When to use Request to Cancel Unauthorized Cell Phone Service
One of the more common account-related challenges that Americans face involves unauthorized cell phone service. In recent years, cell phones have become ubiquitous. They are so common that nearly every American adult has one. As a result, there is a high demand for service and a high volume of service provided. With so many cell phone service transactions occurring on a daily basis, mistakes are bound to be made by the companies that provide coverage. Similarly, some individuals are bound to try and take advantage of others who have the kinds of service they would like to obtain. When mistakes are made, identity theft results in fraudulent transactions and/or others seek to take advantage of your existing service, you can file a request to cancel unauthorized cell phone service in an effort to resolve the challenging situation at hand.
If you notice that unauthorized charges are appearing on your cell phone bill, submit a request to cancel unauthorized cell phone service as promptly as you can. The sooner you act, the less time unauthorized charges will appear on your statement. This form can serve as a means to seek resolution whether you have received a phone bill that is not yours, you have identified an unknown account on your credit report or you have simply noticed unauthorized charges on your ordinarily straightforward cell service statement.
It is important to keep a copy of your request for your records, whether or not it seems you may have been made a victim of identity theft. If your cell provider does not respond appropriately to your request, you may need to reference your request when filing a complaint with the Better Business Bureau. If you have been made a victim of identity theft, you may need to reference your request when speaking with law enforcement officials. Finally, you may need to reference this form if/when unauthorized charges appear on your account again.
