Verizon Hits Florida Mom With $9,100 In Overage Charges

I'm just going to come right out and say it, there is no way on this planet that 570GB of data should cost you $9,000 in overage charges. I don't care what anyone says, there is no reason to charge anyone that kind of money for data. Sadly, Verizon still hasn't explained to this lady how or why her bill is sky high.

The $9,100 Verizon cellphone bill staggered and stumped Valarie Gerbus, causing a financial hit that could destroy her credit. For months, the mother of two from suburban Tampa paid $118 a month for her cellphone package that included 4 gigabytes of data, which she says she never exceeded. That changed last month when Verizon charged her with using an eye-gouging 569 gigabytes for a whopping $8,535.
