Verizon refunds customers up to $15 million and that works out to $2 - 6 each customer

 

What was the problem?

 

- certain Verizon flip phones would go to the web browser and that would incur charges.  

 

- This would happen to  customers who didn't have a data plan.

 

- Sometimes even just pressing the back button on a phone would incur charges. 

 

What would happen if they complained

 

- Customers said if you tried to cancel, you were charged $1.99 for Internet access, according to the complaints.

 

- And when customers talked to Verizon about the charge, the company often refused to reverse the charges or discouraged them from blocking the data service on their phones.

- The NY Times and The Cleveland Plain Dealer in addition to other media investigated

 

- Verizon decided to refund customers before the FCC forced them to do it. 

 

How do the customers get their refund?

 

- Current customers will get their refund this month or next in their bill

 

- If you are no longer a Verizon customer, you'll get a check in the mail.
