Bloomberg Businessweek reported that Verizon Communications agreed to stop unwanted charges from third parties on customers’ landline telephone bills. The practice is known as cramming.

Third-party billing through landline telephone bills was a $2 billion industry in 2011. U.S. Senator Jay Rockefeller, chairman of the Commerce Committee, said that a large percentage appeared to be unauthorized.
Senator Rockefeller identified the problem: “Telephone customers have been tricked into paying for third-party services they didn’t want, or use, or even know they were being billed for.”
