Man clobbered with £126 trillion phone bill

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

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." ®
