It's not e^(2*pi), it's e^(i*pi), which equals -1. So the whole expression is $0.002 - 1 + 1 = $0.002.

That's how you get your account magically drained. If data entry clerks and optical scanners can't figure out what you wrote, they either send it back to you with a bill for a late fee attached, or they fill in something that looks close enough and you get an overdraft fee.
