Bank Clerk Managed to Accidentally Transfer €222,222,222.22 In His Sleep

By Chris Mills on at

Allegedly, a bank clerk in Germany was so zonked he passed out at his desk with his finger on the 2 key, which caused him to accidentally transfer 222 million euros between some random accounts, when he was meant to be moving fifty quid. The kicker? His supervisor didn't see anything wrong with it.

Unsurprisingly, the supervisor was fired for being utterly terrible at supervising; but on appeal she managed to win her job back, on the basis she only had a few seconds to check transactions, which is...reassuring. [The Independent]
