Millions of Americans across the country can claim $100 from Verizon after it agreed to pay a $100 million settlement in a class action lawsuit.
$100 Million Settlement from Verizon
A class action lawsuit was filed against Verizon after the telecom was accused of misleading its customers. The plaintiff said that Verizon did not include an administrative charge in its advertised prices. However, the company agreed to pay $100 million but denied any wrongdoing.
In a published article in CNET, the plaintiff stated that Verizon “implemented, charged, and increased an administrative fee for postpaid wireless or data services in a deceptive and unfair manner.”
Meanwhile, Verizon spokesperson said, “The company clearly identifies and describes its wireless consumer Admin Charge multiple times during the sales transaction, as well as in its marketing, contracts, and billing. This charge helps our company recover certain regulatory compliance and network-related costs.”
