Billing Fraud

Putting a Stop to Billing Fraud

The term “billing fraud” encompasses a variety of unfair and deceptive acts relating to bills and billing practices, from unauthorized charges and hidden fees, to bait-and-switch schemes, false advertising, and more.

At Girard Gibbs, we represent victims of billing fraud to put a stop to these unlawful activities and hold companies accountable. We have challenged major banks, retailers, financial institutions, telecommunication companies, and others for fraudulent billing practices, recovering hundreds of millions of dollars for affected consumers nationwide.

For example, in the AT&T class action lawsuit, we sued on behalf of customers who found unauthorized charges on their bills, and ultimately delivered a settlement that provided cash reimbursements to affected telecom customers.
