I'm surprised CA hasn't thought of this money making sham.

The top violators give us plenty of clues.

How does one accrue this without getting arrested after the first $50? While I agree this is stealing and they she be prosecuted, something does not seem right with these amounts.

How would you arrest them? There is no legal mechanism for that.

Do you care to elaborate? It's amazing how people make these broad statements without any backup.

Sending someone a bill two years after they use your service seems mob like.

And I bet they waived all of the fees if your story of events made sense.

It doesn't exist in TX law. It has to be approved by the legislature and NTTA is currently seeking their approval.

"Mob like"??? Give me a break. You used their service and they billed you for it, albeit a delayed bill.
