Phone company to woman: You owe us $15 quadrillion
In a story that gives new meaning to the phrase "bill shock," a French carrier charges a customer a sum that would easily wipe out the European debt crisis.
Solenne San Jose who lives in the Bordeaux region of France, received a cell phone bill late last month for 11,721,000,000,000,000 euros, or about $15 quadrillion. Lady likes to talk!
In all fairness, San Jose had been warned she would be charged a fee for terminating her contract with Bouygues Telecom early. She was not, however, told that fee would greatly exceed the GDP of France.
