FCC Approves New Rules Banning Phone Companies From ‘Slamming’ and ‘Cramming’ You

The practice of cramming is when shady phone companies add bogus charges to your bill, hoping that you don’t notice so that they can weasel a couple extra bucks from you at the end of the month. Meanwhile, slamming refers to how phone companies switch a customer’s service without their permission through misleading or otherwise deceitful tactics. – Sam Rutherford, Gizmodo http://gizmo.do/DtOLWZ4
