You better not be a heart. While he wants to buy a sandwich between two appointments, Frederick D. Aspremont, a Belgian entrepreneur, has an unpleasant surprise when he sees his card turned down for insufficient balance, the Daily Mail reports. Last hour. Convinced that he has enough money in his account, he proceeds with his bank application which displays a negative balance of € 99,999,996,506.16.
"When your card is rejected for a lunch sandwich and Belpius tells you you have (almost) -100 billion euros," Frederic commented on Facebook, photo support. If he initially claims to have taken this accident as a joke, "it is still a major blow to stress," he admitted.
In the misunderstanding, the Belgian entrepreneur naturally turns to his bank Belpius, who explains that this is probably a mistake. No further clarification. "I had to go out of my way to get things moving, especially through my lawyer," Frederick testified. Last hour.
Following the investigation, it appears that the problem stems from a dispute with a company competing with its own in the video production sector. The latter attacked him for plagiarism, but Frederic says he was not "convicted". Before you add:
"But what I didn't know is that bank accounts can be frozen while the verdict falls and that is what happened."
However, this does not justify a negative balance of almost 100 billion euros. "A bug, it can happen," Frederic calmed down, whose bank balance has now returned to baseline.
