“Obviously, I knew it was a mistake,” he said.
So the Honest Abe sent an e-mail to his online customer service rep — and attached a photo of his enhanced account.
“This is interesting – Please call me IMMEDIATELY – Did I just win the Lottery???,” he wrote.
Oddly, it took the brokerage about an hour and a half to get back to Levene — and take back the errant cash.
