According to the Daily Mail, a Florida woman has received nearly $ 1 billion in her bank account and is struggling to pay it back.
Reports say Julia Yonkowski went to withdraw $ 20 from her local Chase Bank. Before attempting the withdrawal, she checked her balance and realized that she had racks, on racks, on racks for the sum of a billion dollars. Someone apparently deposited $ 999,985,855.94 into their account.
While most people would probably have been excited, Julia said she was horrified. “Oh my God, I was horrified. I know most people would think they won the lottery, but I was horrified, ”she said.
Julia is adamant that she doesn’t want to have to pay back the money because it’s not hers. “I know I read stories about people who took the money or took the money out and then they had to pay it back and I wouldn’t do it anyway because it’s not my money, ”she said.
She also said that since the money was deposited into her account, she had tried to contact the branch to return the money but had not received any help.
“I just can’t pass. I am blocked by their automated system and cannot reach anyone, ”she said.
It’s unclear what prompted Julia to become a billionaire, but Julia is hopeful that the money will be withdrawn as soon as possible.
