I’m suing you for “1,784 billion, trillion dollars”!

This guy named Dalton Chiscolm is unhappy about Bank of America’s customer service — like really, really, really, really unhappy 😐

Anyways, in August he decided to sue the largest U.S. bank and its board… demanding

“1,784 billion, trillion dollars”

be deposited into his account
the next day. He also demanded an additional $200,164,000. 
According to the news story:

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 womn,'” 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.

Yet the money Chiscolm wants could dwarf all the bank’s other problems.
It’s larger than a sextillion dollars, or a 1 followed by 21 zeros.
Chiscolm’s request is equivalent 1 followed by 22 digits. The sum also
dwarfs the world’s 2008 gross domestic product of $60 trillion, as
estimated by the World Bank.

The Judge gave Chiscolm until October 23 to explain the basis for his claims, or else his complaint will be dismissed.

Just how many zeros is 1,784 billion trillion? Convention is that it’s 21 zeros:

1 784 000 000 000 000 000 000 000

WOW! Just…. wow!
