Dead Woman's Bank Account Overdrawn by $99 Billion

My guess is that the bank is not going to get the money.

Sheila Henderson of Chicago Heights, Illinois recently examined the bank account of her mother, who died last month. Was there any money in it that she could use to pay for funeral expenses? No, not at all. In fact, the bank informed her, the account was greatly in arrears. ABC 7 News reports:

"Your checking account has a balance of $99,999,999,545.90," an automated message can be heard saying.

When Henderson heard that mind-boggling number Wednesday, she said she almost had a heart attack.

"I was in shocked. I couldn't even speak. I called it again," Henderson said. […]

"I called my brother to listen to it and the first thing he said, 'You have been hiding all this money from me. Why did you do this? Come on. Let's go.' I was like, 'No, it says it is a negative amount on it," Henderson said.

Chase Bank says that it is investigating the issue.
