Man could face felony for not giving bank back money

A man could face felony charges for refusing to give back money to a Cape Girardeau (MO) bank that claims a teller inadvertently gave the customer too much money. Police tell the Southeast Missourian they are still investigating the incident that happened Friday at the Bank of Missouri, but charges of stealing more than $500 are being considered. So far, no charges have been filed.

Police spokesman Adam Glueck says the man came to the bank to exchange a large stack of mixed bills for a stack of $20 bills, but the teller accidentally gave him substantially more than he was owed. The error was discovered after the customer left.

When the bank and police contacted the man, he refused to turn over the excess amount, saying he was given the correct amount. (What do you think his reaction would be if he was short-changed?

If this is a feasible possibility, we should all make use of it when a teller mistakenly gives a member too much money. It would make members think twice about taking advantage of an honest mistake and prevent the teller from being disciplined or even dismissed!
