For reasons not understood in this corner, ANYONE over the age of 18 and living in your house can order certain telephone-related services and have them billed (through your phone company) to whoever pays your telephone bills.

Little, if any, verification is required.

Fortunately, my provider (SBC) offers "third-party blocking" which pre-emptively disallows such schemes. You may wish to look into it.

Yes, I intend to make this a Federal case. I'll begin by inquiring at the local Congressional office.
