Received an email today about this company that I find to be extremely concerning. Have a read of the following attachments, and thoroughly check your phone bill each month for unauthorised additions.

www.consumeraffairs.co.../esbi.html

sharingthesecretoflife...g-inc.html

www.ftc.gov/os/2001/08...ngstip.pdf

www.ripoffreport.com/d...lling.aspx

www.bsgclearing.com/qu...your_bill/

I know there is a fair bit of reading in these links, but for your own peace of mind, I strongly suggest you battle through it all...it certainly appears that ESBI have cottoned on to a (maybe) legal way of ripping off / defrauding people.

I hope they, or their ideas, never find their way to Australia.

Cheers, Vince

Thanks for advising, Vince. Its amazing how vigilant one has to be these days. We also have blocked overseas and long-distance from our line to avoid similar scans. Just us a calling card.

Great post Vince, I went thru this 3 years ago with at&t as my long distance carrier and started getting extra charges on the bill. When I called them they told me to block all access to my account and it worked. Why they allow this is asinine.

Slim you might want to look at google voice, I signed up 3 years ago when it was grand central before google bought them out a year or 2 ago and I was grandfathered in. I was lucky at the start to have a local area code and hence all calls in the U.S. are free whether from a landline or cell phone or computer. Plus I have 2 relatives that live in France and Italy and it just cost me pennies to say hello. Might want to check it out, but make sure you can get a local area code first, if it isn't available, then wait until it is.
