Has This Happened to You
Has anyone looked at your cell phone bill and noticed that you were being charged from a 3rd party such as M-Qube or Fun-mobile? It has happened to me twice. A few months ago I noticed 4 charges a $5.99. I didn't catch it the month before where I had another 4 charges of $5.99. I called Nextel and they told me that I had subscribed to a 3rd party wireless service and that they were billing me though nextel. Turns out, what it actually happens is these 3rd party's send you a text message. And if you DO NOT reply, you are automatically subscribed. You have to read the text message, then reply that you do not want the service. I had to call nextel and get it taken off, then I had to fight them to get the charges removed. I got my bill this month and it happened again on one of my other phones. I have to go through that whole thing again. I tried to call Sprint corporate and complain, but they don't give a ****. Their response was that, that's the way the system works, and that no matter how many junk text messages I get, it is my responsibility to read ALL of them, and reply to them if need be so that I don't get scammed.
Is that a bunch of **** or what?
