Do You Know What Cramming Is?

July 14th, 2011 · No Comments · News, Websites

According to the FCC (Federal Communications Commission), cramming is “the practice of placing unauthorized, misleading or deceptive charges on your telephone bill. Crammers rely on confusing telephone bills in an attempt to trick consumers into paying for services they did not authorize or receive, or that cost more than the consumer was led to believe.”  I heard about this on the Today Show this week and wanted to give you this link to the FCC site that advises us to check our bills carefully and question any charges we are unsure of or have not authorized.  Let the buyer beware!
