Itâ€™s one thing to bounce a check and itâ€™s another to be so far in the red Bill Gates, Warren Buffet and Donald Trump combined couldnâ€™t come close to bailing you out. A Cobb County man got a letter from his bank with that very shocking news.
â€œAnd I open up the letter and I look at it and Iâ€™m like, â€˜No, youâ€™ve got to be kidding me,â€™ said Joe Martins.
Martins said he recently closed an account at Wachovia Bank and made good on an outstanding check. He just got a letter about the closure and his negative balance — $211,010,028,257,303.00. Thatâ€™s $211 trillion.
The letter includes the clarification, â€œno cents.â€
â€œI didnâ€™t know what to think. Obviously $211 trillion is a little above what I put in my bank account,â€ said Martins.
$211 trillion is more than 70 times the entire federal budget.
