I don't know if anyone can help here.  I was billed on my local phone bill for 
a long distance carrier I have never heard of and never signed up for.  I 
called them and they said I signed up on Nov 19th and the installation was made 
on Jan 27 for a total of $11.50.  They said they had my email, my Mother's 
maiden name etc and they would not credit back the fees.  I called my local 
phone company - Sprint - and they said they would put the charges on dispute 
and gave me 30 days to get it resolved.  If I don't get it resolved and don't 
pay it - Sprint says they would turn my phone off.

Who can I complain to about this if I don't get this resolved with the LD 
company - VOX Populi - ?

On Oct 30th only a few days earlier I was charged $75 and sent a bill for a 
porno download and my phone nr was used.  I got this resolved - that is why I 
think it is hackers.

How can I prevent something like this from happening in the future?  Is this 
what a Fire Wall does?

appreciate any help here
