A Boston Woman Became A Millionaire Last Week For 10 Minutes
I've always wondered what it would be like to be a millionaire. I can only imagine what it would be like to walk onto a car lot and drive off in my dream car...after paying cash. Who hasn't thought about living in a home straight out of a magazine...or taking a vacation, and sparing no expenses?
Well for ten minutes last week, I'm sure all of those thoughts and more went through a Boston woman's head. Ellen Fleming told The Boston Globe a case of mistaken identity made her a millionaire at 1:50 p.m. on Wednesday, after someone accidentally transferred the money to her TD Ameritrade account. But as quickly as it arrived, the cash disappeared. By 2 p.m. Ellen's account was back to it's previous balance...$63.
Thankfully the Boston Ellen Fleming has a sense of humor about the mix-up. She tweeted, “Please make sure that in my obituary, I am referred to as ‘One-time millionaire, Ellen Fleming."
