AOL billing problems. Am I the only one?greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
My bill for Dec. Was $193. I am on the $21.95 unlimited access plan. Naturally I called and after more than an hour I was told I had used an 800 number to access AOL. I have Terminator and that program uses AOL which has the telephone #'s stored in the program. All I ever do is click and the number is dialed. NEVER use any other means of connecting.
Finally I am told they did have a problem but they would have to investigate my records and get back to me to see if I was affected. All I know is I have contacted my credit care co. and will get papers to dispute the charge.
AOL has more then 10,000,000 subscribers. I was overcharged $171. If 5,000,000 were overcharged $100, on average, that would be $500,000,000, What would be the interest on $500,000,000 for one month?
Dec. profits would be reallygood and not corrected until, maybe Feb.. In DEc-Jan AOL bought Time-Warner(?). The purchase could be finalized before the billing error is admitted to.
How many others out there were overbilled?

My AOL billing is fine so far. (thank goodness) Sorry to hear you are having a problem...always a hassle with stuff like this.
I recall about 2 yrs. ago, a friend of mine in Florida had a similar problem, and it turned out that somebody had accessed her account and was logging on with an 800# so it couldn't be traced as easily and it was billed to her. She did finally get it resolved. Good to change your password regularly.
