A friend of mine called me up to ask me a question, me being her go to guy on this stuff. She and her husband moved to Fort Worth recently, and got a bill from their old Austin address. It had some stange calls on it, like several to London to the tune of $1000. They don’t know anyone in London, and disputed the call with the phone company, who investigated it and said “yes, you did. Pay up.”
Is there a phone scam that allows someone to make calls through somebody else’s phone line, or a way that a phone company can and does misbill a phone call like this?
