NYC Slams T-Mobile Metro's Sales Tactics In Multipronged Lawsuit

After a yearlong investigation by its Department of Consumer and Worker Protection (DCWP), New York City yesterday filed a lawsuit in Manhattan Supreme Court Wednesday against T-Mobile and several Metro by T-Mobile brand dealers alleging abusive sales tactics at its stores.

“The cellphone service provider preyed on New Yorkers with weak credit history by selling used phones as new ones, enrolling victims in costly financing plans without their permission and overcharging them,” the city charges in a complaint that outlines “‘thousands’ of instances of rip-offs involving more than 50 stores and authorized dealers,” Shant Shahrigian reports for the New York Daily News.

I have T-Mobile but I bought my phone at Fry's Electronics. I researched the mobile phone companies and decided T-Mobile was my best bet. I didn't want to buy from a company's store because they had a limited choice of phones and they'd be pushing me by buy their most expensive plan instead of the one I want. I can resist sell tactics but I don't like it when I tell the salesperson I know what I want and they try to upsell to something I don't want or need. I'll tell the no and if they keep it up I leave and go somewhere else to buy what I want.
