WASHINGTON (Reuters) - AT&T Inc will pay $7.75 million in refunds and
fines after federal investigators found it allowed unauthorized
third-party charges related to phony directory-assistance service on
its customers' telephone bills, U.S. regulators said on Monday.

The fraud was uncovered by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration
while investigating two Ohio companies for drug-related crimes and
money laundering, the Federal Communications Commission said.
