Well, that didn’t take long! Verizon Wireless announced their intention to start charging customers a $2.00 monthly fee if they paid their bills using certain methods. They weren’t going to charge everyone the fee, just certain users.
When people heard this news they went ballistic! In less than one day they had over 95,000 signatures on petitions demanding Verizon Wireless stop the change from going into affect. And it worked!
At least for now Verizon Wireless will not be charging the fee. It’s a victory for the consumer and it shows the power customers have in a capitalistic world. Consumers stopped the BoA debit card fee a few months ago and now they’ve defeated Verizon.
