A former teaching assistant was shocked to receive a phone bill for 11,721,000,000,000,000 Euros.
The unnamed woman who currently lives in France claimed that she "almost had a heart attack" when she opened the letter to view the total of the bill and discovered that she owed a figure so high that she couldn't even comprehend the amount. "There were so many zeroes I couldn’t even work out how much it was," she said.
Incredibly, the company responsible for issuing the obvious misprint initially maintained that they couldn't do anything about it and offered to set up installments for her to pay back the bill which came to a number 6,000 times the entire annual economic output of the country. Eventually though they acknowledged their mistake and retracted the demand.
