One whopper of a power bill mistake

By  | 

A New York power company sends a multi-million-dollar bill to one of its customers.
Tommy Straub received the bill totaling nearly 38-million dollars... $37,974,401.35 to be exact.
Figuring it was a mistake Straub decided to take a photo of the bill and share it online.
He also sent Con Edison a tweet writing quote: "I own a 600 square foot apartment in Astoria, Queens. I do not own the entirety of Manhattan island. This is insane. Fix it."
Straub says he has no problem with the utility company, and was pleased to receive a quick response.
In the end, the issue was resolved with Straub paying just $77.14
Con Edison says it has no record of the online payment field generating the originial amount.
