FTC Returns Nearly $20 Million in Additional Refunds to T-Mobile Customers

2014 Settlement for Third Party Charges on T-Moble Phone Bills
February 16, 2017

The Federal Trade Commission is mailing refund checks totaling nearly $20 million to more than 617,000 T-Mobile customers who had third-party charges added to their mobile bills. These refunds are the result of a 2014 settlement with T-Mobile which also involved all 50 states and the District of Columbia, as well as the Federal Communications Commission.

Consumers that have already applied for and received a refund from T-Mobile will not receive any additional refund.  These payments are for consumers that did not receive payments under the initial order.  The average check amount is $32. Recipients should deposit or cash checks within 60 days.

The FTC never requires people to pay money or provide account information to cash refund checks. If you have questions about the case, contact the FTC’s refund administrator at 1-844-746-4695.
