$63,500 monthly mobile bill rings false

A man who racked up 400,000 yuan ($63,500) in mobile phone charges in one month has won compensation from a shop that installed malicious software on his phone to raise revenue.

A court in Zhongshan city, Guangdong province, ruled that the mobile phone shop should pay 10,000 yuan ($1,587) in compensation and offer a refund.

Mr Huang bought the mobile phone in October 2010 for only 490 yuan, but a month later, he had to pay 400,000 yuan in service charges.
