year-old man to make unlimited ATM cash overdraft withdrawals.
But ABC News reports that Page, who in reality had only $300 in his checking account, used the accidental loophole to withdraw more than $1.5 million—losing it all on gambling.
And even worse for Page, the U.S. Attorney's Office in Detroit says he is now facing 15 months in prison after pleading guilty to charges of theft of bank funds, $1,543,104 in total between December 1, 2008 and May 31, 2009.
The day the Bank of America glitch went into effect, Page reportedly withdrew $312,000 from ATMs at the Greektown Casino in Detroit and an additional $51,727 from the MGM Grand Casino. Bank of America placed a hold on his account 17 days later, but he had already withdrawn $1.5 million by that point.
Man accidentally gets $1.5 million from ATM then gambles it all away

So wait. He gets jail time for spending 1.5 million of money that he wasn't his...yet many Wall Street/Big Bank cronies who spent billions that wasn't theirs and made risky bets on our economy haven't been prosecuted at all? This guy was a complete idiot to say the least however.
Ain't it great to think about it like that? But they were just making business decisions right? That makes it "better."

If not the first few thousand than the first million at least
You'd think he'd come to the realization after losing the first few thousand that he was terrible at gambling.

I like how this one black guy manager at my nearest KFC rejected the chicken and told the employees to make me some new chicken. He understood how us black folks like our friend chicken fresh and not hard.
I love me some fried food. I eat friend food all the time and I'm still super skinny. I can eat all the friend chicken and other unhealthy foods never getting fat.

I have to call my credit card company if I plan on making a big purchase out of state because they will often block the purchase for "unusual activity" if I don't call customer service, yet some broke guy can withdraw over a quarter million dollars in a single day and it goes unnoticed for over two weeks???

Meh if all he had was $300 and homeless it couldn't have hurt to try and win and repay. Lol.

Doubt it. He withdrew all the money from ATMs inside the casinos and then there's the fact that casinos have cameras EVERYWHERE. I'm sure they have just hours and hours of videotape of him losing all that money. It would be very easy to determine if he spent it all or not.
I bet that he has at least $500,000 hidden somewhere. Using the casino story as a coverup.
My only real question now is, was he ever ahead at one point lol?
