Man Sues Bank of America for 1.784 Billion, Trillion dollars
(h/t Cl5v5r and uh, to answer your question, dear, I'm not sure if this is more than a bazillion $ or not. I'll have to get back to you on that)
Dalton Chiscolm is unhappy about Bank of America's customer service—really, really unhappy.
Chiscolm in August sued the largest U.S. bank and its board, demanding that "1.784 billion, trillion dollars" be deposited into his account the next day. He also demanded an additional $200,164,000, court papers show.
Attempts to reach Chiscolm were unsuccessful. A Bank of America spokesman declined to comment.
"Incomprehensible," U.S. District Judge Denny Chin said in a brief order released Thursday in Manhattan federal court.
"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."
Chin has experience with big numbers. He's the judge who sentenced Bernard Madoff to a 150-year prison sentence for what the government called a $65 billion Ponzi scheme.
"If he thinks Bank of America has branches on every planet in the cosmos, then it might start to make some sense." Judge Chin gave Chiscolm until Oct. 23 to better explain the basis for his claims, or else see his complaint dismissed.
