PHILADELPHIA, Dec. 14 (UPI) -- A Pennsylvania woman's lawsuit against Capital One claims she was harassed for months over an erroneous $286,651,237 credit card bill.

The Philadelphia court lawsuit filed by Patrice Perry, 58, alleges the company used "terroristic debt-collection methods" while dunning her, family members and co-workers for months to collect on an erroneous debt, the Philadelphia Daily News reported Tuesday.

capital one did something on a much smaller scale to us years ago. they claimed we had a credit card with them and charged us a yearly fee. i knew we didnt since we didnt have any credit cards at the time! i dont know how they got our name etc, the only card we had was a store card to buy a fridge. they hounded me for months and i finally just paid off the $80 cause i was tired of it---but still angry about it. i cant believe this company and i am not the only one i know who has had something similar happen.

I would've asked what my credit limit was and then written some checks on top of it. Then left the country. I mean if you can rack of $287 million you must have at least a $300 million credit limit, right?
