X-pensive Phone Call?

So some guy’s birthday comes up and his housemate wants
to wish hiim a happy b-day from Costa Rica. Sounds pretty harmless, right? Sadly the calls don’t go through. But wait,
his credit card was charged almost $44 for each call?! WFT is goiing on here? Well, the ansewr guy over at Tripso explains.

Turns out amistake
was made. The phone company says that the guy got billed by accident for those large amounts. Accident? Right. Funny
how all such accidents always end up in favor of the company doing the billing.
