Heidi Heiser Alleges that She Lost Her Employment after Bringing up Worries Regarding Fraudulent Billing Systems

Heidi Heiser alleges that she lost her employment after bringing up worries regarding fraudulent billing systems and a so-called Wells Fargo-Like Scheme, according to the aforementioned lawsuit currently under review by attorneys Alan Rosca and James Booker.

The Complaint alleges that CenturyLink “allowed persons who had a personal incentive to add services or lines to customer accounts to falsely indicate on the CenturyLink system the approval by a customer of new lines or services.”

Said scheme allegedly would occasionally result in charges that had not been authorized by customers, according to the Complaint.

Heiser’s complaint also makes allegations that she became increasingly worried about what she saw at CenturyLink after news of Wells Fargo & Co.’s regulatory conflicts arose in September.

The Complaint further states that the alleged unauthorized fees amounted to “many millions” of dollars.
