"My eyes just about popped out of my head", the 58-year-old told Erie Times-News, describing her shock when checking her bill online.

Unsurprisingly it was an error, with the actual bill US$284.46 - a one billionth of what the initial bill was. The Erie resident added that her family wondered if something went wrong after they put their Christmas lights up on the house.

As for Mary Horomanski, she reportedly told her son that after seeing the bill she'd prefer a heart monitor for Christmas.

Horomanski's bill was adjusted to reflect the correct payment of $284.46.

Devon Energy Corporation (NYSE:DVN) Short Interest Decreased By 9.01%
Northcoast Asset Mngmt Ltd Liability Com has invested 0.06% of its portfolio in Devon Energy Corporation (NYSE: DVN ). Other hedge funds and other institutional investors also recently made changes to their positions in the company.


Luckily the company gave her a pretty lenient deadline to pay it off. A call from Horomanski's son fixed things right up, as Fox News reported.

A spokesman for Penelec's parent company First Energy addressed the incorrect bill situation, suggesting that a decimal point must have been accidentally moved.

'We appreciate the customer's willingness to reach out to us about the mistake'.

After speaking with her son, who promptly contacted the utility company, she learned that the entire episode had thankfully been nothing more than a freaky error.

Horomanski told her son she had a better idea for a Christmas gift after she saw the $284 billion bill, according to the paper.
