That definitely doesn’t sound right. I’ve never heard of billing a wireless account for reporting downed or low hanging wires. I suggest you file an FCC or BBB complaint.

Reporting a low hanging line in the area shouldn't have been a service call on your account. And if you only have AT&T cell phone (no TV, internet, or landline), then that shouldn't have the option for any service call to begin with as is not a service wired to the home.

You will need to call AT&T to discuss the situation. This is a public forum of other customers so we cannot provide the exact help you need in this case. Failing that, the next step would be a BBB/FCC complaint.

Do you perhaps mean internet?  

Wireless is cell phones.

You request a dispatch for a line that does not belong to ATT, likely the local cable company low hanging wire.

You were billed for a dispatch, the tech responded to a problem that was not ATT wiring or equipment issue. 

Recommend calling the cable company that services your area. 

If the cable in question connects to a satellite dish, call the company that provided the dish… expect another bill as the dish and related wiring belongs to the home owner.

edit… I suspect the $108 is $99 service call plus sales tax.

That sounds very likely, and in my experience they tell you before they send someone out that they will charge you if it is not their(At&t) problem outside the house.
