If you’re an AT&T customer, look out! You may be next in line for a cash back reward. Apparently, the giant phone company is the next one to ring in a giant settlement.

Yeah, we’re talking $105 million for cramming over 20-million customers.

According to the FTC, customers were unknowingly charged $9.99 for things like horoscopes, love tips, ring tones, wallpapers and trivia. Sort of like those annoying Jamster scams.

What’s more? The wireless company was also accused of keeping 35% of those fees, and not doing much to fix the problem. Even after customers called in their frustration.

Now AT&T may have to set up a hot line, to pay out all that cold cash!

Hey, you should probably go check your bill!
