$14 million settlement for AT&T
AT&T users in California can claim a portion of the $14 million settlement payout until October 29, 2022. The lawsuit found that added a $1.99 “administrative fee” to the bills of all post-paid wireless customers. The fee was never disclosed to customers and it allowed AT&T to charge more for their services without advertising a higher price.
The administrative fees were allegedly only visible after a customer signed up and received their first bill. Because of this, but the suit also claims the fees were “intentionally” buried on statements.
This scheme allowed AT&T to unfairly extract hundreds of millions of dollar from customers in California. The company denies the allegations but has agreed to pay the settlement to “avoid lengthy, expensive litigation.”
