- Kelyn Spadoni, 33, has been arrested after refusing to return the $1.2 million accidentally deposited into her account.
- Charles Schwab & Co. quickly contacted the sheriff’s office dispatcher but repeatedly failed.
- Authorities have pointed out that Spadoni “has no legal claim” to the money because it was merely “an accounting error.”
Kelyn Spadoni ended up getting arrested last Wednesday, April 7, after she allegedly refused to return over $1.2 million which has been deposited into her account by accident.
According to reports, the 33-year-old Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office employee has already been fired from her job following her arrest. She is now facing theft charges valued over $25,000, bank fraud, and illegal transmission of monetary funds.
Apparently, a clerical error by multinational financial services firm Charles Schwab & Co. led to the mistake after they deposited more than $1.2 million into Spadoni’s brokerage account when they only intended to transfer around $82.
The bank tried to retrieve the funds but failed to do so as it was no longer available. As it turns out, Spadoni immediately transmitted the money into a different account and allegedly used some of them to buy a house and a car. Naturally, Charles Schwab made multiple efforts to get in touch with Spadoni but were unsuccessful in retrieving the funds.
Sheriff’s spokesman Capt. Jason Rivarde said:
“It’s not her money. She has no legal claim to that money. Even if it was put in there by mistake. It was an accounting error.”
He further added:
“If someone accidentally puts an extra zero on a utility payment, they would want that money returned or credited to them. This is no different.”
Spadoni is currently being detained at the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center with a $5,000 bond. As of this writing, around 75% of the money has been reclaimed.
Spadoni has been a sheriff’s office 911 dispatcher for the past 4 and 1/2 years.
