FTC Sues T-Mobile for Customer Billings

A big mess is brewing for T-Mobile. The Federal Trade Commission, or FTC, claims T-Mobile knowingly made hundreds of millions of dollars off its customers in bogus charges. The FTC filed a lawsuit against T-Mobile. It’s the first lawsuit of its kind against a wireless carrier. Federal regulators claim T-Mobile billed customers for subscriptions to premium text services for things like ten-dollar a month horoscopes and flirting tips. Often, those text services were never authorized by the customer. The FTC says, T-Mobile should have caught the scam after so many customers complained. Now, the FTC is demanding T-Mobile give refunds to customers for those premium text services.  T-Mobile responded in a statement, it calls the accusations “unfounded” and “without merit”.
