Instead of filing the bank, they bought an SUV, two quads, a camper van, a race car and even gave away $15,000 (£13,000) to friends.

When the mistake was discovered three weeks later, the couple had already spent around $107,000 (£87,000).

Employees at BB&T Bank contacted Tiffany – but she reportedly told them she had used the money to pay bills.

She said they were working out a repayment plan but stopped communicating after two phone calls – prompting the bank to call the police.

Before the money was accidentally sent to them instead of investment firm Dimension Covington Investment, they only had $1,121 (£1,044) in their account

Funds were deposited on May 31st, 2019 and withdrawn by June 20th.

When investigators spoke to the couple in July, “both admitted knowing the money they misplaced didn’t belong to them, but they spent it anyway,” according to State Police Officer Aaron Brown.

A neighbor of the couple told local broadcaster WNEP-TV at the time: “It’s kind of shocking.

“With all the procedures the bank has in place, verification and double verification and triple verification, no one gets away with this stuff.”

A man at the couple’s home, posing as Robert’s father, said: “I have no idea.

“I don’t even know what’s going on. I am only the father.”

BB&T Bank told CNN: “While we cannot comment on the specifics of this issue due to our customers’ privacy practices, we are always working as quickly as possible to resolve any issues affecting our customers.”

It comes after a mum was stunned to find £6million in her bank account before plummeting into a luxury home and helping her family.

But the company accidentally entered an account number in the field meant to be a cash amount.

Ms. Manivel, from Melbourne, Australia, then spent a large chunk on a plush house and sent the rest to other accounts.

She had spent £800,000 on a five bedroom, four bathroom house as a ‘gift’ for her sister Thilagavathy Gangadory.

The remainder of the unduly paid payment was then split between six other people, including her daughter and sister.
