Guy does to bank what banks usually do to other people

The idea of beating the banks at  their own game may seem like a rich joke, but Dmitry Agarkov, a  42-year-old Russian man, may have managed it. Unhappy with the terms of  an unsolicited credit card offer he received from online bank Tinkoff  Credit Systems, Agarkov scanned the document, wrote in his own terms and  sent it through. The bank approved the contract without reading the  amended fine print, unwittingly agreeing to a 0 percent interest rate,  unlimited credit and no fees, as well as a stipulation that the bank pay  steep fines for changing or canceling the contract.

Agarkov  used the card for two years, but the bank ultimately canceled it and  sued Agarkov for $1,363. The bank said he owed them charges, interest  and late-payment fees. A court ruled that, because of the no-fee,  no-interest stipulation Agarkov had written in, he owed only his unpaid  $575 balance. Now Agarkov is suing the bank for $727,000 for not  honoring the contract's terms, and the bank is hollering fraud. "They  signed the documents without looking. They said what usually their  borrowers say in court: 'We have not read it,'” Agarkov's lawyer said.  The shoe's on the other foot now, eh?

Edit:
Later, they settled on both dropping the charges they pressed on each other. Agarov stated that it was all an escalated joke.
