Volunteer Firefighter Discovers $8.2 Million In His Bank Account
STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. A firefighter in Indiana went to the ATM. He expected his account to hold cash the government is sending Americans.

Easy come, easy go - although Calvin still does have that stimulus payment.
