On December 9th, I signed up via the web for Verizon Long Distance service. I already had their local service, wireless service, and DSL service. On December 10th and 12th, Verizion checked my credit without my permission. When I called and spoke to reps from the company, I was told that they didn't know why my credit was checked nor did they know how to fix it. On January 9, 2003 I sent a letter to Verizon asking them to fix the problem, but I haven't heard from them. Can companies be sued if if's representatives check your credit without your permission?
