Ark. woman awakes to $4 trillion bank balance

Posted: Updated:

FORT SMITH, Ark. (AP) - For just one brief moment, Molly Layes was a trillionaire.

The Fort Smith woman awoke Tuesday and saw that her online bank balance was at $4,040,404,040,404.04 - or more than $4 trillion. Layes says she thought it was either her lucky day - or that someone was going to get in trouble.

She contacted her local BancorpSouth branch and the mistake was quickly corrected.

BancorpSouth tells the Southwest Times Record (http://bit.ly/GB58oa ) that a "system display issue" caused inaccurately high account balances for some online customers. The problem has since been corrected.

BancorpSouth is headquartered in Tupelo, Miss., and has 292 locations in the South.
