Cellular provider T-Mobile is in hot water with the Federal Trade Commission. The reason? It allegedly turned a blind eye to crooks running a scam I warned you about a year ago.

The scam is called "cramming," and with it scammers can steal hundreds from you. In fact, it cost consumers in general up to $2 billion last year.

The FTC says T-Mobile made hundreds of millions letting scammers do this to customers and taking a cut. T-Mobile responded that it put a stop to cramming a year ago, has cracked down on any new cramming and is helping customers who were scammed get refunds.

Which should you believe? I say you find out for yourself by looking at your own bills - no matter what carrier you use, and even on landlines.
