Checking your bank balance after a night out is always a bit nerve-wracking, but one woman must have been in a state of shock when she looked at hers. Watch the moment she found out she was massively in debt:
The brave individual you see above checked it in the early hours, only to see she was $50bn dollars in debt - minus the $76 she actually had in her account.
Maddie McGivern, who's thought to be from California, saw the negative balance on her account, which came to -$49,999,999,697.98.
She banks with US based brand Chase, but was told that she was owing billions.
In a video uploaded on Monday, she said: "I wish I could say I bought the city of Los Angeles. It's not the case here. I'm not really sure what inclined me to check my bank account at like 2am. But I did. And then I saw negative 49 billion. Called my bank, and it went a little something like this.
"'Hello this is Chase bank how may I help you?' Hi, I'm negative 50 billion dollars in debt, and I'm not quite sure why.
"Do I have 50 billion dollars? No. I do have $76. So she goes, 'can I put you on hold?' I've never seen this before. I was like, oh.
"It also said on my account I would get $50 billion in 2099. Which would be sick but I don't know if I would be alive at that point.
"Anyway I have to go in to the bank tomorrow to figure it out."
She followed up the day after to let people know what happened when she went into the bank.
Maddie explained what had happened with the account, saying the bank staff told her it's a new tactic the bank have to tell users there is something wrong with their account. She advises anyone who experiences the same thing to call them.
She added: "I will say it's the scary as s*** way to grab someone's attention. Clearly they do that to grab your attention, because they want you to fix your s***.
"But it's fixed and that's all that matters. So no, I'm not 50 billion dollars in debt anymore, thank God.
"And unfortunately I wasn't the person to take on everyone's student debt, but maybe Jeff Bezos will."
