Unemployed man wakes up, discovers he’s £1.2 million overdrawn

Tyler Daniels, from Corringham in Essex, woke up one morning and checked his account balance. He was expecting to have a balance of almost a pound (something most students would be jealous of) but instead saw that he'd somehow managed to spend £1,199,998.85 and was now severely overdrawn.

The unemployed 21-year-old was shocked, as he had no overdraft facility on his account. And certainly not one that was generous enough to let him withdraw £1.2million in one go.


"I woke up to my current account overdrawn by almost 1.2 million," he wrote on Facebook.


Tyler now has to rely on money lent to him by his grandad whilst Barclays investigate the complaint. Tyler wrote on Facebook that his accounts had been blocked following the mysterious £1.2million withdrawal:

"I have been on the phone to Barclays for over 2 hours talking to various departments including the fraud department."

"I went to my local Barclays branch to take cash out my savings account to live on whilst my current account was suspended."

"I was then told in branch that I couldn’t take cash out my savings account as Barclays has blocked all my accounts."

A Barclays spokesman told Mail Online:

"From the detail included in the mini statement, it is evident that the transactions could only have been made using login security information for the mobile banking app."

"We are carrying out a thorough investigation."
