A New Hampshire man says he swiped his debit card at a gas station to buy a pack of cigarettes and was charged over 23 quadrillion dollars.

Josh Muszynski checked his account online a few hours later and saw the 17-digit number - a stunning $23,148,855,308,184,500 (twenty-three quadrillion, one hundred forty-eight trillion, eight hundred fifty-five billion, three hundred eight million, one hundred eighty-four thousand, five hundred dollars).

"I thought my card had been compromised. I thought somebody had bought Europe with my credit card," Muszynski told WMUR-TV (http://www.wmur.com/money/20057331/detail.html). "It was very concerning."
