Texas woman becomes millionaire for a day in bank error

Posted: Updated:

A Texas woman checked her account at Legacy Bank and saw a shocking balance.

She discovered her bank account had more than $37 million in it.

The woman immediately called her bank and asked about the recent deposit and they confirmed it was a clerical error and took back the money.

She’s hoping the bank will reward her for her honesty.

"A thank you reward would be a little bit good. You know? Just for being a good customer and notifying them as soon as possible," she said.

Legacy Bank blames the error on the exchange rate and a clerk manually inputting foreign currency.
