Scarborough builder Steven Burke was in court this week after going on a spending spree with £44,000 he was paid in error.
Burke had the windfall deposited into his bank account when bosses at Croft Farm Construction pressed the wrong keys while making a £446 transfer.
His shopping trip lasted for six weeks, and included jewellery, drugs and a new car, he also gambled away £12,600 on the day he received the money.
He spent £30,000 before the rest of the money was retrieved by the bank, and was this week given a four-month suspended jail sentence and 100 hours of unpaid work.
The builder's lucky jackpot got us thinking… what other weird and wonderful things have people found where they shouldn't be?
