T-Mobile CEO John Legere responded publicly to complaints filed against it by both the Federal Trade Commission and Federal Communications Commission today. Legere called the allegations "unfounded and without merit." Legere countered that T-Mobile has worked proactively to stop third-party companies from fraudulently charging its customers. He further explained how the company ceased allowing premium SMS services altogether, and set up the refund program last year. "We believe [the third-party] providers should be held accountable, and the FTC's lawsuit seeking to hold T-Mobile responsible for their acts is not only factually and legally unfounded, but also misdirected." The FTC and FCC allege T-Mobile allowed the unwanted premium service charges to continue for months despite evidence customers didn't subscribe to them. The government believes T-Mobile knowingly bilked consumers out of tens of millions of dollars.
