When I was an E1 (making $377/paycheck) I got overpaid $400+, I was afraid to spend it but they never caught it. What would the army do if they paid me $150,000 and I paid off my mortgage and car loan with it?

I was once overpaid by 3K. When they caught it, they pulled me into a meeting and asked if I still had the money. I smiled and said "No, I spent it on booze and hookers for my squad." No one laughed.............

At the current CD rates, $135,000 at 3% average. He made around $4000 total or roughly around $340 a month.

One year the Finance people had me on my witholding as single with 14 dependents. When I caught it which was about two months before the end of the year, I had them fix it but I owed a lot of tax that year instead of getting a return!!! At least I was a lowly Corporal at the time so wasn't making a lot anyway which saved my butt. I think I owed about 500 dollars instead of getting 800 or so back.....ouch! That hurt in those days!
