I my newspaper the other day :biggrin:.. a 39 year old woman had to rub her eyes when she looked at her account balance: an amount of 363 million Euros had been transferred to her account, underneath it said 'corrective transfer action', the money is being returned to her. Turned out that a cityworker had made a mistake when doing a social security transaction and instead of transferring 45 Euros to the bankaccount, the bankaccount number itself got transferred :eek:

363 million Euros..

Geeze, even I would have sent a nice thank you note, taken the money (assuming, naturally, that the government does not make mistakes) and taken off to some tropical island, after getting a new identity, of course. :tongue:

I know! 363 million euros should buy a nice new identity :wink:

But really, I thought stuff like that only happened in dreams or in movies :cool:
It's here, on the Metro frontpage http://www.clubmetro.nl/content/acrobat/amsterdam/NLAMS_20040415_A_Metro.pdf?PHPSESSID=584497aa96bc85f665314dca95798b82 [Broken]

Dutch is not my strength (but it looks funny for a german-talker :smile: )

Tja, where there are people working there are made mistakes. I've seen something similar in an association I'm a member of: one day the bank made a crediting of about 400'000 Swiss francs (maybe 300'000 Euro) onto the association account:smile: ...But they detected the mistake right the next day :frown:

Yes, thanks for the article :biggrin: Who knew speaking Dutch would have a use on an international physics forum one day?

With that kind of money...I would start thinking which country I wanted to take over :cool:
I believe it is possible to rent Lichtenstein for a few days. I wonder how much it would cost to buy it.
