Ruth Balloon was just finishing up her shift at Dallas store Roma Boots when she checked her bank account and discovered the surprise.
“I was like, ‘Wow, we have a lot of money!’” Balloon recalled to KTVT. “I hoped someone really gifted us with that $37 million.”
The article goes on to state the following:
Balloon excitedly phoned her husband to tell him about the unexpected windfall. He called the bank, LegacyTexas Bank, to inquire about the deposit, only to find out that it was all one big mix-up. The money was quickly removed.
LegacyTexas Bank said the error would have been found and reversed even if it hadn’t been reported by the honest couple. They explained the error in a statement:
“Due to the fluctuation in exchange rates, all foreign currency transactions must be manually entered into our system through our back office. When our client’s deposit was being keyed in, our representative entered her account number into the amount field by mistake.”
