I received the following email [edited to remove my personal data]. It indicated I was going to be charged. I had not heard of this company. I did not agree to these services. Accordingly, I did not try to access the services. Nor did I try to alert the company to their error.
They then billed me $14.95 via AT&T using a company called Enhanced Services Billing, Inc.
I have sent an email to customer service and will be calling them until this is resolved.
