Stolen mobiles are still causing victims "shock bills", in spite of government promises to cap call charges, Citizens Advice has said.


The watchdog said consumers have faced charges of up to £23,000 each, after thieves used their phones.


A year ago the culture secretary, then Maria Miller, promised that such charges would be capped at £50 by the Spring of 2014.


The government said it was waiting for the industry to agree the details.


Citizens Advice claimed as many as 160,000 people a year are hit by high call charges, following the theft of a mobile phone or a SIM card.

I'm just curious how calling high tariff calls benefits a would-be thief.


I'm guessing eastern European organized crime which ring high tariff services they themselves run knowing the call charges will be honored, motive and immediate pay-off allin one, not a good combination.
