Verizon Wireless just announced a new $2 fee for paying your bills online. Really. Even though paying via internet is fully automated.
It’s not just about the money (though if you’re like me, you don’t have extra cash to be sending to a giant phone company in order to pay your own bills.) It’s that Verizon thinks it can do anything to its customers, and that we’re powerless to stop it. (Spoiler alert: We’re not.)
And guess what? It turns out that Verizon paid zero federal income tax from 2008-2010. Actually, they got almost a billion dollars in rebates from taxpayers.
Sign this petition to tell Verizon Wireless to drop the fee for paying bills online.
