BoA has probably made that much money on overdraft fees alone, lol.

Not really, obviously that much money doesn't exist. Funny how many people thought he had it, or is really trying to win that much money.

Sorry I couldn't help myself, anyway you have to almost respect the guts this guy has, that must have been some horrible customer service.

They probably didnt say "Have a nice day Surrrr"
Or maybe they did after he just found out he'd be slapped with a fine for dropping into his overdraft?

Could be they were charging him just to cash a cheque. (Check out the linked OP - it's almost as bizarre as the court claim.)

It's high time we got to grips with what led to this case. It turns out $1,784,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 isn't the full amount:

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.


It also turns out Mr Chiscolm is not just claiming damages - he seems to be claiming he actually deposited checks approaching this sum, but that they got diverted. Apparently someone on the helpline then had the audacity to challenge what he was saying:

"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,'" [sic] the judge wrote. "He apparently alleges that checks have been rejected because of incomplete routing numbers."

Personally I believe him. Sounds like an illuminatus. Or a Goldman Sachs broker, perhaps:

...the money Chiscolm wants could dwarf all the bank's other problems.

...The sum also dwarfs the world's 2008 gross domestic product of $60 trillion, as estimated by the World Bank.

"These are the kind of numbers you deal with only on a cosmic scale," said Sylvain Cappell, New York University's Silver Professor at the Courant Institute for Mathematical Sciences. "If he thinks Bank of America has branches on every planet in the cosmos, then it might start to make some sense."

Maybe Mr Chiscolm knows something the rest of us don't. It might help explain why NASA has spent so much effort locating planets that orbit far-flung star systems. No wonder Bernanke couldn't say where all the bailout money had gone.

Didnt know there was that much money in the world.Yet i guess when it comes to digital dollers(97% of currency) you can press any number in.

Good luck getting anything close to that under Tort Law.

He has to demonstrably show financial damages to either self or property to be awarded damages in Court.

He can show legal fees, loss of work and/or time, medical bills (if claiming anguish or suffering), et cetera.

It is doubtful that the Plaintiff is able to provide an accurate accounting of damages to even a minute fraction of that number.

As such, it is the jurisprudence of the Court to dismiss his suit as "frivolous" if he cannot back his claim of damages for the amount that he is suing for.

This is clearly a statement being made, a chance to show how ludicrous everything is.

And no, he won't win this case.
Even if the courts sided with him to join in the fun and games of making such a point, all involved would end up spending their entire lives fighting legal battles and no money would ever change hands.

It's an amusing story, nothing more.

Not quite so... the lawyers will always get somebodies money...
