Liz Kern, former EP anchor, fabulously wealthy (for a day)
From Fresno television station KFSN:
When Liz Kern checked her bank balance she got a surprise. A big surprise. A really big surprise. It showed a balance of more than 850 million dollars. Liz said, “I’m an almost billionaire. Not quite Bill Gates or Dell, but, I’m feeling up there. I’m feeling real good about this.”
Liz and her husband Robie just moved here from Texas. They are excited to be Fresno’s almost billionaire’s. She said, “I can’t quite spend it because it’s not really mine but I’m just looking at this going … well, what could I do with this money?”
They know it’s a mistake. The actual deposit was one thousand dollars. But they’ll admit to doing some daydreaming. “It’s like what would you do with all this money…go to Disneyland? No, I would buy Disneyland,” said Liz.
Liz went online to correct the problem. In an online chat with a bank representative, they assured her the problem would be taken care of in a few hours.
