HOW TO GET AN 800# SO ALL THE PHREAKS CAN CALL THE BEST BBS'S IN THE WORLD AND AT&T PAYS FOR IT
This article is written by Tesla. It is in response to the filing of Federal Criminal Case #93-133 in the US DISTRICT COURT OF WESTERN PA "USA vs. Keith Maydak, et al" While Keith Maydak does not condone of this message, it is necessary for AT&T to know where we stand. These files are the response of the lies and scams that AT&T perpetrates throughout the country. It's time for hackers to take back the telephone system and give it to nice carriers like MCI, Cable & Wireless, LCI Intl', RCI, and all the small companies trying to compete with that $73,000,000,000 former monopoly. They are playing with your parents' money.
Please distribute this article everywhere. You may add any notes to the end, but please do not remove this notice.
Soon, very powerful files will be released that will result in the bankruptcy of AT&T.
So, wouldn't it be kool if the hacker board in your area had toll-free service? Wouldn't it be kool if it costed AT&T nearly 8 cents per minute of fees they had to pay BELL for the calls to it. Wouldn't it be kool if all the attempts produced millions of incomplete calls 'cuz all the hackers and phreaks set their auto-dialers to call it.
First, open up a magazine. See all those post-cards inside. Get one that has a nice PO BOX. Keep that address handy. Now, open up the telephone yellow pages. Pick out a medium sized company. Something not too big, not too small.
Get their address and phone number. Now, get the phone number to the best BBS. Call the operator and get the city and state it's located in. Now, call XXX-555-1212 and get the number for the closest AT&T office in that area.
1. Call the AT&T office in the area and write down the address.
2. Go to a payphone or block your ANI and dial 1-800-222-0400.
Tell the nice lady that you wanted to get an 800#. Save time, say, "I wanted the Readyline Service, I know all about it."
She'll ask you some information. Here's the response: YOUR NAME: Any name. Make one up. NAME OF COMPANY: You use the name from the phone book BILLING ADDRESS: Give the PO BOX of the post-card. SERVICE ADDRESS: Give the address of the AT&T office near the BBS PHONE NUMBER TO ROUTE THE 800#: THE BBS NUMBER YOUR CONTACT #: USE A # THAT DOESN'T ANSWER OR IS BUSY OR A PAY TELEPHONE Credit info: (they only sometimes ask) TYPE OF COMPANY: CORPORATION PRESIDENT'S NAME: MAKE ONE UP WHEN STARTED: Anywhere from 1956 to 1985 ANNUAL SALES: $150,000 - $2.3MM
Ask her to assign the number while you are on the telephone. Tell her you need it ASAP. It'll be up in a day or so.
AFTER THE NUMBER IS WORKING, POST IT ON EVERY BBS IN TOWN. MAKE SURE HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE USE IT.
AT&T will not harrass the callers of the 800#. If the BBS is like a multi-line system, the bill will be very high. SO, don't tell the SYSOP you did it 'cuz AT&T may try to contact him. He won't get in trouble, but some people are assholes and will narc. Since this is a kool way to phreak, don't blow it.
ALSO, consider getting 800#'s for compuserve, prodigy, telenet, etc… all those things that rack up message units. Give the numbers out. Millions of hackers will use them to log on creating $50-60,000 bills for AT&T to eat the loss.
AT&T: Another part of the I-SCAM
Why, when they were broken up for being an illegal monopoly, why were they able to keep all their assets. Shouldn't they have been given back to the people they stole from? Our parents. WE WANT OUR MONEY BACK AND WE WANT IT TODAY.
