Time Almost Up to Claim Mobile Cramming Refund from Verizon, Sprint
December 31, 2015 marks the last day that some Sprint and Verizon customers may claim a refund.
Earlier this year in May, a judge ordered Sprint and Verizon to pay some of its customers for "mobile cramming," totaling $158 million.
The settlement followed an investigation that found Verizon and Sprint charged customers millions of dollars for premium third-party text message services. The companies typically levied fees of $9.99 a month for the services, according to the Federal Communication Commission (FCC). Services such as astrology, celebrity gossip, and sports tips were included in fine print, according to NBC News.
