She tried to withdraw $20, the amount she had come for, but she was not able to access the funds.

She said: "When I put in for the $20, the machine came back and said, 'We'll give you the $20, but that'll cause an overdraft and you will be charged,' and I said, 'Oh just forget it.'"

She said that she shared the account with her husband, who passed away recently.

"I know most people would think they won the lottery but I was horrified because it wasn't my money," she stated.
