A French woman received a Trillion-euro phone bill (€11 721,000,000,000,000), which was ultimately corrected after her phone company admitted that it made a mistake.

“There were so many zeroes I couldn’t even work out how much it was,” Solenne San Jose said.

Finally, San Jose was able to convince the company to admit the problem, according to the news agency. According to, Bouygues Telecom the bill was actually only 117.21 euros ($151).

Earlier this year, it was reported that AT&T was seeking legal action against a Massachusetts businessman who racked up a nearly $1 million phone bill. The man said that his small company’s phone system was hacked in 2009 and made $900,000 worth of calls to Somalia, according to reports at the time.
