Long Distance not Authorized

This morning i tried to fax some documents over from my at&t landline. We pay for long distance services. I got a message staying my long distance services were not Authorized and to call 1800-645-0005. We called and with no exaggeration were passed from operator to operator for no less than 8 hours. The folks at customer service said our phone number doesn't exist (even though we Were calling from it) and kept connecting us to wireless support which it is not. They also said that at&t does not provide landline phone service in NY. Then who have I been paying?? Can someone please help.

If they can't even find you account is probably why you're having problems. Try to report it online. You can try this link there's also this one
