AT&T Landline Third-Party Billing Class Action Lawsuit Settlement
Details on how to file a claim for the AT&T third-party billing settlement have arrived! If you were billed for third-party charges to your AT&T landline telephone bill between January 1, 2005 and January 14, 2013, you may be eligible to claim a full refund from the class action lawsuit settlement.
The AT&T third-party billing settlement will resolve a 2009 class action lawsuit (Nwabueze v. AT&T Inc.) that accuses AT&T of placing charges from third-party companies on its bills and collecting money for these charges, even though customers had not knowingly authorized the charges.
AT&T denies any wrongdoing, despite eliminating third-party billing on January 1, 2011.
A federal judge granted preliminary approval to the AT&T billing class action settlement in January 2013.
If you were billed for one of these unauthorized third-party charges, you can file a claim to receive a full refund (100%) of these charges. Some Class Members stand to receive hundreds of dollars or more, according to the class counsel. You can request a Billing Summary from AT&T free of charge that will show all third-party charges that appeared on your AT&T landline bill during the Class Period.
The only way to receive a refund is to submit a valid Claim Form by the deadline of December 2, 2013 or 30 days after you receive a Billing Summary in response to a timely request, whichever is later. You must include either a Billing Summary provided by AT&T as part of this Settlement and identify on that summary any charges you claim were not authorized or provide other supporting documents (e.g., copies of bills with identification of the charges you claim were not authorized).
