$5M HSBC Bank Incident
Brizel inadvertently became famous in the New York Daily News on May 12, 2012. The newspaper ran his photo and story after HSBC Bank USA inadvertently sent him a letter he received on May 10, 2012, crediting his checking account for $5,022,012 for what had been a $150 debit card overcharge for a bed frame order he had cancelled after being charged. Brizel resolved the bank's accounting error shortly thereafter.
