T-Mobile is the latest mobile operator to be forced to pay millions of dollars to settle complaints that it put false charges on customer bills.

The FTC announced that a deal had been reached with T-mobile on Friday.  In addition to refunding customers, T-Mobile will pay a $4.5 million fine to the Federal Communications Commission, as well as an additional $18 million in fines and penalties to attorney generals in every state plus the District of Columbia.

“Mobile cramming is an issue that has affected millions of American consumers,” FTC Chairwoman Edith Ramirez said in a statement. “Consumers should be able to trust that their mobile phone bills reflect the charges they authorized and nothing more.”
