Man Gets $218 Trillion Phone Bill

If you think your cell phone bill is high, how about this Malaysian man who got a $218 TRILLION phone bill, along with notice to pay within 10 days or face prosecution

Yahaya Wahab claims he canceled his father’s service with Telekom Malaysia after his death in January and closed the account for 84-ringgit (U.S. $23)

“If the company wants to seek legal action as mentioned in the letter, I’m ready to face it,” Yahaya said. “In fact, I can’t wait to face it.”

Telekom Malaysia Bhd. is the country’s largest teleco. A company official is said to be aware of the issue and is addressing it, with no further details forthcoming.

    I would have sent them a check for the full amount. Just to see if the mindless clones who work there would try to send it through to deposit.

    I would have sent one of those huge sweepstakes checks. THAT would have been funny.

    I would just send them a poorly-drawn 218 trillion dollar bill with Ronald McDonald on the front.
