Could be an honest mistake though and I'm just over-thinking it, I don't know.

I have a very hard time believe this was an accident, for several reasons. Like you said, it's seems pretty weird to send something like that via text. Even more, it seems weird to be sending it in the first place by any means. I don't see any reason why a broker, financial adviser or whatever would want a bank statement. I've never heard of anyone wanting a statement like that.
Another thing I think is weird is having that much money in a bank account. It was a bank account and not some other kind of account? People don't put that much money in a plain old bank account. They invest it. Even if they had it in the bank, they'd have it split up between multiple banks, and/or multiple accounts. If this is in the US, then that much money in one account is not even insured.
There are just too many weird things about it. I don't see any way to give him the benefit of the doubt. The whole thing seems manipulative.1
