Darren James and his family suddenly became billionaires when Chase Bank accidentally deposited $50 billion dollars into their account.
The wife showed her husband the balance on their account, which showed just a few more zeroes than usual.
"It was a great feeling while it was there to see that many zeroes in your account," James said, "It was pretty neat to see what it looked like."
Yeah. I'll bet.
The bank corrected the mistake, but not until 4 days after they first reported the huge deposit. The James family is officially winning the contest for Most Self-Control for not going on a huge spending spree with that kind of money in the bank.
"We knew it wasn't ours. We didn't earn it, so we couldn't do anything with it," James said.
Chase Bank said that the deposit was due to a system glitch...I'm still waiting on that kind of glitch to happen to me.
When asked what he would have done if the money was real, James said he would build a Children's Hospital to serve families in the Baton Rouge area.
