Don't think she made these calls

Eighty-six-year-old Arlene Hald says she never called a phone sex line.

And certainly didn't make $1,000 worth of sex calls.

The Washington state widow recently received a credit card bill addressed to her husband, Sylvester.

He died nearly 20 years ago.

Her family suspects it's a case of identity theft.

The billing company, Preferred Platinum Plan, is agreeing to remove the charges.

Hald's daughter, Peggy Rytych, says a second bill for 70 bucks was also sent.

Rytych says the credit card company is removing those charges too and promises never to send her mom another bill.
