For past two weeks I have been trying to disconnect my AOL account. I did not know I had one. It was part of the promotional CD which I decided to try out – it was promising a few thousand hours for free, so I said why not. But somehow it ended up costing me around $150, nearly six months of charges though I have not used it once since the early flirtation. The charges were showing up on my phone bill. But I don’t have it as bad as some other folks, as reported by this story in The Washington Post. Check your phone bills please – you might be paying for something you don’t even know about!
