PaymentOne, changed from eBilling after FTC fine, is still cramming charges on AT&T and Verizon bills for third parties, source of many scams. Charges can be disputed but a high percentage go unnoticed.
AT&T and Verizon are now accepting charges to customers by PaymentOne. PaymentOne was formerly eBillit. Q u o t e: in 2002 the US Federal Trade Commission forced the internet pay company e-Billit to refund $1.6 million to customers for fraudulent charges.
From J. Howard Beales III, Director of the FTC's Bureau of Consumer Protection: "This settlement serves notice to billing aggregators that if they support fraudulent activities, they will be held responsible for their actions. It also points to the importance of consumers filing fraud complaints with the FTC. By spotting trends among the consumer complaints in our database, we were able to identify the fraudulent activity.
