Warning-Phone Scam Richard La Dieu Rich LaDieu rladieu@dgs.dgsys.com neal

yep-- that's an old trick scam artists will use to get access to your phone line and make illegal long distance calls. you then get stuck with the bill. unless of course you are willing to fight the phone company.

someone tried that on my line last year. my wife, having earlier that week reported a phone problem did not suspect what was going on and did as requested.

after she hung up she could not make a phone call. so she used my data line to call me. i asked her why she was using my data line and she told me. i immediately had the line cut off by the phone company and i did not pay for the bills that were run up on the line in a matter of 20 minutes.

cheers
