Malaysian man must pay every phone bill in the world

A Malaysian man has received a phone bill for $218,000,000,000,000.00 ($218 trillion). He has been given 10 days to pay up or face prosecution. Hell, I'd just write'em a check.

Apparently, the gentleman's father died recently. In clearing up his late father's affairs, he had the phone disconnected and paid the last bill of $23. Then he received a bill for the $218 trillion and change. The funny part here is that the article states,
It wasn't clear whether the bill was a mistake, or if Yahaya's father's phone line was used illegally after his death.
Used illegally to run up a $218 trillion phone bill? Where were they calling, Andromeda?
