Youth plans to use money for Morocco trip after cash was lodged into his account by mistake
A Kuwaiti man has refused to immediately return $202,066 (57,000 dinars) that was wrongly deposited in his bank, claiming it was "a gift from God", according to a report in Gulf News.
Nafel Azimi deposited a cheque for 57 dinars, but the bank clerk added three zeros, turning it into 57,000 dinars.
After seeing the error and having waiting for a period of time, Azimi reportedly went to another branch of the bank and withdrew the full amount.
Posting on Twitter, Nafel Azimi said he intends to use the money for a trip to Morocco.
The young Kuwaiti man said he has consulted legal advice, and does intend repay the amount, but over an extended period of time.
“It is a gift from God and I will use it,” he said.
