    teacher's shock at his $9.8bn bank balance

    An Indian teacher got the shock of his life when he checked his bank account online and found 490bn rupees ($9.8bn).

    Parijat Saha expected his balance to be $200 and could not believe his eyes - but a check at an ATM confirmed his billionaire status, on paper at least.

    The honest Mr Saha rang the State Bank of India (SBI) to point out the error.

    haha, leave it in the account for 2 days then report it, live off that 2 day interest :) (if you get to keep the interest on it that is)

    But if that happened to me, i think that would put me in hospital, seeeing all that money and then it getting taken from me. Would definatly report it though

    So 1 indian was honest, that means none of them are scammers?

    It's a statistical fact that an immense ammount of scammer are from India.

    1 smart american doesn't change the fact that america... (fill it in yourself).

    Stupid statement! Considering the population is in the billions, of course some will be scammers.

    oxonbeef didn't say there is no scammer from india. Obviously there are a lot of indian scammers but there are a lot of honest indians too.

    While im not indian myself but I know how it feels to be generalized. I am proud to say i have a lot of indian friends just like I do have a lot of moslem friends and I can easily differ them from fanatics that bombed the western countries.

    Generalization is never good but it happens all the time.

    Statistics don't lie. Next!

    Waiting for the "racism!" callers, hint: statistics have nothing to do with racism.

    There are scammers in every country...and good people as well.
    As for the money, I would take it and buy a major (multi-billions $$) company so I could repay that money . But the bank would see and stop that first...

    Some of the best online friends that I have are from India. Not only friends, partners and clients also.

    I personally think that it's a numbers game. The more people you have in your country, the more scammers you have.

    I've been scammed by more Indians on my online adventures more than I have by any other race...however I still don't think it's a racial thing. It just depends on the person.

    Nobody is calling you a racist. I do find it ironic though that you post a pic of a sheep, while you are the one blindly following the "statistics".

    Not a racist, just a moron.

    This incident can happen in any part of the world. Rare but it happens. That's why it made it to the news.

    It's also a fact that India just like China have over a couple of billion people so the numbers become relative. But again this happen on rare occasions everywhere.

    Wtf "a statistical fact". You need to grow up i guess. if some bunch of people scam you doesn't means all are scammers.

    Its all about person to person no matter where he is from.

    This news has nothing to do with the thread title and I didn't like it either. I'm not even sure who think Indians are scammers? You should know India is the #1 IT hub on the entire globe. There is no need of such a discussion and I can see where this thread is going.

    Why on the earth we need to prove Indians ain't scammers by posting such an odd thread title which have nothing to do with the actual story.

    To all the guys taking the thread in a racism mode STOP it now! Scammers are everywhere they should not be identified by race rather than by their work ethics.

    No offense to anyone.

    I was scammed by an American, should I call all Americans scammers? No of course not! Scammers are lowlives and they can be from anywhere. Let them rot in hell.
