Mobile Carriers Will Refund Current and Former Customers
Sprint and Verizon Wireless customers: You may be entitled to refunds for illegal charges "crammed" onto your bills over the past five years.
Both companies have agreed to pay back customers for letting third-party vendors charge them for unauthorized services like premium SMS or text messaging.
If you don't know whether you were billed for these services or not, you can view summaries of your charges on the claim submissions websites starting in July. Former customers may apply. See this Consumer Financial Protection Bureau blog post for the details.
