Man Becomes Unexpected Trillionaire
TYLER, Tx. (WKRC) -- An east Texas man makes an unexpected discovery when he checks the balance in his bank account.
He found there was a lot more money in it than he expected, more than four trillion dollars in fact. Reggie Theus says he was so stunned, he logged in and out of the banking system eight times just to see if the money would still be there. And it was, every time!
"I was definitely surprised when I looked at my account and saw that much money in there. I looked it up and there's never been a trillionaire before, so, technically, I may be the first ever."
But all good things must come to an end. Turns out, the banking error was due to a glitch during an online banking update.
