A phone recording told Liz Kern her latest bank transaction had been for more than she expected. It started to say "On July 13... a credit for $850 million, $900 thousand..."

Liz and her husband Robie just moved from Texas. They knew the whole thing was a mistake, but that did not stop them from daydreaming.

"It's like 'What would you do with all this money? Go to Disneyland?' No, I would buy Disneyland," said Liz.

She actually deposited $1,000 and thinks a bank teller entered part of her account number in with the deposit. The situation has now been corrected.
