Submission + - A woman in France received a telephone bill of nearly 12 quadrillion Euros (bbc.co.uk)

Chrisq writes:

A woman in south-west France, who received a telephone bill of nearly 12 quadrillion euros, has had the real amount she owed waived — after the company admitted its mistake. Solenne San Jose, from Pessac outside Bordeaux, said she received a huge shock when she opened the bill for 11,721,000,000,000,000 euros (£9.4qn). This is nearly 6,000 times France's annual economic output.

If only she paid the bill Europe could have been out of recession and France the world's strongest economic power!
