On my Verizon bill was a $13+ charge from an ESBI for a VoiceMail service I never subscribed to or authorized billing to. When I contacted Verizon they were kind enough to communicate with ESBI with me on a conference call and ESBI said another person authorized this, yet it was not I. ESBI said, they would credit my account. I don't understand how any charge can be put on to your Verizon phone bill without providing personal information to authorize such charges. ESBI tells me all a person needs is a phone number to make charges to your verizon account.

How can this be? How can Verizon (or any other carrier) allow third party billing when we live in a world of identity theft? Who can stop this? Who and/or what agency is going to do something about this to help the working people are are getting screwed constantly?

They do it because the can

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

Unfortunately this is the newest scam and no company that it happens through is questioning it.

It certainly is easier to get money out of a phone bill than trying to phish for your credit card info since more of the public is getting aware of identity theft.


I haven't even seen a site that asks for your phone number as billing info. That's what makes these phone company's lame excuses for not even checking out the biller more laughable.
