Ken Slusher says he received such a large bill that it would be funny, if it wasn’t creating problems for them to finance a new home. Their cell phone provider sent them a bill for $2 million for one month of service. He says the problems began when they switched carriers, and the first bill was six times higher than they expected and showed a previous balance of $451. They thought they had resolved the issues, but cancelled the service anyway. After they returned the phones, the $2 million dollar bill arrived. Slusher says everyone agrees there has been a mistake, but collectors have begun calling them, and their bank will not approve a mortgage on a new home they want to purchase. A spokesperson for the cellular company says the issue is being resolved, but Slusher said, “The number of errors and the comedy of which they happened is astounding to me.”—Jim L.
