Orbit Telecom / Mr Smiley / Unauthorized Billing on AT&T
I have been desperately seeking employment and have visited a number of Job boards. In my search I have never knowingly accepted or signed up for any messaging service... However, $14.95 appeared on my AT&T bill this month from Orbit Telecom. I immediately called and they said it was purchased through MrSmiley.com. I have checked my browser history and have never visited that site. However, they have a name, home phone number, and e-mail address and somehow dropped the charges right onto my phone bill. Under protest they refunded the charge.
I then called AT&T and asked them to put a BLOCK on ANY unauthorized or 3rd party charges. She said she did... we shall see...
WATCH OUT! ALWAYS LOOK AT YOUR PHONE BILL!!!
