I was using a mobile with contract base and I had always high amount of bill bt I always paid tht bills on time for more than 1 years bt after that I was running through really bad situation like lost my job and was not able to make money and in the mean time I got my mobile bill around $500 and I couldn’t pay it. so I decided not pay bills any more and stopped using tht service, I am just couple of months back from the date that my contract will be finish bt still I am worried about the bill tht I am still getting and now after 4 to 5 months it has gone to $1500 that makes me think about any could be circumstances. I am on student visa and in 1 month I have to go to my home country for couple of months. So my question is…
With my current situation is it OK if I travel to overseas. Is there any chances of any problem on my way back to Melbourne ?
I’m assuming you are in the United States and owe the bill for your mobile phone service to a U.S. carrier. If that’s not correct then let me know what country you are living in.
There should be no issue with the travel into or out of the U.S. because of this debt.
The bill is escalating with because of additional fees and penalties being added to it but I’m more concerned that there may be fraudulent activity on your account that is increasing the balance.
A mobile phone carries more liability than a credit card. If someone clones your phone they can cause huge charges to appear on your bill that you would be responsible for unless you took swift action to notify the carrier.
How did your bill get to $500 and do you have some breakdown on why the bill is now $1,500?
