Aaaand Verizon scraps the fee … “customer feedback” and all … You’d think they’d have learned from BofA’s mistake. If titans of capitalism refuse to learn their lessons, how oh how can the free hand of the market ever work?
Verizon has announced that it’s going to start charging a $2 “convenience charge” for customers who pay their bills via credit or debit card, either online or via telephone.
I really hate shit like this. Who exactly is being convenienced here? I think it goes without saying that charging a customer a fee of any type so they can pay their freaking bill is a really bad idea. Hey Verizon: you know what would be really convenient? If I found another carrier.
