AT&T will pay out $88m to settle an FTC complaint that it allowed excessive "cramming" charges on customer bills. The US trade bod says that some 2.7 million customers will be getting a share of the $88m settlement it struck with the wireless carrier to end allegations that AT&T allowed third-party services to put excessive …
* Expect to hear similar tales next year from some other corporate scam. As long as there's no jail time or direct fines for Fortune 500 executives, nothing will ever change. America thinks its great, but this kind of pettiness hits that idea right out of the park....
* Its always interesting to meet people from Asia / South America who strive to one day live and work in the Greatest Country On Earth. They've no idea that safety in their own cities is often better and the cost of living can't compare with the lie that is America!
* Basically America screws over the little guy time and again, and only the rich can afford to sue and rectify the injustice.... Long live America? No! One day historians will look back and point to this as a series of tipping points in the 'Fall of Rome'....
Good ol' NSAT&T. This is just a diversion to have you look away from the many spy programs they gladly join or craft and sell to the government and shady police departments.
I divested from them in January 2016. I shall never be a customer, or a dupe for their spy operations, ever again.
Rot in Hell all NSAT&T employees at every level! You're all scum!
"...for all but 200,000 of the customers, payment in the settlement will come in the form of credits applied to their monthly bills, while the remainder of recipients will get a check in the mail".

You took money you were not entitled too and then earned interest on that money.
So by NOT refunding in cash they A: maintain customers because those customers have been credited so have been "locked in" and B: earn MORE interest by not refunding the actual $$.
EE (T-Mobile) once over charged me for 3 months on the row, when i questioned it i was told the £60 "would be automatically applied to my account" as a credit.
They were promptly told go fornicate off and after a few legal threats they refunded the money.
The money should ALWAYS be refunded. Not automatically applied as a credit like they are doing us some massive favour.
During the OPEC oil embargo of 1973-74 many gas stations in the US were found to be guilty of price gouging (yeah, that was illegal then: under Rep. President Richard Nixon). In many cases their punishment was to offer fuel at cut-rate prices until they'd made up for their profiteering.
