ERIE, PA (WENY) -- A woman from Erie, Pennsylvania got quite the shock when she opened up her Penelec bill.
In a picture posted by Mary Horomanski, it appears that her total bill is $284,460,000,000, with a minimum payment of $28,176.
Reportedly, her bill was only for $284. A representative said the error happened because of a decimal point in the wrong spot.
In a Facebook post to GoErie.com, Horomanski said:
My question would be to send to Penelec .. Have your rates increased. If so has anyone been notified ? Because I’m pretty sure this bill alone reflex much more then that . If I’m not mistaken , it’s probably higher then the national debt. Although you actually give us until Nov 22 , 2018 to pay that but your looking for a current amount of $28,000 plus . So if we sell everything we own & then some just maybe in 100 years it just may be paid off . Any thoughts on this !!!
