Don’t get stuck with late fee

TAHLEQUAH — Editor, Daily Press:

I felt compelled to inform the people of the Tahlequah area of the practices in which [a local TV programming vendor] performs its billing style.

The bill, according to Carrie at the company’s 1-800 number, is due on the 26th day of every month. I assume everyone is supposed to know this. It was not reflected on the bill I received. However, the bill stated, “If late, pay by 4-9-2014,” which would lead a person to believe the bill is due by 4-8-2014.

I was charged a $8.95 fee on the 26th because my bill was not paid and another $8.95 fee on the 27th when my bill was paid. The first fee was to stop service and the second fee was to start the service again.

Many NSU students are not aware of billing practices. I encourage everyone receiving services from this company to thoroughly read your bill and know what you are paying.

Editor’s note: We removed the vendor’s name because we didn’t have a copy of the bill. This is good advice for any customer of any vendor.
