Ameritech Complaint - Ameritech scams consumers again!
DETROIT, MICHIGAN -- Im not exactly sure of the details of this situation, basically I had received a letter from Ameritech a little while back...it stated that Ameritech has lost a legal battle over their billing practices... and were being ordered to repay the consumers a certain amount. Well this week I received my "payment" from them... basically they gave out these little phone cards made out of paper... they are good for 12 minutes... cant be used for long distance, and they must be used from a local pay phone... can you believe it? and they of course must be used by this winter... so the only way consumers can get their money back, is to make minutes in local calls from pay phones outside in the winter!
They are probably banking of the fact that 80% of the consumers wont ever use this little paper card they gave out... so basically they wont have to repay the consumers! Scam artists...
