Larissa farmer becomes billionaire for a few hours
A 32-year-old farmer from Farsala near Larissa became a billionaire for a few hours on Tuesday, due to a banking error.
According to reports, the bank mistakenly credited the 32-year-old man’s account with 2,015,718,268.59 euros, which is essentially the amount of subsidies paid out to farmers for an entire year.
The bank promptly contacted the 32-year-old man to inform him of the error, who in turn asked for an official statement to avoid any potential problems from a tax audit.
