I was charged:
$14.95 on Oct 8 with tax = $16.07
$14.95 on Sept 7 with tax = $16.07
$14.95 on Aug 7 with tax = $16.07
On Oct 31, 2007 I called their customer service number 1-888-288-3724 that was on my phone bill. I spoke with a representative from ESBI, who informed me that someone using my name, home phone, and mailing address, but a false email and incorrect birth date , had signed me up for this service back in July 2007. I told the representative to reverse the fraudulent charges, and cancel this false account. I was told by the representative that the refund would be sent within 3-5 business days but the other two refunds would have to be processed by another department since they were from more than 30 days ago.
I contacted AT&T and told them to block all third party companies who have the ability to add charges on my phone bill without my consent or knowledge. AT&T is putting the charges on dispute so I will not be charged late fees for not paying them. I am waiting to see the results so far. I asked AT&T if this happens a lot, and the AT&T rep said it does. This is unacceptable and fraudulent, and this type of activity should be prosecuted.
I have also filed a report on Better Business Bureau (bbb.org).
