Verizon Wireless is charged in a putative class-action suit in federal court in New Jersey with “cramming,” the practice of allowing unauthorized charges from third-party companies to be added to its customers’ phone bills without verification of their authenticity.

The thrust of the suit, Considine v. Verizon Wireless , 2:11-cv-02461, is that the company lets outside vendors sell horoscopes, sports scores and other content to its subscribers on their mobile phones but has no way of knowing whether the purchases were authorized.
