Talk about a big fact error!

Talk about a big fact error!

This story caught my eye as I scanned the headlines on my iPhone. A man in New Hampshire purchased a pack of cigarettes and was billed for $23 quadrillion.

I was amazed at this fact error, and I also wondered if my AP Stylebook contained quadrillion.

When I went online to read more about the story, I discovered that this same Visa glitche happened to a man in Texas after he dined at a Wolfgang Puck restaurant.

Both of these incidents were caused by the Visa Buxx credit card. Ironically, this card is a pre-paid Visa card.
