Man sues Bank of America for $1,784 billion trillion


America has its share of ambitious people. But it is almost guaranteed that none in its lengthy history have filed a lawsuit against a bank for more money than Dalton Chiscolm. If my math is correct, Chiscolm is suing Bank of America (BAC) for over $1.78 septillion -- a septillion is 1 with 24 zeros after it. If Bank of America agreed to pay what its customer is asking, it would wipe out the bank's $196 billion in common equity 9.1 trillion times over.

According to Reuters, Chiscolm was unhappy because Bank of America would not deposit some of his checks due to problems with their routing numbers. And his efforts to solve the problem with the help of a "Spanish womn" were unsatisfactory. Chiscolm's lawsuit requests damages for his suffering, specifically, he asks that "1,784 billion, trillion dollars" be deposited into his ATM account the next day. He also demanded an additional $200,164,000."
