Phone Bill : $218 trillion

A Malaysian man named Yahaya Wahab, has received a phone bill worth $218 trillion AND was ordered to pay up within 10 days or face prosecution. As expected, he is ready to seek legal action against Telekom Malaysia Berhad.

Wahab said he disconnected his late father's phone line in January after he died and settled the $23 bill, the New Straits Times reported. But, Telekom Malaysia later sent him a $218 trillion bill. It wasn't clear whether the bill was a mistake, or if the phone line was used illegally after the death of Wahab's father.

I'm just happy that it doesn't happen only in India.
