Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring is reminding consumers that the deadline to claim refunds from Sprint or Verizon is today. Consumers who have been “crammed” often had charges, typically $9.99 per month, for “premium” text message subscription services (also known as “PSMS” subscriptions) such as horoscopes, trivia, and sports scores that the consumers have never heard of or requested. As a result of the settlements, both companies are now required to get customer approval before charging for third-party messages. Current and former subscribers who had paid for unauthorized texts since July 1, 2010 can file a request no later than December 31, 2015 to get a refund. Verizon and Sprint both have online claim forms.
