Can you imagine logging into your bank account and see a balance of over NZ$10m!!! I think I would have had a heart attack

Happened to a friend of mine, she reported it to the bank immediately. Apparently they had been upgrading their computer system and someone pushed a few wrong buttons.

There was a man in the US who deposited a $95,000 cheque and the bank failed to pull the funds in time so, under state law, he was entitled to those funds as "cleared".
