Major windfall: Bank error makes East Texas man a trillionaire, at least online

TYLER, Texas - An East Texas man got quite the unexpected surprise when he checked the balance in his bank account. In fact, he did a double take when the balance read $4 trillion.

Reggie Theus said he could not believe his eyes. In fact he was so stunned, he logged in and out of the banking system eight times just to see if the money would still be there. It was.

But as you might guess, all good things come to an end and Theus' fortune disappeared as quickly as it came. Turns out, the banking error was due to a glitch during an online banking update.
