Dead guy gets $218 trillion phone bill

Telekom Malaysia send a letter to a man who passed away several months ago, threatening to sue him if he doesn’t pay 806,400,000,000,000.01-ringgit (about $218 trillion) within ten days:

Telekom Malaysia billed him after his son Yahaya Wahab cancelled the contract last January and paid the $23 that the father owed at the time of his death. His son —who received the 806,400,000,000,000.01-ringgit bill months after— said that he nearly fainted, probably because of the impression of seeing all those zeros on paper more than from the idea of his zombie father calling phone-sex lines from the afterlife.

Shurely some mistake

  1. lol thats funny, i had my cell phone stolen and over I called to cancel it the next day but the person that stole it already racked up like 500 in long distance calls. I worked out a deal with my cell phone company and they said i didnt have to pay it. 218 trillion is a lot for a phone bill lol.
