Ring of Thieves
by Neil Weinberg
A former MCI billings manager sits in a federal prison, convicted of crimes he said he learned to commit while working for his former employer.


this one resulted in 600 million write off in 2000



I have a $132,000 bill for an $4k/mon oc3 that was installed less than a
year ago.

I have a $77,000 bill for UUNet bandwidth -- one months billing, according
to them -- for a 9meg ds3.

Heh, just today, I received a bill from WorldCom for $75,097.30, for
nothing in particular, that I can discern, which they claim to have been
the unpaid accumulation of some monthly service from May, 1999 through the
present. Um, yeah, right. :-)
