USBI And Alyon Technologies ripoff I Think They Are In This Together!! Fraudulent Telephone Charges for calls made with illegal modem auto-dialer Internet
*Consumer Suggestion: These frauds are working the exact same con!
*Author of original report: Talked with USBI & Verizon customer service people today!
I received my Verizon Phone bill yesterday & was shocked to see $189.44 in charges for INTERNATIONAL calls placed to Diego Garcia! Six calls were placed on November 29th, 2004.
The first call was at 5:41pm for 7 minutes = $15.86
Second call, 5:50pm, 2 minutes = $7.67
Third call, 5:52pm, 20 minutes = $37.17
Fourth call, 6:13pm, 20 minutes = $37.17
Fifth call, 6:35pm, 20 minutes = $37.17
Sixth call, 6:57pm, 20 minutes = $37.17
I recall having to delete numerous things from my computer around that time because, once again, my computer was "infected" with a slew of auto-dialer software. It took quite a bit of searching to find all the files & manually remove them all. I even had to edit a number of malicious entries made to the registry. I assumed that these were the work of Alyon Technologies - the ones who had victimized me a few times in the past & had sent me bills for hundred of dollars in unauthorized internet calls (calls placed by the auto-dialer while no one was home).
Do a search on Alyon - you will see thousands of complaints. I am guessing this is them again, just hiding behind another facade.
I guess I am once again forced to unplug my phone lines everytime I am not using them. Is this the only way to protect myself? Apparently security services, firewalls, virus protection, privacy services, spam & adware-eliminators do not help whatsoever. It boggles the mind how much garbage still easily gets through to my computer & creates so much havoc & aggravation.
I will be calling USBI & Verizon first thing in the morning to complain & demand these charges be removed. I am now prepared to deal with the rude, uncooperative representatives I expect will answer my calls. It doesn't matter how rude they are, I've delt with their BS before, and they still will not get one cent out of my pocket.
I will be filing complaints with all appropriate agencies. I will be contacting every TV news station & every newspaper to voice my complaints & let others know of these scams!!
