Verizon has more millions to pay

Verizon Wireless is the top mobile phone service provider in the United States. They also have been over charging their customers.

The company said it would pay out refunds to 15 million cell phone customers who were overcharged for mobile Internet calls.

Verizon Communications Inc. and Vodafone Group Pic will be shelling out the money. On tops of this they have agreed to pay the United States Treasury $25 million. This is a fine.

So the total so far is $52 million for the customers and the fine of $25 million making it a grand total of $77 million.

This is all over a $1.99 charge for internet use. What a publicity mess.
