Ac­ci­den­tal mil­lion­aire

Townsville Bulletin - - World Snapshot -

THE Kiwi woman at the cen­tre of a fa­mous mul­ti­mil­lion dol­lar bank­ing blun­der has faced court pro­fess­ing her in­no­cence to new charges. Kara Hur­ring, 32, is one half of the so-called ‘‘ ac­ci­den­tal mil­lion­aires’’, a cou­ple that skipped New Zealand in 2009 af­ter a bank mis­tak­enly trans­ferred NZ$ 10 mil­lion into their ac­count. West­pac had meant to in­creaseon the cou­ple’s over­draft to NZ$ 100,000 but a dec­i­mal point slip-up granted them 100 times more.
