My family recived a call, caller ID was from AT&T.
They wanted to give me a "free" cell phone. The offer was declined.. but! My bill was for 54.90.
19.95 for AIRWAVES CALL MANAGER
34.95 for AIRWAVES CALL MANAGER SET UP FEE
This is from a Davis in Ft hood. It is my story as well.
I received my phone bill with almost $50.00 in charges that I have no idea what for. 1 of the charges was for OAN Servics which is also known as Global Airwaves. I was orginally contacted by Global trying to sell me a cell phone. We had just got off from work and was lying on my sofa, for somequiet time. I informed The gentleman whats the catch that I was not interested because I have a cell phone. He insisted and said he will send me a packet and it will have a 1-800# on it and I would have a year to accept the offer and nothing would be charged to me until I call that #. Needless to say my bill came in and there was $54.95 chg. from this company. I called SWB to reverse these charges back to these companies because I have no service nor have I used any services and to dispute the global airway comm
Except I harassed the compny for days until they aggreed to refund my money. I called every day at 8:00, 12:00 2:00 and 6:00 for eight days.
It should be said here that AT&T had ALREADY removed the charge from my account but I wanted this company to know THEY were to remove it also. Since telling my story I found two people who did NOT recive a refund simple becuase it was too much time to fight. So I fight for those that can't or will not.
I filed a complaint with the FCC, AT&T fraud dept, Sprint Fraud dept (that was who the phone was to come from) and our local news paper Watchdog.
