“Why is my phone bill so high?”

“Can they charge me a ‘service charge’ on top of my monthly billing?”

“What is this “Universal Service Fee” on my bill every month?”

“I am paying extra for 6mbps internet speed.  Why is my system only at 3 all the time?”

“What is up with this extra charge for ‘linebacker’?  I never ordered that!”

Some of the worst industries for bogus, unlawful and excess charges and practices are the telephone and internet industries.  With billions of customers, a “small” overcharge or illegal fee of $5 adds up to millions of dollars of illegal profits.  But there are laws against this, and many of them require the company to not only refund your money, but also pay you a penalty and cover all attorney fees. 

You know how much you are paying for internet, and what speed tier you are supposed to be getting under your plan. Most providers offer a free speed test on-line. Take a moment to see if you are being charged MORE than you are getting.  Check your next billing to see if there are charges you don’t understand, or charges, services or fees you did not authorize. 

Other scams in these areas include companies that masquerade as the phone company or other utility, but are in fact not related.  They send notices that LOOK like a legitimate billing, but are a scam.  Others send notices for a legitimate service, but give the impression that you must agree to buy the service in order to continue your phone or internet.  These are all illegal. 

We have successfully sued many of the largest internet and telephone providers in the U.S., and many of these other outside companies, for these and other consumer violations, forcing them to stop unlawful charges and to repay customer millions of dollars.  We are recognized as one of the lead class action firms in this field, and have been retained as Special Counsel by the Ohio Attorney General. If you have any questions about a phone or internet charge, fee or practice, please call us now.  We will review, without charge, any issue to see if you have been improperly charged, or if you are not getting what you are paying for, and qualify to get money back.  IF you are a lawyer, call us for similar questions your clients ask you from time to time.  We are available for co-counsel on these, and most other class action matters.
