    ok well here it is...
    basically,on the 18th of nov,my bill came for my mobile phone and i hid that bill because it was 67pounds...excluding VAT. and now my parents are asking me where it is, i say i dont have it. My mum just 2 seconds ago rang up the company and asked where the bill was, they said they already sent it. Of courser i deny it and my mum believes me. The people say it is 67pounds and my mums facial expression was a bitlike this: :eek: she doesnt believe it could be that high and has now gone to the store to tell them they are wrong. But they're actually right. When she comes home,shes going to know thw truth and tell my dad. My dads going to kill me...WHAT DO I DOOOO?! IM SO SCARED!!!

    Work out how you can afford to repay it yourself and have a repayment plan (including interest) worked out for when they confront you.

    Also offer to get the phone restricted to incoming calls and emergancies only or to switch to a pay as you go contract.

    Accept the responsibility and try to come up with solutions and they will respect you for it - try to bury your head in the sand and they will treat you like a child.

    well because they don't know you've got a letter, they don't know you already knew it was £67 so you've only lied so far about that.
    When your mum gets back to definitely confirm that its £67, if i were you, i would act very shocked, very apologetic and promise you'll pay it back to them?
    but destroy the letter and do not throw it away at home!! hope this helps. dearyxxx

    Pah, that's nothing. I went to France for a week and took my parents' mobile with me (coz they're on a cheaper network, haha :rolleyes: ). The bill for that one week was £150. Boy, was i in sooo much trouble, and i've lived to tell the tale. Like they said, just act well surprised and offer to pay the excess (however much more it is than what it used to be. what terrrible grammar)

    Just blame the cat. Or your pesky little brother. Or your mum for giving birth to you in the first place.

    OMG things are looking gloomy

    I think the best solution is to act suprised like people have said, and say youll pay it back - but i dont know how you can dodge the fact that they sent u a bill and ure parents didnt get it and so ure the only other person who could have opened it and hid it ....

    Good luck!!
