SAN FRANCISCO (11/24/2003) - My son tried to download some gaming hints online, but instead he got a self-installing program that dials out for access to porn sites. Then our phone bill showed two calls to Guinea-Bissau in West Africa costing $118. I explained to AT&T (Corp.) that this was a fraudulent charge. No one at our house physically dialed the number; our computer did. But AT&T insists that we made the call, so we have to pay. After some research, I found that many others have been taken in by this scam and have had to pay substantial bills to AT&T.
