Boston Woman Temporarily Becomes a Millionaire
A million dollars appears in your bank account, what would you do? You may be surprised by how a Boston woman handled it.
Imagine if a million dollars was just suddenly in your bank account.
It apparently really happened to 26-year-old Ellen Fleming from Boston.
She told the Associated Press that she received a voicemail from a TD Ameritrade financial consultant on Wednesday letting her know a deposit had been made to her account.
Thinking it was the $50 she deposited herself a few months ago, she checked her account only to be blown away by the $1.1 million she found sitting there.
I think I would have been completely floored as well.
And then she did something that you may not expect from a 26-year-old. She called the consultant back and told them there must have been a mistake.
Turns out there was.
Seems a woman in Florida with the same name should have been getting the money, not the young lady from Boston.
Fleming said she had momentarily considered quitting her job and paying off her student loans with the win-fall and I suppose it's lucky for her she didn't do that.
I don't think the million would have gotten her as far as she thought it would and she probably would have just ended up looking for another job anyway.
Still momentary millionaire is a fun claim to fame to have.
