I could not figure out why my home phone bill was so costly when I only had local service on it.  So I went through the bill and removed privacy manager for $10 a month.  My bill should have been around $31-32 a month.  I discovered a charge for $14.95 on my bill.  I had reported this to my phone company a few months back and was surprised to find out OAN/INSTANT 411 had been billing my account every month.

I called them and was told that I had signed up for this directory assistance service over the internet in October 2009.  I immediately reported them to the Better Business Bureau and Consumer Protection at the Federal Trade Commission.  No sane person would pay $14.95 for a service they already get for $.45 (45 cents).  I am outraged!

This company had the gall to send me a copy of some bogus letter they supposedly mailed me.  I am pursuing this until they refund my money.
