A French woman received a phone bill for nearly 12 quadrillion euros

Solenne San Jose, a former teaching assistant who lives in France, recently received a phone bill for  €11,721,000,000,000,000. Upon receiving the bill, she “almost had a heart attack.” There were so many zeroes I couldn’t even work out how much it was,” she told BBC

Doesn't surprise me that at first they said there was nothing they could do about it.  All these companies are the same.  They need brass knuckles and a bat conversing with the CEO.

The company later acknowledged the printing error, admitting that the true amount of the bill should have been €117.21. In the end, they retracted the bill completely.

Ya think?  Nice try on their part.  I wonder how many people would have cancelled their service if they hadn't retracted her bill and she went public with it?

eeeeewwwwwww!  I think there would have been a VERY big lawsuit from her family if that happened.  They really should have given her free service for a year or so to lessen the problem.

That was the bit that made me gape, them claiming that it was legit - what half baked bottom feeder had the gall to make that statement to the poor lady.

It's the attitude that they 'don't make mistakes' and she had to pay the bill that really annoys me. I've come into contact with this kind attitude recently, seems to be on the rise actually.
