NEW YORK (Reuters) - A New York man who discovered that millions of dollars had mysteriously appeared in his bank account, and withdrew more than $2 million, has been arrested on charges of grand larceny, prosecutors said on Wednesday.
ADVERTISEMENT

Benjamin Lovell, 48, pleaded innocent on Tuesday to charges that he withdrew money from a Commerce Bank account that had been opened by someone with the same name, prosecutors said.

The account belonged to Woodlawn Trustees Inc, a Delaware property management company, and was listed under the name of its finance director, who is also named Benjamin Lovell, court papers said.

Lovell had just $800 in his own Commerce Bank account when he went to make a deposit, but a teller, mistaking the Woodlawn account for Lovell's personal account, told him that his account contained more than $5 million, prosecutors said.

Lovell made multiple withdrawals even though he knew that the money was not his, prosecutors said. He used the money to buy jewelry for his girlfriend and to make several investments, they said.

Commerce Bank and Woodlawn Trustees did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The Legal Aid attorney representing Lovell could not be reached for comment either.

Lovell is being held on $3 million bail. He faces up to 25 years behind bars if convicted, prosecutors said.

Well wouldn't that fall under that whole possesion is 9/10th of the law deal. Its his bank account so its his money. I mean if the find drugs in your car and you say well they weren't mine so I didn't want to touch them to throw them out or report saying I found these drugs in my car and they aren't mine they are still going to arrest you like if they are your right? What if he never knew it was in there and just started buying stuff at random, and says he kept buying because his card kept being accepted?

I'd have transferred it all to a savings account and let it build interest. You know they'll find it eventually, but how long will it take them and how much interest will you have accrued That is in my dream world of course.

Fact of the matter is he KNEW what was in there at the time when the bank teller told him what was in there and he should of corrected her. There isn't any what IF unfortunately. Its the tellers fault and it's not like there was some kind of computer error or something. He should of been honest and fessed up

I don't think she put the money in there, i think it was already in there , and when he went to the bank for whatever reason it was she told him that you have amount and he made multiple withdraws from that account without explaining to her that wasn't his account. Not really sure how they check security at that bank but both the teller and customer need to be punished.

I mean come on he wouldn't have to go through this ordeal if he would of been upfront about it. Greed got the best of him.

If he has millions in there in the beginning then he couldn't be charged for grand larceny. He only had $800 and knew there was a mistake and took advantage of it. Ignorant is not an excuse.
