Aussie man applauded for returning $58m accidentally transferred to his bank account

An Australian woman has taken to social media to share the fleeting moment her boyfriend unwittingly became a multi-millionaire.

Jess Davis woke up on Monday morning ready to start another work week when her boyfriend checked his phone and found $58m had been deposited into his bank account.

“My boyfriend woke up with 58m dollars of someone else’s money in his bank account this morning,” Ms Davis tweeted.

She expressed disappointment over her boyfriend’s honest character that led him to call the bank and report the error immediately.

“And rather than take the money and run, he opted to call the bank and tell them of the error,” she said.

“We could be living on our own island somewhere by now. Sad.”

The tweet garnered more than 500 comments ranging across the full spectrum of jealousy to impressed.

“Cayman Islands that sh*t, Jess,” Shalailah Medhora said.

“Surely cashing out a little finders fee before alerting them would be reasonable” wrote Matt Bevan.

“Turns out my boyfriend is not as badarse as I thought he was,” Ms Davis replied.

“He’s either the best boyfriend or the worst boyfriend,” one user wrote.

“WHAT the hell Jess, like everyone’s saying, really deserves a cool million for his honesty here,” another said.

“Is there a finder’s fee? Surely a cheeky one per cent to return it to its rightful owner wouldn’t be missed?” a third added.

Ms Davis added that her boyfriend wanted to clarify for her gobsmacked followers that the money was not in liquid cash.

“He would like me to clarify that it’s not 58 mill in liquid cash but a bunch of accounts worth 58 mill that he’s now got control over and therefore much harder to steal away with,” she said.

“He doesn’t want his good name as a Bandidos besmirched.”
