Detroit-area resident Ronald Page was ballin' out of control for a brief period back in 2009 thanks to a major Bank of America mistake, but what seemed like amazing fortune now has him facing federal time. The wild ride began when a few area ATM's allowed Page to withdraw unlimited amounts of cash from them. No one man should have all that power.
Despite having just a few hundred dollars in his account, Page was able to withdraw $1.5 million from casino ATM's. However, two weeks and several transactions later, he had blown all of the money. Once Bank of America finally realized their error, they froze his account and the feds were on him.
Page was convicted of stealing bank funds by a federal judge, but prosecutors are recommending a 15-month sentence because the bank was partially responsible. He'll be sentenced next week, and DMX's words ring loud and clear: stop bein' greedy.
