A woman was set to buy supplies for her business when she accidentally paid the money into the wrong account.
Palm Lakes resident Dorina Bowes paid over R33 000 to the South African Breweries on 12 June, however, a couple of days later she was notified that the stock would not be delivered because she failed to make a payment.
Confused, Bowes investigated why they did not receive her payment and it was then when she realised she had deposited the money into the wrong account.
Bowes contacted the her bank but was told that they could not simply reverse the payment without proof that it was an error, North Coast Courier reported.

Luckily for Bowes, she paid her money into the account of an honest man - Achidanandan Reddy from Shakaskraal.
A stressed Bowes met up with Reddy at the Ballito Lifestyle Centre last weekend and he immediately paid back her money.
Briefly.co.za gathered Reddy had the money with him for a while but he did not use a cent of it - paying back the entire R33 000.
“I mean, we had never met before but he manged to keep the money for weeks and transferred it back to me, all of it. I am so happy that in this day and age, we still have people like him,” said Bowes.
