LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI)- Imagine walking into a gas station to take out some cash from the ATM, and when you get your receipt it says you have over 6 million dollars in your account.
"I was able to get 20 dollars out and when it printed my receipt it showed the available balance and the ledger balance to be six million four-hundred dollars," said Robert Nikola who was surprised to see such a large amount of money in his account.
Nikola isn't the only one to have gotten a larger amount than expected. Charles Calvin from New Chicago, Indiana had 8 million dollars deposited into his account. Both seem to believe it has something to do with the stimulus checks the IRS began being deposited over the weekend.
"After I got this receipt naturally I was concerned,” added Nikola. “You hear about these scams and stuff you don't want to pull out any money let alone a gracious amount."
Even Nikola's bank didn't have an answer for why his statement showed as much money as it did.
"The bank had no explanation. In fact, they didn't even show it on their end," said Nikola.
Unlike the man from up north, Nikola has yet to receive his stimulus check, which as a full-time student is something he and his family are looking forward to.
"We are looking forward to that stimulus. It's definitely going to be a big help to us and everyone else," added Nikola.
As for the receipt itself, Nikola has plans to keep the memory alive.
"I told my wife I am going to frame the receipt since we will probably never have this much money in our bank account,” said Nikola.
We did reach out to an IRS spokesperson to see if they had any idea why this was happening, but we did not receive a response.
