Bango Fraud

So once again Fido, someone is being scammed using your company and you are doing nothing about it. I will be following the other Fido users and canceling my account as Bango does not even respond to my complaint. I am being charged $13.43 per month for something I never ordered or approved. Bad customer service.

I got a $98 bill from Bango from the last bill. Fido told me to contact Bango myself. How is it legal that they charge me without having my consent for 3rd partying billing? Dont they need my consent to agree to such an arrangement? 

Can we have a lawsuit similar to that in US?

Hey @cmloader , did you ever open an app and had a 🎁 gift box pop up and say you have a gift waiting, just enter your phone number? If so, that's a scam and once you enter your phone number your are automatically enrolled for fraudulent charges. This is very a very common problem with a lot of apps in both Google and Apple app stores. 

By entering your number it gives permission for billing through your carrier. There's a list of some android apps in the tips and tricks section that have been discovered as dangerous, take a look and see if you have any of them.

These companies don't just randomly access your account. Usually you've visited some site or dloaded an app that gave them access.

That is just not true.

From what my research shown, they just need your phone number. And a lot of people got those charges with sim they used with apple and charges from google play store which they dont have an account with.

We should have a lawsuit similar to that in US.
