HR Strange But True!
April 11, 2002

Swedish telecom operator Telia has cut off a mobile phone registered to its newly named chief executive designate, Anders Igel, due to an unpaid bill.

Igel's account "has been closed," Telia spokeswoman Marianne Laurell told Reuters. "If you don't pay on time you get a reminder and after that (if a bill remains unpaid) the subscription is cut off."

Igel, currently based in London as CEO of office supplies group Esselte, was not immediately available for comment.

The Swedish daily newspaper Aftonbladet said Igel's unpaid bill of $250 fell due on January 14. The paper said an official at Esselte, which has been paying for the subscription, had found documentation showing that the bill had been paid on January 10.
