$1.8 million of stolen cash spent playing iPhone game
SPORTS cars? A new helicopter maybe? What would you spend $8 million of stolen money on?
An American accounts manager named Kevin Lee Co ripped the cash from his employer, spending it on luxury vehicles, a golf club membership and season tickets to see his favourite teams.
He also spent almost a quarter of it playing "Game of War" on his phone.
That's right, so addictive was the game that he poured $1.8 million into in-app purchases.
The game allows you to spend about $160 to buy "28000 gold" in the game.
It's understood that as you reach the higher levels of the game, spending real-life cash is one of the key ways to remain competitive.
Lee Co pleaded guilty to wire fraud and one count of money laundering.
He must now repay the US$6 million and faces a maximum of 20 years in prison.
