Oregon man hit with $2 million cellphone bill
An Oregon man was told he owes Verizon more than $2 million for a cellphone bill – and the fiasco could cost him his home. Ken Slusher and his girlfriend bought a pair of phones last November and used the Verizon service for just a month before canceling due to billing issues.
“Yeah, it’s been very stressful to say the least,” Slusher told FOX 12. “The number of errors and the comedy of which they happened is astounding to me.”
Slusher thought the issue was behind him until he began receiving letters from collection agencies. That led him to check his Verizon account balance and hear a disturbing figure: $2,156,593.64.
Scheduled to close on a new house Monday, Slusher said his mortgage company won’t sign off on the loan he needs because the collection agencies are hounding him.
