In Germany, an employee of the German banks made one of its clients, a retiree, happy, VERY happy. He transferred to that guy’s account… 222,222,222.22 Euros. The transaction was carried out by chance because the operator simply fell asleep on the job, holding down the number 2.
As it turned out, the bank employee had to transfer to the account just of 62.4 Euros. However, while processing the transaction, the man fell asleep for a few moments and did not notice a little mistake.
Operator error very soon was found out, and the transaction was canceled, to the sorrow of “happy” retiree. Never the less, he was a millioner, at least for a little while 🙂
