News: Woman Accidentally Pays £2,600 For Neil Diamond CD

Woman Accidentally Pays £2,600 For Neil Diamond CD

A woman was charged £2,600 for a Neil Diamond album after downloading the singer's 'Best Of' collection while on holiday in South Africa.

Katie Bryan, a maths teacher from Lighthorne, South Warwickshire, downloaded the £8.99 album unaware of the incurred roaming charges from mobile phone company Orange.

Bryan told Contactmusic: "It was a lunchtime get-together with my boyfriend's family at a house where we were staying near the Kruger National Park. I'd had a bit of wine... but not too much. People were playing music through their iPads or on phones through an iPod dock. Someone had put on the Traveling Wilburys but I just fancied hearing some Neil Diamond. I don't know why. He's more my boyfriend's musical taste and I'm more of a James Blunt fan."
