I had this happen a few years ago. Some voicemail company showed up on
my phone bill. It was quite a hassle to get it off the bill. I think
there's now some way to tell your POTS provider to not accept charges
from any other company. There was a recent article in the SF Chronicle
about a similar situation. See


[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: On my cellular phone bill we discovered
that a company known as 'M-Qube' was charging me $9.95 _per month_ for
a 'subscription' of some kind; it had gone unnoticed for several
months until I got a chance to look at the bill personally, at which
point I called Cingular Wireless and they took it off the bill; they
never could explain what it was supposed to be, but they did credit
it back. PAT]
