Buying a house is a big decision and almost always an extremely expensive affair - it is all the more important that everything is planned in detail, especially from a financial point of view. Financing was apparently not the problem for a couple from Australia, they were able to raise the 750,000 Australian dollars (equivalent to almost 500,000 euros) for their dream house. However, the two made an extremely annoying mistake: they transferred the entire amount to the wrong account.
Instead of sending the sum to the Commonwealth Bank account, they accidentally sent the money to a stranger named Abdel Ghadia, Australian media reports. The error itself is annoying enough, but the home buyers also had bad luck with the recipient. The 24-year-old Ghadia did not think about clearing up the mistake, but spent the money without restraint.
When he was arrested, Ghadia denied having anything to do with the money. He later admitted everything, the money just "appeared" in his account: "I had no idea how it got there, I told the bank, but then I spent it." In court, he pleaded guilty to trafficking in the proceeds of crime. The verdict is expected in early December.
