    bank called yesterday to tell me that UPS direct paycheck deposit was over a million dollars and it was very irregular.

    yes it is. it should of been 1118 dollars and change

    1. I guess I could call payroll.

    2. I could transfer funds to an offshore account and leave the country.

    3. ???????

    bank said they are putting hold on funds until it is straightened out.

    but it sure is nice to daydream. the local paper and radio station is going to do a story on it and maybe it will be picked up nationwide and the internet.

    this peak sure is exciting.

    They are just paying you in advance for the years of service you still have left with the company. :grouphug:

    Some serious OT. Are you in Feeders.

    What is the interest daily on that money? Is it legal to keep the interest?

  6. I'd have a jet chartered and be in the Caribbean before anybody knew what hit them.

    Kidding of course. But congrats on being a millionaire, even if it is only for a short time :)

    I sure would hate to pay your income taxes next year. You might want to make some quick investments in some IRA's before the end of year. Maybe a 5 year income averaging might help some.

    Be interesting to hear how much was withheld this week on the check statement posted on your account @ UPSERs

    It'd be tempting to print a hard copy for framing or conversation at Christmas parties this year.

    1/2 million with points on the Oakland Raiders beat SF 49ers. If they win maybe 5 million payout.

    I would smell SCAM if I got a phone call supposedly from my bank making such a claim.
