GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. (WSB) -- A woman in Georgia is trying to find out how her bank account became overdrawn -- by hundreds of millions of dollars.

Ann Wiley realized she had a problem when she tried paying a bill online and got error messages in return. It was when she was denied at a gas pump that she checked her bank account over the phone.

She found out she was in the red by $100 million. Her computer at home confirmed that and then some: she was $300 million in the red.

The woman's bank blamed the Department of Revenue. But the department said it had no documents showing it was in the wrong.

Meanwhile, the woman has no access to any of her money. She believes a $274 sales tax bill may be at the root of the problem.

But the Department of Revenue is still working with the bank to figure out exactly what's going on.
