    $211 Trillion Overdrawn Balance

    Joe Martins, who lives in Cobb County, recently closed an account at Wachovia Bank. Soon thereafter he received a letter confirming the closure and alerting him to an unpaid balance of $211,010,028,257,303.00. The letter went on to tell Martins that the bank was reporting him to an agency that tracks risky customers.

    An Iowa football player must have got ahold of his account info. Just Kidding SH. That seems to be a rather large mistake. I wish the bank would go and make a mistake in the opposite direction for me.

    Once he pays up the taxes from all that income to Wachovia should really solve the national debt problem

    He probably just took a cash advance and it will get straightened out as soon as they deposit the funds from that african lottery that he won.

    A couple years ago, Wells Fargo credited one of my deposits as $2500 more than I actually put in. I called them, and did get a thank you letter

    Re: $211 Trillion Overdrawn Balance

    Bank error not in your favor. Wachovia must have some pretty onerous fees. The interesting question is what does that do to their accounting. 'Well, we had been charging off all of our subprime mortgage losses to Jumbopackage, but he closed his account out, so we've gotta find a new patsie now'.

    Re: $211 Trillion Overdrawn Balance

    If anyone read the article, he didn't actually owe the money. The bank messed up big time. The amount he owed was his actual account number.
