1748 billion, trillion dollars

1748 billion, trillion dollars

A man in the US decided to sue the country’s largest bank for more than sextillion dollars, because the bank apparently provided bad service.

$1784,000,000,000,000,000,000. That’s the amount that Dalton Chiscolm, an unhappy Bank of America customer came up with, to sue the bank for its bad service. Chiscolm filed a lawsuit against the bank this August, demanding that it deposit “1,784 billion, trillion dollars” into his account the next day, reports Reuters. He also claimed an additional $200,164,000, although we are unsure for what.

However, Manhattan court judge Denny Chin was not amused by his suit, calling it “incomprehensible,” in a brief order released last week. “He seems to be complaining that he placed a series of calls to the bank in New York and received inconsistent information from a ‘Spanish woman,’” the judge wrote. “He apparently alleges that checks have been rejected because of incomplete routing numbers.”

The judge has now asked Chiscolm to explain the basis for his claim by October 23, or get ready to have his case dismissed.

Chiscolm probably pulled the stunt for publicity, and going by the extensive media coverage that his court case received, he should be a happy man. But how do you think he came up with that number: 1748 billion, trillion?  What is the number you would have come up with?

Kipp’s would be 9999 billion trillion. For no reason other than that we’d like to have the money.
