Fear and loathing in the 1-800 NPA




---------------------------------------
 
   FEAR AND LOATHING IN THE 1-800 NPA
 
         BY PICA MAN FOR POW!

---------------------------------------

FEB. 12/88
                                  
 MOST OF YOU ON THIS BOARD ARE INTER-
ESTED IN WARES AND THAT'S ABOUT IT. 
FAIR ENOUGH. THE PROBLEM COMES WHEN YOU
START HACKING 1-800 DIAL-UPS WITHOUT 
REALLY REALIZING WHAT YOU ARE GETTING
INTO. 

  SO, IN THE INTEREST OF KEEPING YOU 
PEOPLE OUT OF TROUBLE, I HAVE COMPILED
THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION TO HELP YOU
OUT. 

  NOTE: IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR ACTUAL
CODES, LOOK ELSEWHERE, THIS WILL ONLY 
SHOW YOU HOW TO FIND THEM.

---------------------------------------

  DIALUPS ARE ANY LOCAL OR 800 EXTENDED
OUTLET THAT ALLOWS INSTANT ACCESS TO 
ANY SERVICE SUCH AS MCI, SPRINT OR AT&T
AND FROM THERE ALLOWS YOU TO CALL 
(ALMOST) ANY LONG DISTANCE NUMBER. 
SOUNDS GREAT, DOESN'T IT?  BUT THERE
ARE SOME DANGERS, THE 2 BIG ONES ARE
ANI AND THE 1-800 BILL EXCLUSION.
                                      
  ANI: AUTOMATIC NUMBER IDENTIFICATION,
A SERVICE AVAILABLE ON ESS (ELECTRONIC 
SWITCHING SYSTEMS (LIKE IN VANCOUVER) 
THAT ALLOWS A PHONE SERVICE (LIKE A 
DIALUP) TO RECORD THE PHONE NUMBER THAT
ANY CERTAIN CODE WAS DIALED FROM. SOME
SERVICES DO NOT HAVE THE EQUIPMENT TO 
READ ANI PULSES YET, BUT YOU CAN NEVER
TELL UNTIL IT IS TOO LATE.  AND FOR 
THOSE OF YOU IN THE STATES, ALL 950 
NUMBERS ARE HOOKED UP TO ANI.

  1-800 BILL EXCLUSION: YOU SEE, WHEN 
IT COMES RIGHT DOWN TO IT, BC TEL ARE A
BUNCH OF ASSHOLES.  WHAT THEY DO IS 
RECORD EVERY 1-800 NUMBER YOU CALL, 
THEN ERASE THEM OFF YOUR BILL.  MEAN,
HUH?  AND IF YOU GO OVER A CERTAIN 
NUMBER OF CALLS, WHAMO YOU'RE ON THE 
HOT LIST.

  IF AFTER THIS YOU ARE STILL INTER-
ESTES IN USING THIS METHOD OF GAINING 
FREE LONG DISTANCE CALLS (I DO), THEN I
WILL SHOW YOU HOW TO HACK CODES.

  FIRST THING TO DO IS FIND A WORKING 
DIALUP NUMBER, YOU CAN DO THIS BY
SCANNING THE 1-800 PREFIX YOURSELF, OR 
MAYBE A BOARD IN YOUR AREA WILL HAVE 
THEM  POSTED.

  THEN THE PROBLEM IS DETERMINING A 
VALID AND WORKING CODE. THIS IS TYPIC-
ALLY FAIRLY EASY.  AFTER YOU HAVE 
RECIEVED A TONE FROM THE SERVICE, START
TYPING NUMBERS, THERE ARE SOME STANDARD
FORMATS YOU CAN TRY:


[CODE]-1-[NUMBER]
[CODE]-9-[NUMBER]
[CODE]-[NUMBER]
[NUMBER]-[CODE]


  AND TO MAKE MATTERS A LITTLE EASIER, 
HERE ARE THE LENGTHS OF CODES FOR 
VARIOUS SERVICES.

  MCI      - 5/6     ALLNET    - 6/10
  SPRINT   - 9       AT&T      - ?
  METRO    - 6       ITT       - 7/8
  SKYLINE  - 6/10    RCI       - ?
  US-TEL   - 4/6     LEXITEL   - ?
  WATSLINE - 8       CCSI      - ?
  TELENET  - 8       COMPANY X - 6

---------------------------------------

  A SHORT NOTE TO THOSE OF YOU WHO MAY
HAVE CREDIT CARD NUMBERS OR CALLING
CARD NUMBERS THEY WANT TO PHREAK WITH,
WATCH OUT! 

  IN MOST CASES THEY ARE ANI'D AND IF
YOU ARE CAUGHT YOU WILL BE CHARGED WITH
WIRE FRAUD AND CREDIT FRAUD...DOUBLE
TROUBLE.  BEST WAY TO AVOID GETTING
CAUGHT IS TO USE THESE CARDS FROM PAY
PHONES OR SOMEONE ELSES TELEPHONE.

---------------------------------------


  HERE ARE SOME NEAT NUMBERS TO PHREAK
TO, HAVE FUN.

---------------------------------------

  THE BEST WAY TO HACK CODES IS TO DO
SO FROM A PAY PHONE OR MAYBE SOMEONE
ELSES LINE, SINCE EVERY CALL YOU MAKE
TO 1-800 LINE IS LISTED ON YOUR BILL,
JUST USE YOUR OWN PHONE TO USE THE 
HACKED CODES.
                                       
  I SUPPOSE A LITTLE WARNING SHOULD BE 
GIVEN HERE, WHEN USING DIALUPS IT IS
BETTER TO USE DIFFERENT DIALUPS THAN 
DIFFERENT CODES ON THE SAME DIALUP, 
THERE IS SMALLER CHANCE OF GETTING 
CAUGHT.
                         
  IF YOU DO GET CAUGHT, DON'T PANIC, 
IN MOST CASES ALL THEY CAN DO IS FINE
YOU AND PERHAPS CONFISCATE YOUR
COMPUTER STUFF.  IN MOST CASES, THE OLD
"WELL, I SAW THE NUMBER ON A BOARD AND
I THOUGHT I'D TRY IT AND WELL I'M SORRY
I'LL NEVER DO IT AGAIN" PLOY WILL WORK.
BUT IF YOU HAVE MADE LIKE $2000 IN LD
CALLS ON A 1-800 NUMBER, THAT WON'T
WORK, IN THAT CASE, JUST PRAY YOUR
PARENTS DON'T GET FINED IN YOUR PLACE.
 

  I HOPE THIS FILE WILL KEEP YOU OUT OF
TROUBLE AND KEEP YOU FROM HUGE PHONE 
BILLS.
