Indiana Man Waiting for Stimulus Payment Finds $8.2M in his Bank Account

According to Fox News one Indiana man who was withdrawing $200 dollars checked his receipt from the teller machine to find WAY more zeros then he expected. Charles Calvin who is a volunteer firefighter of New Chicago, Ind., told WGN 9 that it was during a routine withdrawal he had the shock of a lifetime. Now usually when you see your bank account you know exactly what to expect, so when he saw that he had $8.2 million dollars he was not surprisingly shocked.

“I went to the ATM at the Family Express, and once I withdrew $200 out of my account, I looked at the available balance that was still left in my account. Apparently, my account had $8.2 million in it. I’m like, ‘What in the world is going on here?'” Calvin told WGN.

Artify – Square

He said that he called the bank immediately to tell them what he found but by the time he called in they had rectified the mistake. He had been waiting for a $1700 stimulus payment but couldn’t believe when he saw the number on the receipt. Whether this was a blip from the ATM is unknown, but whatever the case the money was gone by the time they checked meaning if it was an error they caught it very quickly.

His bank did inform him that his $1,700 stimulus payment was deposited, although he’s still wondering if the mistake was a fluke or if taxpayers in the U.S. aren’t receiving the right amount. So it might be time to go check your bank accounts just in case.
