$100 million in your savings account? Mystery of dropped receipt in New York

Do you have $100 million (£62 million) in your savings account? Thought not.

But if you did, you would probably be careful not to leave a receipt behind at a cash point (ATM) showing the available balance of $99,864,731.94.

But that is exactly what someone has done in New York. The receipt was discovered hanging out of a Capital One ATM machine in East Hampton.

Wonder why they needed $400 cash. To buy breakfast, maybe? Note that it cost them $2.75 to take out the cash. Imagine how much it would cost to take out the whole lot!

Whew! That's a lot of money! This guy is probably the owner of a huge company. $100 million dollars? For real? I would like to see that receipt for myself. That guy is probably much richer than Richie Rich!
