Man Mistakenly Gets Check for Two Million
A Utah man was a Millionaire just long enough for his conscious to catch us with him. A Utah department of Commerce typing error put his name on a huge check for over two-million dollars. But you can't put a price on what Jerry Mika from Draper did next.
His mane and address are on the check. It's real but it's wrong. The check was supposed to be written for fifteen dollars. It was a refund for an overcharge; but two million dollars? That's quite a mistake.
He couldn't think of any real reason the state would mail him a check like this. So after showing his friends and bragging about being a millionaire for a few weeks, he showed up at the state finance division to turn it in.
