N. Salem family gets $23 quadrillion bill
$23 quadrillion, 148 trillion, 855 billion, 308 million, 184 thousand, 500 dollars for overdrawing your account on a train ticket?
That's exactly what happened to a North Salem 18-year-old. Martin Alcock says his daughter Lydia is the one who got the huge overdraft statement from her Visa Buxx account. He says at first they thought that number was available cash on her credit line and they were thinking of how they might want to spend it, jokingly, of course.
The bank ended up dropping the real $20 overdraft fee. Here's an interesting tidbit: $23 quadrillion is 2,000 times the national debt!
