Man Outraged By Enormous Phone Bill From Verizon

An Oregon man received a surprising shock when he was harassed by bill collectors for a one-month Verizon cell phone bill over $2 million. Ken Slusher told KPTV News, "It's been very stressful to say the least." He also shared, with reporters, an audio of a computer reading off the amount he allegedly owes--$2,156,593.64. Slusher says the debacle started in November when he and his girlfriend opened up a Verizon account and purchased two phones. The couple only kept the service for one month because they started noticing really odd bills. Their first bill should have been for $120, but it was for $698 with a previous balance of $451.

After that, their next statement was for $9. Slusher stated "The number of errors and the comedy of which they happened is astounding to me." So, Slusher closed the account and thought it was over. Yet, he started getting calls from collection agencies demanding over $2,000. He then couldn't take any more the nonsense when his attempt to put an offer on a new home was hurt because of this fake, seven-digit debt. Verizon has since admitted to making a mistake but has not moved quickly enough to get it amended. On Tuesday evening, a Verizon spokesperson said they would look into the situation. By Wednesday evening, a company spokesperson said they had apologized to Slusher and "have resolved the issue to his satisfaction."
