JACK: Computers aren’t always right. They make mistakes, encounter errors, and crash. Sometimes the errors can be frustrating especially when the computer is at a big company and it makes a billing error that says you owe them $1,000. When that corporation won’t admit it’s their mistake and insists you pay for the bill that you didn’t create, this can be infuriating. But what can you do when you try to fight it but the corporation refuses to admit it’s their problem? Well, some hackers know exactly what to do.
