Your point is well taken. However, this was never intended to be a "scam" or any other seedy moniker you wish to apply to it. AT&T solicited me these three times, and there was nothing on those checks which indicated that I would be prosecuted if I cashed the checks and did not allow them access to my line. If they were truly offended by the cashing of their generous check, all they would have had to have done is NOT honor it. But they chose to honor it. And send me another check. Three times. And it certainly is not my responsibility, nor should it be, to police the marketing practices of the phone companies. If I don't like their service, I go elsewhere. If they don't want me as a customer, frankly, they should quit asking me to be one. And finally they got the picture...and did.
