    Sprint is trying to charge me for two international long distance
    calls made from my home number last year. I've never had Sprint as a
    long distance carrier, and have never approved any type of service
    from them. I've indicated to them that it must be a mistake since I've
    never had their services, but they basically said that their records
    show the calls were made, the payment is due and basically it's my
    responsibility.

    Can they do this!?!
    My concern is that these charges could potentially hurt my credit if I
    choose to ignore them?

    I don't even use my house phone for long distance since I have an good
    deal through my cellular service provider (Verizon). :]

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    Check the time/date of the calls. I bet you didnt even have that number when
    they occured! Sprint's billing is such a joke that they are usually
    late...months late.
    Sprint pulled this **** with me too. I had just moved in and 3 months later
    they want to charge me $35 for 2 calls to Israel. I told them I didnt make
    them and will not pay. Then the calls started comming from a machine DAILY,
    advising me to call Sprint ASAP as my bill was overdue.(BTW I have SBC for
    LD).I callblocked them.
    After a while I told them to send me a printed copy of the bill, they asked
    for my address! I told them to send it to the address on file.
    I called SBC and told them Im getting harassing calls..from Sprint, SBC
    contacted them and told them they were never MY carrier and to cease and
    desist..they finally did. No apologies, no admittance they did wrong..they
    just slinked away....the CHICKEN-**** comapny that they are.

    On both of these posts in this thread, there could be another reason, and
    that is you do the internet via dial-up (and no, I didn't check either of
    your IPs) and have malware loaded up on your computer that initiates
    unwanted dialups to sites unknown ...

    Thank you both. Actually I've lived here for two years, they said the
    calls were sometime in November last year. As far as the internet
    dial-up, I actually have cable modem through Cox communications, who
    also happens to be my phone service provider.
