If You Are Planning To Leave AT&T – READ THIS

If you are planning to leave AT&T,read this. This is a true story.

I made the switch to T-Mobile. They were really pleasant and helpful and I’m amazed at all the features I was missing by having AT&T.

I’m pretty ticked off at AT&T now as they just charged me for a month in advance for Oct 20-Nov 20. I signed up with T-Mobile On Friday night Oct 23. They ported over my # to my new phone.

Service was less expensive but had all sorts of additional features. I called AT&T today to let them know just to but the November they charged me back on my CC. I was informed that they don’t do that, they just KEEP YOUR MONEY.

So I said to the customer service rep, You mean you just charged my credit card for next month, I have NO Service with you but you get to keep my money for NOTHING. She said yes that’s right you should have canceled your account before we took the money.

To me that did NOT seem right. It’s not so much the hundred plus $$$ they took, but it’s the principle. What about poor people that could not afford that? I believe in treating people right and helping the little guy.

I checked with my attorney to see if that is legal. They didn’t think so either so will be following up on that.

I also think the Federal trade commission needs to hear about companies that keep your money for service they are not going to give. I am no longer connected to AT&T and they plan on keeping my money……. WRONG. I guess they don’t make enough billions of $$$.

I’m writing this blog to let everyone know……if you play on leaving AT&T, find out what day they bill you and leave on the day before or you will pay a month for nothing but AIR. That is just totally unethical.

T-Mobile told me if I didn’t the service I could come back and they would cancel it, and refund me all my money. That is a company that cares.

You can’t be too careful. Hackers are cleaver.

You can’t be too careful. Hackers are cleaver.

DO NOT ANSWER ANY MESSAGE FROM ME ON SKYPE UNTIL I GET MY ACCOUNT BACK. Hackers broke in.

I’m writing this so everyone is updated on what the creeps are doing now

I received the following message today from SKYPE:
Hi there XXXXXX (my name),

Registered email successfully changed
Registered email address successfully changed. We’ve updated your registered email address to

(an email address CLOSE to mine but NOT MINE)

. Visit your account (THIS WAS A CLICKABLE LINK) to review your changes at any time.

If you have not changed your email address, please contact Skype Customer Service with any questions as someone may have fraudulently gained access to your account.
Talk soon,
The people at Skype

STUPID ME..I KNOW BETTER , but glanced at the mlm911 address I used for accounts online. I clicked on the view my account and as soon as I clicked, I closed the browser realizing that was stupid to click. IMMEDIATELY my Skype online closed, so I realized that something was NOT right, so I went to Skype.com and looked for a # to call them. I could not find one so I called Ben. In talking to him I realized not only was my friends list at danger but also my CREDIT Card.

I had put in a credit card to buy minutes to call when I was in Europe and evidently Skype kept it online. I logged on to my credit card account and saw a long list of about 25 charges ALL Today from $10-$25 each ready to drop from Skype. I called my credit card company and shut down the account immediately.

Now I have to wait to get a new credit card.

I KNOW not to click links yet it happened so fast as I glanced at the email, I did it without thinking. DUH.

I also got a 2nd email from SKYPE saying I ordered something DUH obviously these jerks are busy at work. ( I HAVE FILED A REPORT WITH SKYPE)

Next steps

Here’s your Skype Number: +44 1264 98 xxxx. Share it with family and friends:

THIS IS THE HACKERS ASSIGNED # which i X’d.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

NEVER EVER CLICK ANY LINK NO MATTER What.

I also learned a new Facebook trick they are doing from my credit card security company. Hackers are sending messages to people saying HI beautiful, or hi cutie, or hi there, and a message saying they want to connect and get to know you.

When you connect with these people, they now have access to your friends as well. IF YOU DO NOT KNOW THEM DO NOT ACCEPT ANY FRIEND REQUEST and check your facebook privacy settings

It’s always wise to be careful. I’m one of the most cautious ever and yet I did a stupid thing today. Be advised to pay close attention. Make sure you set up your security on your FB account so only friends and family can see you.

I posted a note on my own Facebook page today direction on how to do that.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but you can’t be too careful these days.

Unnecessary Tools

One thing we all need to teach people is they have EVERYTHING they need to build a business. They do not need to buy into FANCY sounding tools, or systems. There is NO System out there that will make anyone rich overnight as they sleep. In fact, a lot of the things being pitched are scams.

There are a lot of gurus out there, pitching tools. They have good sales pitches but bottom line, if you want to succeed, don’t buy a bunch of unneeded tools. Work on yourself first. There are lots of free personal development books that can help you, and they are FREE to read from any library. If you’re not rich use the resources you have available to you and don’t be convinced you need to buy into all these unnecessary tools they are trying to sell you.

Building a business takes time and work. There are no shortcuts to success. If you see powerful ads, and videos telling you differently you’ll be wasting time and money, buying things like that. Those type things make a TON OF MONEY for those that invent them, but for you, you’ll be sold something, buy in and then pitched for tool # 2, and 3 and 4 and it will never end. You’ll be so distracted by all the stuff, your business will fall apart.

FREE can also be quite expensive, as they lead you in by giving you something FREE, and then sell you on the back end. I am sharing all this from vast experience, because I don’t want to see people out there thinking they can be rich over night, as they sleep. If you believe, that I’ll find some swamp land to sell you.

Just use common sense. Don’t be mislead. You can succeed without all those things. I did and if I did, so can you.
