[1] Huge Phone Bills: 1.1 If your intended victim has a middle- or high-end answering machine or subscribes to a VMS service, you're in luck. These are usually endowed with the capability to remotely change the outgoing message tape (or memory, whatever) and are protected with a pathetic 2-4 digit code. Once you crack one of these, change the message going out so it says "This machine accepts ALL collect calls". Then get all your friends and relatives in Europe, south America, China, Antarctica, etc making collect calls to it. They don't have to say anything, just keep the line open. 1.2 The bud-box. It's not a box at all really and it's the k-neetest way for losers like your victim to phreak. What you do is hook up your modified phone to the victim's outside terminal box (not too difficult unless you're Capt. Kirk would do is call 1-976-PORN for a few minutes and then bugger off scared that someone might see them. This won't really cost your enemy too much and he'll have his box steel-plated next time you come back (Jas0n C0ckbyter Anders0n did this after someone went to his box to do an ANI with a bud-box to get his new phone number. It had just been changed because SOMEONE had posted about a 200 meg AE being at that number). What a vengeful phreak with brains would do is call the most expensive phone number he can possibly think of (there are some south Pacific Islands that are obscenely pricey to call; Marisat is a good ripoff too...) and instead of sticking around for weeks, just put a 600 ohm load (preferably a 10 cent resistor from Shack) across the box terminals, and leave it there. The line will stay open until someone starts to wonder what's going on, and by that time you'll be long gone and there'll be about $1,000,000,000,000 in Long Distance charges already billed. 1.3 Steal his Calling Card. Post it on every BBS and AE in the entire US of A. I don't need to say more about this and it's been done many times anyways. 1.4 Befriend him. Include him in your elite circle of hacker friends (none of your REAL contacts, just other losers...). Make him think he's just totally k-awesome. Then get him excited about blowing up his area code with a Blotto Box (ha ha ha). InSIST that every major phreak has Blotto Boxed their exchange at least once and that if he's ever going to be /<ool he should do the same. When he does it, call up Crime Stoppers... He won't destroy the NPA but there will be damage done to Telco and that will give your victim a record...and you'll be able to anonymously provide the pigs with a name, address, phone number, set of fingerprints, etc etc etc... (This prank inspired by "Get People To Kill Themselves") 1.5 Raid your enemy's mailbox daily. If you see a phone bill, take it. About 4 months later your enemy's phone line will be cut off for non-payment. Too bad he didn't get to see the "Final Notice".

Sorry this file's a bit cut-off but I had to translate it from WordStar to PCWrite (ASCII) and in the time it took I couldn't be bothered to add anything else. So sue me. -=( FIXER )=- 1988 (November now... look for 15 before 1989)
