Accidental Millionaire

Accidental Millionaire Bill Gates beware - a Norwegian man may be in the running for the title of "World's Richest Man".

Checking his bank account on-line he noticed a banking glitch which put his wealth at a staggering 9,999,999,973,885.24 Norwegian crowns. That's equivalent to about seven hundred and fifty-three billion dollars - easily eclipsing the fortune of Bill Gates with his miserly thirty-three billion dollars.

Honesty got the better of him however and he handed back his new found wealth to the bank.
