imphonics scam

my husband saw the free phone and we gave my name e-mail address and zip code and as we were filling in the forms we thought it strange all the try thisand that offers so we closed out the paper and never finished filling it in. Surprise 6 days later get an e-mail congrats on your new phone and it was with sprint and even had a cell phone number. Called imphonics customer service and as usual it was an outsource and the guy hardly spoke english and was very rude. Told me the phone was already on i ts way and just return it when I got it. Called fedex and they said a shipping label was issued but they did not have the phone so they would try to track it and stop the delivery. On wednesday there was a note from fedex they had tried to deliver it and so i called fedex back and they have returned the phone to sender. I called sprint's fraud dept and talked with a very nice guy who told me it was a scam and it would be taken care of and the order would be cancelled. Now I have a note from sprint telling me on 1 hand i have bad credit and my order has been denied and then i got a bill from sprint for my new account of $95 so i called back to the fraud dept and they had to go in and take care of the problem manually as all the bills are computer generated. The fraud guy said t-mobile and cingular are also being hit and they are going to try a class action suit as imphonics ilegally got my social etc so they could open this account on me. Help folks something has to be done about imphonics
