If You Use 900 Pay-Per-Call Services

You have rights we’d like you to know about: (under the

Federal Telephone Disclosure and Dispute Resolution Act)

900 Call Blocking is available through your local business


You have 60 days after receiving a bill to dispute 900 pay-

per-call errors. While the errors are in review, you have the

right to withhold payment for the disputed charges, and

no collection activity will be brought against you for those

charges. (If the charges are found legitimate, the long dis-

tance carrier or information provider may start a collection

process against your account.)

Your local and/or long distance service cannot be discon-

nected if you fail to pay your 900 charges. (If you do not

pay legitimate 900 charges, the carrier has the right to

block your 900 access.)

You should not be billed for pay-per-call services that do

not comply with federal laws and regulations.

If you have any questions about 900 pay-per-call services,

give us a call or stop by our office.
