    Help! I don't have an Overdraft but gone Overdrawn a lot!! (Gambling)

    Help! I don't have an Overdraft but gone Overdrawn a lot!! (Gambling) 9th May 13 at 12:42 AM

    I've got myself in a huge mess. I don't have an overdraft facility but I have gone severely over and I'm really anxious and worried about what is going to happen to me.

    I am registered to a betting site using PayPal, when I deposit it takes 2-3 days to come out of my Bank Account because it takes quite a while but I get the funds credited to my Betting Account instantly. I had 100 in my Bank Account but deposited it to a Betting Account in a desperate attempt to lose money. I lost my 100 and checked my Bank Account and realised it had not came out. I then deposited a further 100 in a desperate attempt to win my 100 back which also lost and I proceeded to do this a few times over until I lost 700!!

    I really don't know what came over me, I had a moment of madness and now my Natwest Bank Account is due to go -600 Overdrawn even though I don't have an Overdraft Facility. What is going to happen to me and my Bank Account? Can I go to Prison for using Bank Funds that don't belong to me? Will my bank send debt collectors? I'm in a major panic and literally shaking and trembling in fear.

    I realise I was a complete idiot to do what I did, I have deleted my Betting Account and have learnt my lesson and will never ever return to anything similar as long as I live.

    Any advice would be appreciated.
