    While BT should take a share of blame, I think ICSTIS have more to answer for. The problem of rogue dialers has been cropping up now and again for a good few yeas, yet ICSTIS did nothing, then about 9 months ago it suddenly became a far bigger problem. Its only now that ICSTIS are trying to do anything about the problem, if they had addressed the problem earlier a lot of people could have been saved from this scam.

    My friend works for Redstone, is he ever in for some stick over this.

    I avoided any problems like this with dial-up by using a discounted call system through a third party provider. The dialer programs do not know the prefix number that is used to access the system and so cannot change the connection as the call fails.
