    Bet you wish your ATM receipt looked like this

    Bet you wish your ATM receipt looked like this: 'Hedge fund manager' drops slip showing $100 million bank balance
    By DANIEL BATES

    It's a fair bet that he wasn’t as bothered by the £1.75 fee for withdrawing his cash as us mere mortals might have been.
    This chap had $100million (£62million) in his account – and we know because he left the receipt at the machine.
    The unidentified Wall St banker took out $400 (£250) but forgot the slip, which showed his balance was $99,864,731.94.
    The piece of paper was picked up by a member of the public who passed it on to a financial blogger who posted it on the internet.




    In the black: The receipt shows a very healthy bank balance, but the owner still has to stump up the $2.75 charge
    What sort of person keeps such a sum in a low interest account is open to question.


    But last night hedge fund manager David Tepper was forced to deny it was him after he was named by a number of websites.
    He is rich enough to have several such accounts if he really wanted, having made $4.3billion (£2.7billion) betting against the financial crisis of 2009. The withdrawal took place at a Capital One bank in the Hamptons in New York, the millionaires’ playground of Wall St executives and celebrities.
    Below the date and time of 10.14pm on June 18 there is the amount drawn out and the account balance – plus an ATM fee of $2.75 (£1.75).

    google fake atm receipts, you can buy 50 of these for around $15 as "random" pieces of paper to scribble your number down when you meet a girl. Guaranteed a shag when she turns the paper over...

    Some kind of joke IMO.
    I did find a bank statement that had over a million US dollars in it once.
    It was near a blown over garbage can belonging to a man who lived in a nearby row house, that was worth about $30k.
    But at least it was an interest bearing account (although small interest)
