Time Warner Sends Ohio Man $16 Million Cable Bill
Turns out, the company made what it's calling a "human error" in calculating DeVirgilio's bill. An employee reportedly typed in the wrong total, which triggered an alert from Time Warner's automated system. DeVirgilio was notified that his credit card had been rejected for insufficient funds, but the card was never charged. Time Warner has promised to resolve the issue.
DeVirgilio, for his part, seems to have taken the snafu in stride. "Had I known this I would have bought Showtime," he told the Dayton Daily News. "Five bucks more for Showtime is a bit much, but heck -- $16,409,112. Who cares?"
