  Teletruth Helps Small Businesses Get Refunds for Missing Discounts In NJ

If you're a Small Business in New Jersey, You May be Entitled to a Refund Check from Verizon for Missing Discounts!

In 2003, we started our "Send Us Your Phone Bill" campaign. We discovered billing errors and trends that led to the filing of class actions. The first case was officially settled on July 2004. We found that approximately 40% of small businesses (under 5 lines) in New Jersey were missing their discounts --- and your firm could be one of these small businesses.

You will notice that because the discount is not broken-out as a line-item but placed under "Monthly Charges", there is no way the customer would know that the discount is missing.

....."This is just the tip of the iceberg," said Tom Allibone, director ofauditing for Teletruth, a consumer advocacy group that assisted the plaintiffs in the case. "This is a simple example of how their billing system doesn't work."
