Texas Residents Get Billion-Dollar Bills
WEATHERFORD, Texas - Some people in Weatherford got billion-dollar scares this week after they opened their electric bills. Richard Redden's bill said he owed more than $24 billion.
Pam Pearson, of Weatherford Electric, said a printing company made a mistake and nearly 1,400 customers received erroneous late notices.
Pearson said customers who received the inaccurate bills will get the correct ones later this month and won't face any late fees.
Meanwhile, Redden says he guesses his family shouldn't have run the heater quite so much.
Weatherford is about 20 miles west of Fort Worth.
