Headlines on 60 Minutes:
'60 Minutes' Exposes Long Distance Carriers Cheating Consumers -
This was one of the headlines on Sunday the 16th of December when I watched '60 Minutes'. The main part of the story was about "Slamming".
Slamming -- having your telephone company changed without your permission -- is on the rise. Most consumers and small businesses that are slammed do not realize it until they get their next telephone bill.
The story also mentioned that Overcharging for the "Universal Service Fund Tax" (USF) was a favorite NEW CHEAT of the Long Distance Companies.
Why do I care? This past year two of my 3 children have left home for various reasons. It is always a challenge to keep in touch because of the expense of Long Distance calling. I tried several things to make it as inexpensive as possible.
Personal 800 numbers
This was convenient for the children but at between 8-15 cents per minute not a good option on my bank account.
As many of you are probably aware this option is Way too expensive. Depending on the company and where the kids will be calling from, it can cost 10 to 50 cents per minute.
Pre-paid Calling Cards
I always thought that pre-paid cards were for students and people who didn't pay their phone bill. Nothing could be further from the truth. If you pay $50.00 for a 1000-minute card then your cost is 5 cents per minute period! No slamming, No USF Tax
If you are careful and buy the best cards, there will be no "Universal Service Fund Tax" or any other kind of tax except for the Sales Tax the first time you buy the card. When the card is recharged there will not be any sales tax.
The only hassle is dialing all those numbers before making your call. I got around the problem by pre-programming the 800 and my customer number in my phone. Now, all we do is touch a few keys before dialing, and I save major money on my Long Distance.
I liked the idea so much I want to offer it to you our members! We have made arrangements to offer pre-paid calling cards on our website. However, before going through the expense of setting it up, we would like to hear from you our members.

You Asked, We Delivered. Email Filtering!
FullNet is now beginning to filter email coming to fullnet.net, lawtonnet.net, and galstar.com email addresses. Over the next month, you should see a significant decrease in the number of spam messages you receive. For more information, here are some answers to typical questions:
Q: What is spam?
A: Spam is any email that is sent out in bulk to people that did not
request it. Also known as UCE (or Unsolicited Commercial Email), spam is
usually advertising a product or website and frequently will want you to
"Click Here" or "Call This Number". It is both a plague and a nuisance to
you and to service providers like us.
Q: What are you filtering?
A: We are filtering based on certain phrases that are usually found in spam
Q: How much does this cost?
A: We made a decision to offer this as a free value-added service to our
members. We recognize the importance of filtering and want to include it
as a standard feature.
Q: Will this stop all spam?
A: No. Due to the nature of spam, we are only able to filter some messages. There will probably be some that still get through, but you should see a significant decrease in how many. As we continue to improve the filtering process, you should see better results.
Q: What else can I do to stop spam?
A: In general, it is not wise to post your email address on a website or
newsgroup unless absolutely necessary. In addition, here is a good site
where you can get more information on spam and the fight against it:
Please contact us if you have any questions about our filtering or about
your email in general.
