Woman temporarily becomes millionaire after account mix up

Woman temporarily becomes millionaire after account mix up

But she did the right thing by alerting TD Ameritrade about the snafu after receiving an out-of-nowhere voicemail from the financial institution.

For a brief moment, the 26-year-old Fleming was part of the millionaire club.

The girl immediately opened a banking application on mobile - and was incredibly surprised on her account was indeed more than a million, while it only has to be $50.

When she checked on the company's app, she saw that over $1 million had been added to her balance. "I could quit my job, do whatever I wanted to do, pay off my student loans".

The next day she called the financial Advisor and said that was probably a mistake.

"Being a millionaire really was a dream come true for 10 minutes", she said. "But that seemed like an opportunity that could lead me to federal prison, so it didn't seem worth it".

Hungary's Orban arrives in Israel for controversial visit
Orban proceeded to meet with Israeli President Reuven Rivlin before heading to visit Yad Vashem Holocaust Remembrance Center. Orban arrives later Wednesday and is due to hold talks with Netanyahu on Thursday, according to Israel's foreign ministry.

As for Fleming's account, the balance now stands at just $63.

She jokes that in her obituary she would like to be referred to as a "one-time millionaire".

Turns out the money was meant for a woman with the same name who lives in Florida.

"I'm now humbled from losing all my money".

TD Ameritrade confirmed the mix-up to the Globe and said it was quickly corrected after Fleming called to alert them.
