Three Trillion Dollar Check Returned
February 25, 2022 6:09AM CST
A man received the shock of a lifetime after being sent a check for compensation from his energy supplier that ran into the trillions.
Gareth Hughes, 44, from Hebden Bridge in West Yorkshire, U.K., was one of 74 customers sent one of the erroneous checks by Northern Powergrid.
The energy supplier is in the process of paying out thousands in compensation to customers hit by power outages as a result of Storm Arwen, which hit the U.K. back in November 2021.
Thank you for our compensation payment @Northpowergrid for the several days we were without power following #stormarwen Before I bank the cheque however, are you 100% certain you can afford this? #trillionpounds pic.twitter.com/z5MNc2Nxl1
