Verizon Charged Marine’s Widow an Early Termination Fee

In a decision that was reversed as soon as someone with half-a-brain in their PR department learned about it, Verizon charged a widow a $350 early termination fee. After the death of her marine husband, Michaela Brummund decided to move back to her home town to be with her family. Verizon doesn’t offer any coverage in the small town so Michaela tried to cancel her contract, only to be hit with an early termination fee. From the article: “‘I called them to cancel. I told them the situation with my husband. I even said I would provide a death certificate,’ Michaela said. Despite the circumstances, Verizon is imposing a $350 early termination fee.”
