Excessive Bank Fees

The $2.7 billion second quarter profit by JPMorgan and the $3.44 billion profit at Goldman Sachs would have been pocket change for Bank of America if they had successfully pulled off this heist.
New Hampshire resident Josh Muszynski bought a pack of cigarettes at a local gas station for what he thought would be a few bucks but his bank account indicated he actually spent $23 quadrillion instead.

Expecting to see a few hundred dollars of charges when he logged online to check his debit account, Muszynski was amazed to see the 17-digit figure of $23,148,855,308,184,500.

Damn him for noticing. I would have assumed another cigarette tax went into effect.
