No, it isn't mine. It is the phone bill of man who passed away in Malaysia. His son thought he'd gotten it canceled after his father's passing six month's ago. Guess he's wrong. What's mind boggling on this is that the total of the bill is $218 trillion. That's more than the entire world's GDP, currently at $65.95 trillion.
So, while we are talking about staggering amounts, and folks are wondering how accounts payable software can make such a goof, (not to mention any human oversight) here's a question. How many minutes and at what rate would you have to be connected to ring up those charges. Not much adds up here.
Reminds me a little of the time I attended a conference which was essentially the shakedown of a new Adams/Mark Hotel Conference Center in Jacksonville. A lot of attendees on check out were getting hit with $1,000 and more phone bills on check out. And for awhile had to defend or dispute each claim that the calls were errors. Once they chalked it up to, wait for it..... computer error, all was forgiven.
