Verizon Was Just Kidding About Charging You $3.50 To Pay Your Bill

Verizon was on the verge of charging landline, FiOS, and DSL customers $3.50 for the privilege of paying their bill by credit card, but has apparently reconsidered.

“We recently let you know that one-time payments using a credit/debit/ATM card would soon be processed by a vendor who would charge a $3.50 fee. This change will not take place as scheduled and we will notify you in advance of any future changes.”

That’s good news for customers, who will have $3.50 extra in their credit/debit/ATM accounts than expected. And better news for Verizon, which won’t lose any more customers than it already has due to the muck-up.
