Volunteer Firefighter Discovers $8.2 Million In His Bank Account

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. A firefighter in Indiana went to the ATM. He expected his account to hold cash the government is sending Americans. But instead of $1,700, Charles Calvin found 8.2 million. He showed WGN his receipt documenting the fortune. Days later, the millions vanished, having appeared and disappeared without explanation. Easy come, easy go - although Calvin still does have that stimulus payment. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
