and i mean WAYYYYY too much, i went in to check my position and found some extra zeros - it's obviously a glitch and for the last few hours i've been talking to Legal Boi and everyone else i know to see if there was some way i could transfer this money to an offshore account without ending up in jail - general consensus was that there was no way i would get away with it because as soon as i started transfering it, even if i did it in *small* amounts of say $200,000 at a time, that would be enough to flag a supervisor - there's no point in trying to transfer it to my main Ameritrade account coz they'll just give it back to etrade. We thought about using the account balance and making a series of complicated trades on stocks and shit but again, there's no point, etrade will soon realize that something is not right, and worse, say i was to purchase a millions worth of say biotech stock, and the price was to move against me, i'd be liable for the loss on that trade even thou i purchased it with 'stolen' money so to speak - and herein lies the problem, although i did nothing illegal or otherwise to 'aquire' this money, i know full well it's not mine and the moment i knowingly try to transfer it or use it, in addition to theft, i'd be charged with illegal wire transfers, fraud, breaking security laws, blah - anyways, we've looked at all the angles and there is no way i'm gonna get away with it, i might get away with a hundred grand or 2, but that would mean having to go on the run like a criminal and it just aint worth it - anyways, i've e-mailed etrade and informed them of the situation *sigh*

2 bad Car Key Boi. Hey if you are nice they might give you like a $1000 reward for being nice. But they will probably just speak to you like shit, and make you feel like its your fault.

Bummer. But at least Legal Boi kept you from doing anything that would get you tossed in the pokey.

well, i already knew the legal implications before i spoke to Legal Boi - i called him and the others to pool their ideas and no matter what we came up with, there was no way i could transfer such a large sum - don't get me wrong, if it was possible, i would have done it - we're talking a LOT of money griff - i'll do a screenshot of my account page and i'll upload it to carkeyboi.com

I think for $49 million I would have tried a scheme and gone on the run. You can stay on the run for a long time with $49 million.

But all is not lost, you should sue them, claiming that for a few minutes at least, you thought you were filthy rich, and now that you realized it was a mistake, your life is ruined and you cannot work or function or anything, and ask for a bunch of damages. You might get a nuisance settlement in the mid-5 figures at least. I would try it!
