    Visa card surprise: $23,148,855,308,184,500

    MANCHESTER, N.H. - Some Visa cardholders were surprised to find that recent purchases cost them a little more than expected — $23 quadrillion, plus change.

    In New Hampshire, Josh Muszynski said he swiped his debit card at a gas station to buy a pack of cigarettes and when he later checked his account online found that he had been charged the 17-digit number — a stunning $23,148,855,308,184,500.

    In North Texas, Jon Seale saw the same 17-figure bill on his credit card statement, presumably for a meal July 13 at a restaurant owned by celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck, NBC affiliate KXAS TV reported.

    "For that amount of money, I could actually own Wolfgang Puck himself," Seale said.

    Visa recognizes the problem and will only be asking that these customers pay the interest on the amount changed.

    You know, they count on people not checking their bills carefully. They just need one or two people to pay this without questioning it.

    That's big of them to only charge interest. Surely they're kidding. Can you imagine the interest on that amount?

    I check all the bills, even the receipts at the grocery stores. It's amazing how many mistakes there are.

    I'm pretty sure FlaGator was kidding. ;)
