FTC Accuses T-Mobile of Making Millions Off Bogus Charges

In a complaint filed Tuesday, the FTC says the mobile phone provider billed consumers for subscriptions to "premium" texts such as $10-per-month horoscopes that were never authorized by the account holder. The FTC alleges that T-Mobile collected as much as 40 percent of the charges, even after being made aware that the subscriptions were scams.


I certainly don't condone false or unauthorized charges, but I have a hard time being too angry at T-Mobile considering they charge about a third of what AT&T and Verizon charge. I switched to T-Mobile about two years ago and have been nothing but happy with the results. They don't have the service area of an AT&T or Verizon, but they don't gouge you for phone service either.

Personally, I have never noticed one of these charges. It occurred to me that this might be good for AT&T and Verizon seeing as they have been losing a lot of customers to T-Mobile. I wonder how this will play out in the coming months?

What's new. Now how come they are getting on T-Mobiles case, maybe they didn't give enough campaign contributions or are disregarding rules in place. Either way, campaign bribes should take care of the problem.
