A Hawaiian couple were shocked by an $18K electric bill!

According to a letter from their electric company, the couple had an unpaid balance of $18,000 for streetlights. “Because you own the street upon which the streetlights are located, Hawaii Electric believes that you are responsible for the payment of electric energy supplied to these streetlights.” However the couple had no idea they owned the street! “Somewhere in the contract said they owned the street and no one had even told them!” So Bec and Jeziel wanted to know what was your most shocking bill?

Five days after Michelle moved into her home, she received an electricity bill for $1200! “I was smart enough that I took photos of the meter reading before I moved in and documented everything. It took several weeks to convince the power company it wasn’t us.”

As a single mum, Lauren was receiving Centrelink payments. The day after she found out they owed her $1800, she got a $20 000 bill in the mail! “The woman I was on the phone with…She must have done something to my file, it wiped my entire file. They sent me a bill for all the money I’d received in the past 5 years. I thought something went wrong and I would have to pay $20 000!”
