[ArsTech] AT&T collected millions from taxpayers in fraudulent charges, US says

"The complaint alleges that, out of fears that fraudulent call volume would drop after the registration deadline, AT&T knowingly adopted a non-compliant registration system that did not verify whether the user was located within the United States," Justice officials said in a press release. "The complaint further contends that AT&T continued to employ this system even with the knowledge that it facilitated use of IP Relay by fraudulent foreign callers, which accounted for up to 95 percent of AT&T’s call volume. The government’s complaint alleges that AT&T improperly billed the TRS (Telecommunications Relay Services) Fund for reimbursement of these calls and received millions of dollars in federal payments as a result."

You know I don't think anyone has summed up AT&T so nicely and curt before...

Profit > People, I wonder if that's in their mission statement, "To be the leading money hungry corporation in the world!" << LULz

Greed > People's Self Control...
