The $218 Trillion Phone Bill: Use Your Noodle

by | 13th, August 2007

USE your Noodle and avoid this flagrant profiteering:

A Malaysian man who paid off a $23 wireless bill and disconnected his late father’s cell phone back in January has been stiffed for subsequent charges on the closed account, MSNBC has reported. Telekom Malaysia sent Yahaya Wahab a bill for 806,400,000,000,000.01 ringgit, or about $218 trillion, for charges to the account, along with a demand from the company’s debt collection agency that he settle the alleged debt within 10 days, or get a lawyer.

Bring it on, bean counters. Funereal topcoats, ghostly visages and all.

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