I have the same issue with bango on my fido bills, which I have never purchased or bought anything through the google play apps that cost me money. I don't even know what is bango until I got billed on my fido. I am freaking out as it is costing me a lot of money for 3 charges on bango. Fido better fix this issue or else I'm going to cancel all my 7 products and services with Fido.

Hi there @Danny84

 

We can understand that it is never pleasant to receive a higher bill.

 

As explained by FidoVanessa, Bango is a service that charges for in-app purchases. They can either charge you directly on your credit card when you provide it in the app or through your provider which is what happened here. Only the user of the device can authorize these in-app purchases. 

 

Given that you have 7 lines in your account, I would suggest you to review all the devices of the users in your account to determine where the charges are coming from. On your invoice, you will be able to see which app was used which could be a good starting point.

 

If you need to block those tihrd party charges in the future, don't hesitate to reach our rep through our available servicing channels here.

 

Hope that helps.

this a data only line and i am using it for works/ business. there is no way I could possibly purchased something that expensive ($131) without knowing. Im running a business so I would like to think of my self as "Im not a stupid person" and I know the different between buying something through the apps or not, im not 5 years old who doesn't know the differents. and for all fido moderator STOP treatinf us like we are stupid and we don't know anything abou this. this when my 7 products with fido will be cancelled soon and I will go to another provider, being a loyal customer since 2014 with total of 7 products with fido and this how fido treating me? fido you just lost a customer!

Hi @emeraude17 , those 3rd party apps are quite damaging. I wrote a post in tips and tricks about these dangerous apps. Maybe this is what happened to you. Read this article about deceptive apps in the android store. From android authority https://freeurlshortener.net/ZGi

It seems I am having the same problem.  I am trying to cancell a fee, Fido is telling me I have to deal with Bango and Bango is telling me I have to cancell from my Google store but I have no aps in my Google Apps store.

Hey @anthonysman! Welcome to the community. Smiley

 

I'm sorry that you had to leave us because of this situation. 

 

Bango is a service that charges you to your invoice when you make in-app purchases, instead of paying right away with your credit card. This is why you see it on your Fido bill. Only the user of the device can authorize these in-app purchases. 

 

Since the charges are from a third party, you can only contest them with Bango directly. You can visit https://bango.com/contact and they should get back to you.
