ILD TeleservicesDirectory assistance - phony charges to AT&T

Review updated:

My July bill had a fake calling charge for $7.47 - DIR ASST [protected] -
This is a scam, I called the number they had on my AT&T bill [protected] and the lady
took my address in a sec. to send me a refund and also to block my number from future calls.See the Top 10 Worst Complaints in Houston, TX
I asked her if this is spam and threatened to call FTC on them. She read a whole paragraph abt the
legality of their business.
I have requested all those documents through mail and will file a case with the FTC.

Please take a moment to report these occurances, under different names.

    My January AT&T bill showed a fake charge of $7.72 from ILD Teleservices, Inc. for Long Distance Directory Assistance, a call I never made. When I called the 800 number provided on my AT&T bill I was told that since I did not recognize the call they would send me a refund check for the amount. She went on to say that it was their policy, all refunds were to be in the form of a check. When I told them not to bother sending a check since I was not going to deposit or cash it, that I was simply not going to pay it, she got very ugly and told me to do whatever I wanted with the check but the charge would keep appearing on my AT&T bill.
    I will definetely report this incident to the FTC, since I realize what they want is to force people to cash or deposit their "refund checks" to get all the bank (account) information which gets stamped on the back of same.
