Virginia Beach accidentally paid someone’s electric bill for 20 years

Ever noticed a charged for something you didn’t buy in your bank statement? Chances are it wasn’t for $140,000. That’s what the City of Virginia Beach has paid over the last 20 years in electric bills for a building it hasn’t had offices in since 1995. The mistake was discovered by an audit, The Virginian-Pilot reports.
