Complaint Review: Playphone.com
Playphone.complayphone.com Internet U.S.A.
Playphone.com got hit with cahrges I didn't agree to. Internet
The inconvenience of a 10 minute phone call to T-Mobile resolved the issue, but I won't receive the credit until the next bill. I"m sure that if I got this bogus charge that its likely that many more cellular customers got this charge as well. If I hadn't caught this, I would have likely had to pay the amount. This isn't about my money, its about an act of fraud plain and simple. IMagine these pricks adding $10.00 to ten million cell phone accounts and holding the money for one month, and earning the interest on this money. THis is a huge sume of money about $333,000 thousand. And by commiting an act of fraud.
Its time that people speak up and make some noise about stuff like this. If not heck maybe I should start a company just like playphone.com.
Oh I forgot to mention that customer care at T-Mobile actually admitted that they partner with these companies. So they are obviosly aware of the fraudulent activity. The guy also said that most phone companies partner with these types of companies. The next time you register somewhere online be careful as to which phone number you provide, you may be signing up for something that you aren't aware of.
I hope other people will speak up and be heard on this issue. I'm sure that if this happens a decent lawyler might take it as a class action lawsuit.
