A New Zealand couple are reportedly on the run after $10 million – instead of $10,000 – was mistakenly deposited in their bank account.
The couple, who ran a Rotorua service station, were understood to have applied for a $10,000 overdraft from Westpac but instead had the larger amount mistakenly paid into their account.
Detective Senior Sergeant David Harvey said some of the money had since been withdrawn and the Asian couple had disappeared, the New Zealand Press Association reported.
Interpol had been called in to help find them, NZPA said.
The service station has closed its doors after going into receivership.
