Pennsylvania Resident Receives $284 BILLION Electricity Bill
It remains unclear exactly how the error occurred.
Pennsylvania resident Mary Horomanski couldn’t believe what she was reading when she received the bill.
While it is not unusual to receive an electricity bill that is a few dollars higher than expected, being asked to pay up hundreds of billions for a few months’ worth of power is more than a little absurd.
Horomanski, who lives in Erie, received a bill for a ridiculous $284,460,000,000 ( $284 billion ) with an initial payment of $28,176 being due for payment by the end of December.
Fortunately a call to her electricity provider soon revealed that the actual bill due was a mere $284.
“I can’t recall ever seeing a bill for billions of dollars,” said company spokesman Mark Durbin. “We appreciate the customer’s willingness to reach out to us about the mistake.”
