A Hódmezővásárhely man returning home from eye surgery was given quite a shock when he opened his phone bill and saw that it was for a total of Ft 2,744,000 (€9,400), or roughly half the amount that his apartment is worth, as opposed to the usual bill between Ft 3,000 and 4,000.

Károly Gyulafalvi and his wife, unsure of what to do after receiving the bill from ACN Communications Hungary Kft. contacted a family friend, who learned that the bill was a mistake.

According to the company, a machine error was to blame for the bad bill (and another one worth Ft 44,000), and they are currently in the process of notifying customers of the mistake. As for how many of these bills were mistakenly sent out, Paul Gagnier, ACN's director would not reveal the number.
