Oh you done did it now, Verizon. Looks like that extra $2 surcharge fee for paying your Verizon bill online has finally gotten more than the attention of consumers but the FCC (who has been a busy boy this year) as well. An FCC official said today in a statement:
“On behalf of American consumers, we’re concerned about Verizon’s actions and are looking into the matter.”
The fee was supposed to hit customers on January 15th but looks like it could be dead in the water if the FCC rains down sweet justice on Big Red. Good ‘ol FCC, always lookin’ out for the little guy. Just goes to show you, if you yell loud enough, someone is bound will hear you.
