Yet another BellSouth SCAM

Hello everyone, it's me. Again! Back in September I wrote about the BellSouth repair bill scam. Well, looks like they have yet another scam going! On the last scam I paid the $30 something bogus repair bill and then transferred my phone service to Time Warner. (They have been GREAT!) BellSouth called me and told me they were going to refund my $30 something I paid for the bogus repair bill but when the check came it was for just $9.15. O/k, it was worth it to be DONE with this company. (so I thought!)That last bill showed me with a $0.00 balance. Low and behold in yesterdays mail comes a bill for 92 cents! THREE MONTHS LATER! Up to this point I have heard nothing from them. I suppose this is one of those scams where they figure if you send out enough bills some poor suckers will pay it. I thought I was done with BellSouth forever but I guess they have different plans. WHAT A SCAM COMPANY!

Have someone from Mr. Ackermans office call me and identify themselves by their FULL name so they can get an earful.

Prospers.org? Isn't that the site where they post pictures of
unsuspecting Prosper borrowers and make obscene comments about them?

Very good response Harleycat! Some phone charges, like directory
assistance or certain long distance charges, are always billed a month
later, AFTER the actual phone call because guess what, you can't be
charged ahead of time for calls you have not made. .92 sounds like it
is either a directory assistance call, or some type of short long
ditance charge typically seen when you fax something long distance,
depending upon your per minute charge.

It's not a scam, there are times when calls made during a particular
billing cycle do not show up until one or two billing cycles later.
Does it say what this charge is for? Is it for a pro rated amount of
your monthly charge? Is it for a long distance call?

When I cancel a phone line, I always wait one billing cycle after the
final bill to see what charges and/or credits appear before I make
