A Chicago man wants to be reimbursed of more than a year’s worth of “hidden charges” of $5 per month. He filed a class-action lawsuit to get his money back, and more.
Jeffrey Hickel, who is a Chicago-area accountant, says he didn’t notice the extra charge for a 411-type service until he’d been with AT&T for more than a year.
