(Newser) – An angry customer is suing Bank of America for "1,784 billion, trillion dollars" over service he found less than satisfying, Reuters reports. Dalton Chiscolm filed the suit for "inconsistent information from a 'Spanish woman,'” a judge says. "He apparently alleges that checks have been rejected because of incomplete routing numbers." Chiscolm's demand surpasses a sextillion dollars, or a 1 followed by 21 zeros.
