£125 trillion phone bill

A man has received a phone bill for £125 trillion.

Yahaya Wahib said he was shocked when he got the bill at his home from Telekom Malaysia.

He was told he had to pay up within 10 days or face prosecution.

The bill was for the phone line of his father, who died in January reports New Straits Times.

Mr Wahib had that line disconnected and settled the outstanding 84 ringgit (£13).

But Telekom Malaysia then billed him for 806,400,000,000,000.01 ringgit for calls they claim he made recently.

Mr Wahib said: “If the company wants to seek legal action, I’m ready to face it. In fact, I can’t wait to face it.”

A company official said Telekom Malaysia was looking into the case.
