Boston Woman Becomes A Millionaire After Bank Mixes Up Her Identity
TD awarded a cool mill to the wrong “Ellen Fleming.”
It appears the $1.1 million deposit was intended for an “Ellen Fleming” living in the state of Florida. Upon hearing the voicemail left by a TD Ameritrade financial consultant, Fleming quickly checked her cell phone’s banking app to make sure it wasn’t a hoax. Indeed the figures were correct up to the point they were not. It was Ellen who inevitably made the first move to correct the mispronounced error. Had she not, it would have taken “Ellen Fleming” of Florida to call it in.
A bank account that I had $50 in had over $1 million dollars deposited into it. A banker made a HUGE mistake and confused me with another Ellen Fleming. I was rich for 10 mins & I can tell you, life was in fact better. I'm now humbled from loosing all my money. pic.twitter.com/skwlbUodTY
