T-Mobile Working on a Settlement with FTC Over Cramming

Posted by at 11:43 am on October 22, 2014

T-Mobile has signaled to the Federal Trade Commission it is interested in reaching a settlement regarding accusations it unfairly profited from bogus charges foisted onto customers’ bills.

The FTC sued T-Mobile over its cramming¬†practices, despite T-Mobile’s attempts to preempt such legal action by banning premium content and offering refunds to customers. The company vehemently denied the FTC’s accusations at first, but has since altered its stance.

T-Mobile and the FTC have asked the lawsuit to be put on hold for a 90-day period while they discuss possible settlement terms.

“Our top priority is doing what’s right for our customers,” said a T-Mobile spokesperson in a statement. “T-Mobile and the FTC jointly filed for a continuance as a matter of ordinary course. We are actively processing refunds through our proactive refund program.”

AT&T recently settled with the FTC over similar charges for a total of $105 million.
