If you thought your cable bill was outrageous, get a load of the $16.4 million Time Warner Cable charged an Ohio engineer. Unsurprisingly, his presumably automatic credit card payment for the bill was rejected due to insufficient funds.
The Dayton Daily News reports the man was in a joking mood about the insane overbilling. He said:
“Had I known this I would have bought Showtime. Five bucks more for Showtime is a bit much, but heck — $16,409,112. Who cares?”
A TWC rep said the man did not receive a bill for the amount, and his credit card wasn’t charged $16.4 million either. Said the rep:
“We apologize for the inconvenience that it caused.We are going to work with the customer to get this resolved.”
