Description

WAFB-TV (Baton Rouge) details abuses in the 900-number telephone industry; children, the illiterate and the mentally retarded rang up thousands of dollars in calls to steamy sex lines and other pay phone services; the series led the Public Service Commission to offer free phone-locking services to all Louisiana customers.
