This seemed to be the place the post this.

 

 

AT&T customers who had unauthorized third-party charges added to their bills will be getting their refunds soon, the Federal Trade Commission announced on Thursday.

More than 2.7 million AT&T customers who were charged up to $9.99 per month for "premium text message services" without their consent will be receiving a refund, mostly through bill credits, the FTC said. The average refund amount is $31.

Current AT&T customers can expect to see a credit on their bill within the next 75 days, while the more than 300,000 customers who jumped ship from AT&T since the so-called "cramming" scheme will be getting a check. All told, the FTC will dole out more than $88 million in refunds, or the most money ever returned to consumers in a mobile cramming case, the agency said.

checks in the mail. lol isn't it great all these big companys knowingly take advantage of so many ppl. If you multiply that 9.99 x 2.7 million customers for x amount of months. the money they made off of that = way more then what they have to shell out in penalty's . In a nut shell it does pay to screw over as much as you can , profit an then may a small penalty.
