It's never a fun time when your monthly bills start rolling in, especially when it is close to Christmas. Many families are already strapped for cash during the holiday season, so bill payments can and will cause an undue amount of stress. But the reality is, they need to get paid.
One woman from Erie, Pennsylvania opened up her electricity bill this month and nearly dropped dead of a heart attack. Mary Horomanski opened up her bill and was blown away by a 12 digit sum of money she apparently owed the electricity company. Based on her bill, she allegedly owed them $284,460,000,000.00, for those of you following along at home, that is $284 billion.
The good news was she had a full year to pay the balance, with a minimum monthly payment of $28,176.00. Being the sharp woman that she is, Horomanski figured that there had to be some sort of error with her bill, and she decided to call the company, Penelec, to inquire.
