Were You Billed for Unauthorized Charges or Fees On Your Phone Bill?

The placing of unauthorized, misleading or deceptive charges on a telephone bill has been referred to as cramming.  There are so many different types of charges and fees that can appear on a monthly telephone billing statement (including hidden charges on phone bills) that consumers can easily get confused and tricked into paying for things that they did not knowingly agree to order or purchase.

There are charges for making or receiving phone calls (such as per minute charges, per call charges, collect call charges, long distance charges, dial-around charges, toll charges, international charges, text messaging charges, directory assistance charges, etc.), charges for calling features (such as voicemail), charges for operator assisted calls, charges for directory assistance, regulatory fees, federal, state and local taxes, monthly fees for calling plans, equipment charges, late fees, cancellation or early termination fees and many, many other types of charges and fees.

    In a process known as “third-party billing,” a phone company places charges on a consumer’s bill for services offered by another company, often receiving a substantial percentage of the amount charged. When the charges are placed on the bill without the consumer’s authorization, it is known as “cramming.”
