While I tried to get the charges dropped, other companies piled on to my acct. The additions were more than my original bill!
After getting this all straightened out, I ditched my landline for internet phone. Problem solved.

This scam sounds an awful like the one that was publicized last year involving unauthorized credit card charges for “reward” offers tacked onto online purchases. I can’t recall the exact term for these charges but it was theft, pure and simple. I wouldn’t be surprised if the same people who ran that scheme are behind this one as well. I have to agree Gaius_Baltar. Fines don’t seem to be enough of a deterrent. Prison time may be in order. And, as everyone knows, if there’s one thing we Americans are good at, it’s imprisoning people.

Heavy fines, long prison terms, and asset forfeitures. Let the CEOs see a few heads of their compatriots rolling down the aisle and the problem will soon stop.
