AT&T — billing scam
Ok seriously, if I don't find out wtf is happening to my phone bill, my mom will kill me.
I'm 17 and the only phone internet I use is to check facebook time to time, and I'm only on like 5 minutes at a time.
And I don't know starting when but I started getting these weird texts that said I had renewed my account on some weird site so I was like "oh no I have not".
So I asked my mom to check my phone bill and ask if anything weird had been charged but she said it was fine and there was nothing out of the normal.
So I started ignoring those texts and what do you know, starting on 3/28/2010 at&t started charging my mom extra money for this stuff that I DID NOT USE.
Here are the falling stuff that got subscribed to my phone.
Subscription name Content Provider Charge
Playphone Subscription Pr PlayPhoneInc. 14.99
News Prediction Game Predicto 9.99
Downloads/Alerts MobilefunsterInc.com 19.99
ATT Navigator Telenav 9.99
The navigator, I might have activated on accident but the other stuff? wtf?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
So guess what. My phone bill jumped up to 210.15 dollars a month. Oh, have I said that I'M A STUDENT???
Oh yea, and my mom is a student too, and she's an imigrant so she can't legally work until I make her a citizen because I was born here so I am a citizen.
so the point is we live off her savings and the money the fam sends us.
And honestly, thats not a lot.
So my mom through a total b-fit and we're going to at&t tomorrow and she'll probably burn the place down if they don't give her some serious answers.
And I've seen a LOT of other complaints regarding the same stuff up there on this site.
So PLEASE SOMEBODY GIVE ME SOME ANSWERS.
