World's Biggest Telephone Bill.

The record amount for a telephone bill is 11,721,000,000,000,000 Euros. Unbelievable? It is true; this phone bill was sent to Solenne San Jose of Bordeaux, France as a customer by her telephone company Bouygues Telecom.

Can you believe your phone bill for making calls and receiving calls can come up to this amount with 12 numbers of zeros? Of course the bill was a mistake which is equals to France annual economic output by 6,000 times or per year.

When the lady contacted the phone company support table to complain, sure she was told by the company staff to pay the amount and to settle the bill.

Other wise they will get it from her bank account according to her phone contract. On the other hand they offered installment payment plan too, but the lady declined all and asked for investigation.

Later the bill was found to be 117.21 Euros only and some clerical error had made the bill to be with so much of amount. The phone company had corrected the bill from 11,721,000,000,000,000 Euros to 117.21 Euros and waved the bill for that lady for her hardship.
