My current AT&T local phone service bill included a charge for $8.16 from Var Tec Communications for "Long Distance" services. I have NEVER heard of Var Tec or signed any agreement for thier services.
When I called them I got a service rep.
who barely spoke English.
After literally SCREAMING at her and asking for her supervisor she suddenly spoke just fine and agreed to give me a "credit" for the billing.
This appears to be a scam by AT&T and Var Tec to gull unsuspecting consumers into paying for nothing without understanding that it is just a scam.
