D.C. to AT&T: Those Minutes Are Still Good!

2009 was a busy year for AT&T lawyers, and 2010 is getting off to an equally busy start.

Washington D.C.’s attorney general is going after the phone giant to recover any money customers have left on the company’s prepaid calling cards – but it won’t be returned to the consumer. The D.C. AG says the government has the right to claim the cash as “unclaimed property” if the customer has not used the card in three years, and if their last known address is in the nation’s capital.

That could add up to a lot of dough – believed to be anywhere from 5 to 20 percent of the amount that was put on the cards when they were sold.
