Check you Visa account .... carefully

From the NPR website
Jon Seale recently charged a slice of pizza and a Coke to his Visa card. The amount he saw on his online statement: $23,148,855,308,184,500.

The global gross domestic product is, by contrast, estimated at between a paltry $60 trillion and $70 trillion.
But Seale was not alone,
Seale was not the only person who experienced the glitch. It turns out that a small number of people, all using their Visa cards, were charged the same amount.
If the account was in Zimbabwe dollars I could believe it, but not when it is US dollars.
