When out-of-network ATM fees just don't matter

So this might be jealousy talking, but nothing makes paying ATM fees worse than seeing how little those few bucks matter to some people.

In East Hampton, New York, someone is claiming to have found an ATM receipt showing a remaining account balance of $99,864,731.94.

The owner of the receipt is unclear, but whoever it is withdrew $400, and paid $2.75 in out-of-network ATM fees.

I guess it's hard to worry about $2.75 when it's only 0.0000027 percent of your total bank balance.

What do you think? Is the receipt real?
