A small business owner received quite the shock when he opened his phone bill.

Chris Pohren runs a California travel agency.

He uses his phone lines to book his clients on trips.

Pohren says hackers used his call forwarding and international long distance to rack up 5,000 minutes of calls to Africa.

That left him with an $117,000 bill.

His phone carrier is working with him to resolve the mega charges.
