Money issues can often affect a couple, and this one is sure to make the husband cringe, as his wife mistakenly transferred $41,000 to a stranger instead of her husband.

The woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, accidentally sent the $1,580 she earns monthly as a hairdresser to a stranger, as she was off on the bank account number by one digit.

By setting up automatic payment, the money was sent monthly to the stranger, who ended up spending the money.

The couple somehow did not realize what had happened until two years after the fact.

This is what happens when you don’t monitor your account activity. Missing nearly $1,600 every month is not something that should go unnoticed.
