An Illinois grandmother could have her phone service shut off after she allegedly casts several hundred votes for "American Idol" in just an hour's time. Comcast sent 72-year-old Ilene Henry of Chicago a warning letter saying her phone service would be terminated. The utility cited dialing patterns inconsistent with a residential phone number as the reason for the warning.
For her part, Henry says she's simply got the voting and redialing process quote, "down to a science." Henry's granddaughter intervened and contacted the company to explain the situation, but did not receive a response. She then posted the story on Facebook, and not long after Comcast issued a statement saying the letter was sent to Mrs. Henry in error.
