Man clobbered with £126 trillion phone bill

Makes BT's £616k cock-up look like small beer

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Publican Jack Harding got the shock of his life when he received his monthly phone bill from BT demanding more than £616,000.

But if you think that's bad, spare a thought for Yahaya Wahab, a 63-year-old meat importer from Malaysia. He's just been sent a bill for 806 trillion Ringgit - about £126 trillion.

According to Malaysia's New Straits Times, he's been given 10 days to cough up or face legal action.

He told the paper: "If the company wants to seek legal action as mentioned in the letter, I'm ready to face it. In fact, I can't wait to face it." ®
