I'm a bit surprised at Yahoo! front page today regarding the Quadrillion-Dollar Credit Card Bill. It was sooo terrifying for me who doesn't like having a credit higher than 5-digit. To be exact, the credit card bill was $23,148,855,308,184,500.00. According to the article it is 2000 times the national debt of U.S. I hope Philippines wouldn't reach quadrillion amount of debt.
23 quadrillion,148 trillion, 855 billion, 308 million, 184,000, 500 dollars.
Upon reading the article, I learned that it was just system error that causes Mr. Jon Seale's credit card bill. Here's what really happened.

"A temporary programming error at Visa Debit Processing Services caused some transactions to be inaccurately posted to a small number of Visa prepaid accounts," said Visa spokeswoman Elvira Swanson said in a written statement. "The technical glitch has been corrected, and all erroneous postings have been removed.”
For me, as a credit card owner, you should really be wise in handling your credit card, don't easily entrust to anyone, always review your credit card purchases and keep a copy of your receipt as much as possible.
