  • (4-10-06)Think your phone bill is high? Try $218 trillion

    KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia - A Malaysian man said he nearly fainted when he received a U.S. $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 (U.S. $23) bill, the New Straits Times reported.

    But Telekom Malaysia later sent him a 806,400,000,000,000.01-ringgit (U.S. $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 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.

      Lets say you talked every single minute of the day and where roaming for entire month at the average roam rate of .69 cents a minute....that would only be $44,640 ontop of what ever plan you have. (that is 1440min in a day times 31 days in a month at a .69 cent roaming fee)...so in order to get to even a million let alone a trillion they have to have some pretty huge overage and roaming fees in Malaysia.

      Also he said that it was since January so even if he did what I said for 3 months straight he would only equal $133,920 in my scenario. So they had to buy a shit load of things, roam, and huge ass overage fees that are more then 69cents a minute in Malaysia.

      So, I say mistake, it can't happen...phone company would shut the phone off before it ever hit that mark.

      EDIT: There are only 44,640 minutes in a month (with 31 days) if he talked on his phone for ever single one of them and was charged $100 a minute, that would still only be $4,464,000...even if he was charged $100,000 a minute that is only a max of $4,464,000,000.....so in order to hit $218 trillion he would have to be charged an average of $540,000 a minute and talk ever possible minute of the day ever day in a 1 month bill. If it was in a 3 month bill it would be about $180,000 a minute for 3 months straight talking every single minute possible for those 3 months.

                    Everybody sound same; commercialize the game, reminiscing when it wasn’t all business.

                          Of course it's possible BMG or Columbia House run that dude's phone company. Lord knows I owe them a buttload for all the cds they've sent me and I never paid for. Hell, they sent me cds when I joined Columbia under the name Luke Skywalker. I shit you not.
