FTC Suing T-Mobile Over Bogus Charges

Posted Tuesday, July 1st 2014 @ 2pm

(Washington, DC)  --  The Federal Trade Commission is suing T-Mobile over bogus charges on phone bills.  The lawsuit alleges the wireless provider added millions of dollars of unauthorized charges onto customer's bills.  The charges were for subscriptions for services like celebrity gossip or horoscopes, which often cost about ten bucks a month.  The FTC says T-Mobile was refunding up to 40% of the charges in a given month and that should have alerted the wireless company the charges were bogus.
