Verizon Wireless was saying that 3G data roaming in Canada was 0.002 cents/KB when in fact it was 0.002 dollars/KB. The guy used about 37 MB and received a bill for ~$76 when he was expecting a bill for <$1. When he called VZW to inquire the representative was trying to say that 0.002 dollars = 0.002 cents. It was a failure of proper dimensional analysis.
