AT&T Customers Give $88M In Refunds


U.S. wireless carrier AT&T is set to give back more than $88 million in refunds to customers who had unauthorized third-party charges added to their mobile bills, the Federal Trade Commission said Thursday. The Commission said the award represented the most money ever returned to customers in a mobile cramming case to date. The FTC indicated the refunds are related to 2014 settlements with AT&T and the companies behind two mobile cramming schemes, Tatto and Acquinity. According to the FTC's complaint in the matter, AT&T levied third-party charges – usually amounting to around $10 per month – for ringtones and text message subscriptions on customer accounts without their knowledge. The FTC alleged AT&T kept at least 35% of the fraudulent charges. According to the FTC, the refunds will go to some 2.7 million AT&T customers across all 50 states. The Commission said 2.5 million individuals getting refunds are current AT&T customers who will receive a bill credit within the next 75 days, while an additional 300,000 plus former customers will receive a check in the mail. The average refund is expected to amount to around $31, the FTC said As part of the settlement, the FTC said AT&T has also made changes to improve its third-party billing practices. “AT&T received a high volume of complaints related to mobile cramming prior to the FTC and other federal and state agencies stepping in on consumers’ behalf,” FTC Chairwoman Edith Ramirez said in a statement. “I am pleased that consumers are now being refunded their money and that AT&T has changed its mobile billing practices.”  Read more

Does Your Car Have WIFI?

Connect your car with WIFI

Does your car have wifi and do you use it?@ #WiFi #twitterpoll
Having Wifi in your car is pretty cool especially when you have kids who want to surf the web and use devices that don't have data plans.  Most new cars these days have the ability to plug in a SIM card directly into the dashboard.  This allows you to connect your navigation system and entire car.
