Month after month my AT&T cell service is charged by mblox.com for service I did not subscribe to. Call AT&T customer service and they remove the charges and claim to block further charges by this scammer. The scammer must know how to circumvent the block as the charges continue. AT&T should take action to protect their customers from these frauds. Looks like a class action will be required to get it done. The scammer collects a lot of money as many that get charged are not aware of the charge on the complicated bill. Looks like other carriers are also involved.
We had a story in this weekend's newsletter about an outfit called Consumer Telecom, another long distance scammer. The ironic thing is, they had called a friend of ours who just happens to be an Area Manager for AT&T in NC (and we just happened to be in his office when he got the call!). That was funny - but those scammers aren't funny at all.
Just got my bill yesterday and I had the charge of $9.99 from the same website www.mblox.com for crap I did download or subscribe to. Call cust service and spoke to someone who claimed he/she was in Florida. Still couldn't get them to understand. Going to call again and t/w supervisor but not sure will have any luck.
Maybe I did without realizing it, but I do not think I gave AT&T approval to allow just anyone to make charges to my service account. Why do they treat the billing as a charge account for these scammers?
