Trillion Dollar Mistake: Some BancorpSouth customers saw $4 Trillion in their accounts due to error

Others had as much as $40 Trillion

(WTVA) Did you check your bank account balance Wednesday morning? Some BancorpSouth bankers in Mississippi found a huge mistake, in their favor.

While some customers were greeted to more than $4 Trillion in their accounts, others had as much as $40 Trillion.

According to BancorpSouth's Senior Vice President of Corporate Communications Randy Burchfield, the error was a display mistake and those funds were never available to customers.

Burchfield says, "BancorpSouth online banking customers' deposit account balances reflected overstated balance totals for a short period of time this morning before being corrected. This was a system display issue and did not reflect the actual account balance available to those customers."
