48-1108. ADULT ENTERTAINMENT PAY-PER-TELEPHONE CALLS. (1) Except as provided in subsection (2) of this section, no charge of any nature for any adult entertainment pay-per-telephone call is valid and enforceable unless the consumer has first entered into a presubscription or comparable agreement to purchase the adult entertainment pay-per-telephone call. Any adult entertainment pay-per-telephone call charges incurred absent a presubscription or comparable agreement are void and unenforceable.
(2) The second and successive time a consumer receives a telephone bill that includes charges for an adult entertainment pay-per-telephone call, the charges, if incurred absent a presubscription or comparable agreement, are void and unenforceable if:
(a) The charges were incurred as the result of third-party fraud; or
(b) The bill is sent to the consumer by a telephone corporation as a holder in due course and, upon written notification to the applicable telephone corporation of the disputed charge, the telephone corporation is able to recourse the bill back to the information provider or its agent.
(3) Any information provider which, on its own, or through an agent, assign, or successor who seeks to collect a charge of any nature for an adult entertainment pay-per-telephone call that does not have a presubscription or comparable agreement evidencing the consumer’s agreement to purchase the call, has committed an unfair, unlawful and deceptive act or practice in trade and commerce for purposes of applying the Idaho consumer protection act, chapter 6, title 48, Idaho Code.
