What is TPI Billing ?

Sorry, I asked this but, typed it wrong...

 

I have charge a for 'TPI Billing AT&T' for about 13 dollars. What is that?

 

Thanks,

You should call in for specific ID. Some places  charge against telephone accounts.

I was thinking TPI might be the identity. Google found the generic term - Third Party Intermediary

thanks!

 

the billing is coming off my bank account and is debited. Could that be something to do with an extra service that is outsourced ? I guess I'll try and get the billing dept to tell me. I don't know what a third party might be doing. I know there was an extensive repair done recently, but, it was an AT&T truck that came.

 

Thanks again for answering.

No, it has nothing to do with your att service. It is a billing service att provide for others.

 

For example - Think of an ad that says donate to our cause - just dial 977. when you do that it triggers att to pay the advertiser & charge you on your bill.

 

Of course, there are other cases. Some fraudulent. Watch your credit card for such charges.

That is exactly what prompted the question!

 

So how do I trace it back the the source of the charge?

att billing support should have the answer. If you do not want to call, PM the customercare using this link - https://forums.att.com/t5/notes/privatenotespage/tab/compose/note-to-user-id/192773

@peskyme I located a company called TPI Billing Solutions.  According to their website, they bill for all different kinds of things such a toll (long distance) charges, etc.  Here is link to their website: http://www.tpibillingsolutions.com/industries_cable.php

 

You might want to call them and see if you can make any headway.  Their number is:  (918) 664-0144 or (800) 332-0023.

 

I have never heard of AT&T using any outside source to bill though.  Something sounds fishy to me.  Did you maybe sign up for any external service contract when you got U-verse?  I know some have reported when they purchased Uverse from door to door sales people or at locations other than an AT&T store or AT&T website they have slipped in Geek Squad maintenance for about the price your being billed.
