The family of Darren James were surprised after his wife’s bank account was credited with approximately KSh 5 trillion.
According to the 47-year-old family man, his wife called him and requested to see him before she informed him of the surprising news.
The woman informed her husband of the millions deposited in her account and later showed him the bank balance on her phone.
Shocked and lost of words, James quickly called the bank and informed them about the strange deposit.
“It was crazy just to see what it looks like because I’ve never seen that many zeros in my life. I wasn’t going to keep it,” James said.
However, James noted that they had considered the possibility of a rich relative leaving them the money in inheritance, but they could not think of anyone in their offspring who could have such an amount of money.
“We knew it wasn’t ours. We didn’t earn it, so we couldn’t do anything with it,” he added.
The bank corrected the error four days later.
Despite the rectification, the family expressed concern that their bank account could be compromised.
