How'd you like to pay this one? 8-o :-o

Yahoo! News wrote:KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia - A Malaysian man said he nearly fainted when he recieved a $218 trillion phone bill and was ordered to pay up within 10 days or face prosecution, a newspaper reported Monday.

Yahaya Wahab said he disconnected his late father's phone line in January after he died and settled the 84 ringgit ($23) bill, the New Straits Times reported.

But Telekom Malaysia later sent him a 806,400,000,000,000.01 ringgit ($218 trillion) bill for recent telephone calls along with orders to settle within 10 days or face legal proceedings, the newspaper reported.

It wasn't clear whether the bill was a mistake, or if Yahaya's father's phone line was used illegally after after his death.

"If the company wants to seek legal action as mentioned in the letter, I'm ready to face it," the paper quoted Yahaya as saying. "In fact, I can't wait to face it," he said.

Yahaya, from northern Kedah state, received a notice from the company's debt-collection agency in early April, the paper said. Yahaya said he nearly fainted when he saw the new bill.

Government-linked Telekom Malaysia Bhd. is the country's largest telecommunications company.

A company official, who declined to be identified as she was not authorized to speak to the media, said Telekom Malaysia was aware of Yahaya's case and would address it. She did not provide further details.

Exactly my thought.

I can't imagine that's anything more than a clerical error.

If they only get one person to pay a bill like this, they'd be the richest company in the world!

Put bamboo under his finger nails until he yells uncle...simply for their own enjoyment

there is absolutely no way he could ever pay it off..not in 1 lifetime, or 10,000 at that, for where he lives the job paying rates are peanuts to what we make, he would have to rob 800 million banks successfully or 7-11 4,360,000,000 times, since 7-11 doesnt have more then $50 in their register at a time(yea i actually did the math for that last fact)

You know its gotta be a clerical error when the US government couldn't possibly even spend that much that quickly.
