The big apple is suing T-mobile, accusing the company of scamming its customers.
In a lawsuit filed Wednesday against the nation’s third-largest wireless carrier, the city claims T-Mobile violated New York’s consumer protection law by allegedly selling used phones as new.
The allegations don’t stop there.
The city also claims T-Mobile has adopted other deceptive practices, including enrolling customers in expensive plans without their consent, lying about its refund policy, as well as overcharging customers and failing to provide them with legal receipts.
The lawsuit follows a year-long investigation into T-Mobile and its “Metro” stores, alleging the company violated consumer laws.
T-mobile tells USA Today it’s taking the allegations “Very seriously.”
