    IIRC, you are in the US. I can not say about your state but the State
    Attorney General in Illinois (unlike Ohio) really gets after rip-off
    artists like gd. We had switched long distance carriers nearly 8 years
    before to Farm Bureau. Sprint originally called asking us to pay our
    overdue (3 years) phone bill. I said I had never received a bill and if
    they would send me an itemized bill I would be happy to pay it.
    <Laughter>"We don't have records that go back that far." When I asked
    how they knew I owed it they asked "Are you going to pay?" I repeated my
    request for a statement and they hung up on me. This took place on 3
    separate occasions before they turned it over to a collection agency.

    Sprint did not "know" that we had switched LDC despite suddenly not
    having to send us a bill for 6 years 4 months. When they started a
    minimum monthly billing charge we had moved. The bills they were
    erroneously sending could not be forwarded - the move was over a year old.

    After a couple of letters to Sprint cc to the State Attorney General's
    office and a letter from the SAG to me cc to Sprint, Sprint wrote a
    letter of apology admitting that we did not owe them any money.

    When I had a problem with a hotel in Ohio (the website stated the
    waterpark was included - they charged us for it), I tried contacting the
    Ohio SAG office first and got absolutely no help. I took screen
    captures (recommend doing that if not already) of the pages stating the
    standard rates included 4 waterpark passes. The home page and the FAQ
    page both stated that was the case. I sent a letter (email is too easy
    to ignore) to the hotel cc to the corporate offices with both screen
    captures, got my money back and the website updated ;-)

    HTH - Good luck
