Verizon’s $2 ‘Convenience Fee’ has caught the attention of the FCC
In a statement issued today, the FCC said, "On behalf of American consumers, we’re concerned about Verizon’s actions and are looking into the matter."
As of right now, you’re choices are, as previously reported, to enroll in Auto Pay, pay at a Verizon store, use a gift card, or murder the environment and re-start paper billing and send in the ‘ol check with an actual stamp, which many have vowed to do out of spite. Verizon may be getting more than it bargained for with the FCC on its heels. Stay tuned, the January 15th effective date is just around the corner.
