I don't really remember, but I wanted more information on this. Logan and Wendell were talking on one of the Teks about how people that were billed incorrectly could file a lawsuit against the company. I think it was Wendell that said, "You had to get a new router and the phone call to the company said it would be free, but you got charged for it anyways. With proof, like a recording of the phone call and a copy of the billing, you could file a (civil?) lawsuit, that a lot of lawyers would be willing to jump on." I was wondering what specifically this situation would be called and what somebody has to do to take action on this situation. (If anyone knows which episode of the Tek this is in, that could also help)
Thanks for any help!
yeah ... they need a way for us to better search their episodes ...
Wendell (and the other TS staff) ... what good is a vast amount of facts and data (see it once and then it is lost in the archives) ... if it is too difficult to retrieve?
Edit ... it sounds like a very dedicated community member could do something with proper instruction and tools made available to them.
From what I've read, if it's a phone company they can be sued with this section
