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.
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.
"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."
...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."

Okay, as far as I can tell, this guy is not a millionaire. So what's with all the accusations about his character?
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.
