April 12 is deadline for bogus charges refund
TALLAHASSEE — Consumers who were allegedly billed for unauthorized charges by DADATA Inc. have until April 12 to file their claims. Individual refund checks are estimated to average $134 and may be as much as $700.
DADATA, based in Pinellas County, placed charges on telephone bills for voice mail, eFax and other services on behalf of numerous companies. In December, Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi announced a settlement with DADATA and others resolving allegations that they improperly charged customers. With the deadline approaching, the claims administrator mailed more than 12,000 reminder postcards to eligible consumers; only about 25 percent of them had filed claims.
