Look out for this Kiwi couple!


From today's ABC News Service:

"New Zealand police are searching for a couple believed to have fled the country with millions of dollars they received in a banking error.

Police will not reveal who the accidental millionaires are, but it is believed they ran a service station in the North Island city of Rotorua.

The couple applied to Westpac for a loan of about $8,000 and instead around $8 million was put into their account.

Police believe they may have fled New Zealand with most of the money and Interpol has been called in to help track them down.

Westpac is trying to work out what went wrong.

The bank is not saying much, only that this incident is a timely reminder that any money accidentally transferred into an account does not actually belong to the owner of the account."
