‘I like freaked out’: Woman says changes to her phone bill she didn’t approve cost her thousands
POINCIANA, Fla. — A woman in Poinciana contacted Action 9 claiming she was the victim of a different kind of cellular fraud, where scammers charged her wireless account for new lines and thousands of dollars in new iPhones.
“In December it was like $2,300, and I like freaked out,” said Sueanne Ohara.
That’s how much Ohara said she saw on her AT&T bill last month. She said her account was on autopay and didn’t realize for several months that her usual $70 monthly charge had been jacked up to over $500.
