Make sure you know what is in your bank before going on a shopping spree!!

Okay, so this sounds like common sense and most people would know how big their budget is but one 16 year old has been left with a £300 bill after believing he had £2million in his bank account. William, from Shropshire went on a shopping trip after checking his bank balance. When his mother heard about his 'luck', she phoned the bank and they said it was an error!!! How gutted would you be??? Lets hope he kept the tags on the items and kept the receipts so he can take some items back!!
