(WLNS) – Attorney General Bill Schuette says that his consumer protection team along with attorney generals of the other 49 states and the District of Columbia have reached a settlement with Sprint and Verizon.
The Sprint Corporation and Verizon Wireless settlement includes $158 million in payments. It also resolves allegations that Sprint and Verizon placed charges for third-party services on consumers’ cellphone bills that were not authorized by them.
It’s a practice known as “mobile cramming.”
Michigan is set to receive more than $500,000 from the settlement.
