Charged $400 for long distance calls

I am 80 years old and my wife and I have cell phone for emergencies. I was charged $400 in long distance calls made to Antigua, Morocco, Guatemala and the Dominican Republic that I did not make.  We have never called those countries and we certainly did NOT use our cell phones to call any of those countries, EVER.  Fido insists we did.  What can I do?  I feel like I am being extorted as they are threatening to cancel the lines. 

Has anyone else experienced a situation like this?  Please help.

I contacted Apple regarding your "virus" theory and they said they have never heard of such a thing.  There are no "glitches with iOS that can make ramdom calls.  Apple is pointing the finger back at you.  They are saying you should investigate the situaiton and find out how these calls are being made as you are the provider and it is your system that is being hacked to make these calls, not my iphone.

This is getting more ridiculous by the minute, now you're blaming Apple.  You should take responsibity as the credit card companies do when fraudulaent purchases are made with a stolen card.  Again, why would anyone own a cell phone knowing that at any time they could be liable for hundreds of dollars in long distance calls they did not make.  This is insane.  

Remove the charges from my invoice.

I will get a flip phone as soon as this nightmare is over.

Still no resolution in sight.  I see your tactics include avoidance and silence, not going to work here. 

Hello again,

No tactics. Simply was not perusing the forums during the last couple of hours...

At the risk of coming across as condescending once again, this is not customer service. This is the community forum. You are not going to find a resolution in these forums. As mentioned previously, if you would like to further discuss those charges, you would need to contact customer service. You have been provided with the methods of contacting customer service.

As for myself, I will bow out of this conversation as my insight not appreciated.

All the best.

Cheers
