Talk about Bill Shock! I can just hear the conversation in the T-Mobile call center now...

Subscriber: "What do you mean I bought 50,000 Farmville credits?!?! I only ordered 50! You need to take that off my bill now!"

T-Mobile rep: "Sir, I've checked and you have built the largest farm in Farmville; don't try to tell us that was 'organic' growth. You have to pay us $7500 for those credits, or we will have to interrupt your mobile service. And maybe burn down your barn."
