Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

Incurred a 2 min $40.00 900 services bill on my Qwest phone bill from 12-26-2005.

Have a 2nd line for computer only. Integretel rep said that someone used the computer to dial-up and download some thing from the internet (oh! and by the way the user agreed to the $40 charge in a agreement).

Said that they would gladly block 900 calls billed from their company and that I needed to call Qwest to have a "full 900 data block" from each of my phone lines, especially the line for the computer. The rep also gave me instructions on how I could look up the web browser log to help narrow the source of the download.

Gave me and that via this web site I could find out who, what, where the download was from. Not so a disclaimer say basically there is no way for them to track and store this sort of info.

I say SCAM SCAM SCAM... Not paying. Notice the statement on your Qwest bill that "Neither local nor long distance services can be disconnected for nonpayment of these charges." However, you should defintely let Qwest know that you are disputing the charges.

Qwest gets $40 charge removed

AUTHOR: Daniel - (U.S.A.)

Qwest was nice enough to set up a 3 way call with Integretel. Instead of being connected to the 3 way call the Qwest rep came back on the line and said that Integretel will credit the charge effective within 30 days. Thank You Qwest.

Now I have to pay a higher than nomal phone bill for the mo. of Jan to avoid late charges. I have to wait up to two billing cycles to see that the $40 credit was applied.

Also, had Qwest place blocking on 900, 976 and collect calls. Each of these are used by some websites to get you $.

Also, got information from others on how to find and destroy the auto-dialer that may be on my pc from other members.

Thank you
