and demands an extra $200,164,000 for "miscellaneous fees"

Infuriated with Bank of America (http://www.nbcnewyork.com/topics?topic=Bank+of+America+Corporation)’s customer service, Dalton Chiscolm (http://www.nbcnewyork.com/topics?topic=Dalton+Chiscolm) decided to do what every other red-blooded American in his situation would do: He sued them.

How much did he sue them for?

Try $1,784 billion trillion, according to Reuters (http://www.reuters.com/article/oddlyEnoughNews/idUSTRE58O4SC20090925). That’s the number 1,784 followed by 18 zeros. It’s also more money than the world’s 2008 gross domestic product, which was comprised of a measly $60 trillion (that’s six followed by 13 zeroes). To top it off, he also wants an additional $200,164,000 for "miscellaneous fees."

Chiscolm decided he was entitled to the money after he received inconsistent information regarding his bank accounts from “a Spanish woman” during numerous calls to Bank of America’s headquarters in New York City (http://www.nbcnewyork.com/topics?topic=New+York+City).

“The claim is incomprehensible,” he wrote.
Chin previously had the honor of sentencing Ponzi-schemer Bernie Madoff (http://www.nbcnewyork.com/topics?topic=Bernard+Madoff) to 150 years in prison.
Chin gave Chiscolm until Oct. 23 to explain why his case shouldn’t be dismissed.

I can understand him being mad but that's a bit to much! On a side note I saw on O'Reilly tonight that some woman used the Internet to get Bank of America to bring her interest rate back down on her credit cards. I guess they had raised it from 13% to 30% and she didn't have the six grand to pay them completely of and get out of it!

Banks suck. They might be the biggest criminals of our modern times.

How can they justify charging us to hold on to OUR money. Of course, if we want to borrow money, they charge us WAY more. Why does every situation favor them?

Screw the banks. I'll have no credit cards. I only keep my money in a credit union that actually pays me interest (even though it's a tiny amount). Unfortunately, when the time comes I will have to borrow to build my new house. Hate the thought of it though.
