Getting a mobile bill when you've been abroad is always scary but we guess this girl got more of a shock than most when she realised she'd racked up £3,000 in charges!

Carissa Grice, 18, spent many a happy hour chatting to her friends on Facebook and Twitter during her two-week trip to Turkey, thinking she was using the hotel's WiFi.

However, the Greater Manchester-based lass had left her data roaming on and downloaded an eye-watering 630MB on her mum's £30-a-month contract.

Orange charged £8 for each MB over the allowance, which was taken by direct debit from her mum's account.

Carissa, who is trainee nail technician, told The Sun: "I wanted to die."

Thankfully, the company agreed to cut the bill to a much smaller £197.

Very understanding of them, we thought!
