Virginia man: Oh no, not another million dollars
SUFFOLK, Va. -- When Mike Kainrath found an extra $1.8 million in his bank account last week, he had just one thought: "Oh, no! Not again." Kainrath had found an extra $115,661 in the account in April 2003, and $2,700 in November 2002. According to the notice Kainrath received Nov. 17 from the Bank of New York, the money was supposed to have been transferred between a different bank in New York and one in the Netherlands Antilles. Kevin Heine, a spokesman for the bank, said that sooner or later the error would have been caught when banks reconciled their transfers to each other. Kainrath, a marketing research manager at The Virginian-Pilot newspaper in Norfolk, said he is going to make one change the next time he's in New York, just in case another huge sum lands in his account again, even for a few days. "I'm going to change it to an interest-bearing account," he said.
Fla. family has happy birthday, times four
BELLEVIEW, Fla. -- It's hard to forget a birthday in the Dover family -- everyone was born on Nov. 26. On Friday, Kimberly Dover will turn 31, husband Billy will be 35 and their twins, Angelica and Derrick, will celebrate their first birthday. The parents said they were surprised to have any children, let alone two on their birthday. After years of infertility, they were about to give up when one last treatment proved effective. The babies were due Dec. 17, 2003. But Kimberly was hospitalized a month earlier with complications, and a doctor decided to deliver the babies by Caesarian section on Nov. 26. The proud parents are looking forward to more birthdays. "I can't wait till they go to Walt Disney World," Kimberly said.
