“It was unbelievable,” the Louisiana man told the local station WVLA-TV. “I’ve never seen so many zeros.” Thanks to that fifty billion dollars, he was the 25th richest man in the world for four days.

The real estate expert immediately began to fantasize about what he could buy with the money, from a shiny car to a large villa. “I don’t know anyone with that much money,” said the father of two in an interview with FOX9. “But I did wonder where all those billions suddenly came from.”

“I realized very well that the money was actually not mine and I therefore had no right to spend those billions. Unless, for example, it was an inheritance from a rich uncle. But it was very clear that the money had to be returned to its rightful owner.”

Darren James, who also works part-time for the police, knew it would be a criminal offense to keep the money. In 2019, a Pennsylvania couple was still being prosecuted after accidentally receiving and spending $120,000 in their bank account.

Darren James immediately contacted his bank, Chase, to rectify the mistake. The money is now no longer in his account, the bank has never said who owns the money or what exactly went wrong.
