The man acquitted of fraud after overdrawing $2.1 million from his bank account has revealed he is studying to become a criminal lawyer.
After a computer glitch allowed the welfare-recipient to live the high life for two years, Luke Moore, 25, told News Corp he is now surviving on two-minute noodles while living with his mother in Goulburn.
“I pull more chicks now with $20 in my pocket than I did when I was splashing the bank’s cash,” Mr Moore said.
“With age comes wisdom and confidence and I’ve learned money doesn’t buy everything – but it was great while it lasted.”
However, he does admit to missing some of the trappings of his former high-flying lifestyle: “The cocaine, the strippers and fast cars.”
Among Mr Moore’s big purchases were a $91,000 Aston Martin, a $168,948 Maserati, a framed Michael Jordan shirt and signed photos of Kylie Minogue, Michael Jackson and the presenters of Top Gear – all eventually seized by police.
“I had to give everything back and I now drive a shoebox Falcon but I’m happier this way as I’ve realised my family and friends are my biggest treasures,” he said.
