Pay up or else!

This story has really intriguied and amused me in equal parts.  It's also annoyed me.  The state of the world with these automated systems that go wrong so often and are then believed fully by the companies that run them.

In reality that should have been spotted, someone should have gone "this isn't right, oh yeah I forgot to carry the one", but no.  It went through the systems, passed on to debt collection, who probably had to approve the thing in the first place, and then made it to his doorstep.

I look forward to the legal action they are threatening him with, be interesting to hear them justify the bill....

P.S. well worth reading the comments as some people have done interesting maths!
