Crackdown on Cramming

20140711_cramming_fbDid you know that  cell phone carriers can profit up to 40 percent on fraudulent third-party fees on your bill?  We were shocked, too.  Not only do these third parties “cram” charges for services you never ordered onto your bill, but wireless carriers are taking a cut!

Recently, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) filed a federal lawsuit accusing T-Mobile of raking in hundreds of millions of dollars from these dishonest fees.

Now that the scam is finally making headlines, it’s time to act.  Sign our petition asking the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to do a thorough investigation of T-Mobile and strengthen consumer protections for cell phone bills.
