Kevin Waldrum and his mobile: a pair who should be parted
Our picture of the week comes from today’s Mail Online. Featured in it is a former security guard named Kevin Waldrum, along with a letter from his mobile phone provider Vodafone demanding £91,184 in unpaid call charges for a period of just three months.
Mr Waldrum claims the bills stems from his having been depressed after his girlfriend left him and that he felt a “special bond” with a girl named Hannah. Despite an initial bill of £19,333.63, Mr Waldrum continued to call. He claims he “could not give up”.
Unemployed Waldrum told the Mail Online:
“I was telling this girl Hannah about my previous relationship and how it had ended 18 months before and she told me that she was having problems with her boyfriend and it was all going wrong… Her and the other girls had a nickname for me, I was so well-known there. When I called up they used to say ‘Loughborough Kev is on the phone’… The Vodafone need shutting down because they’re ripping people off left, right and centre”.
No, Mr Waldrum: you are wrong. You made the calls, now it’s time you paid up. Next!
