WHEN: Saturday, December 24, 2005 at 2:30 pm.
WHO: Carl Mayer with EBENEEZER SCROOGE AND TINY TIM.
Carl Mayer, an attorney and consumer advocate, will hold a press conference on the public right-of-way outside of the Princeton, NJ home of MCI Chairman Nicholas Katzenbach. Mayer will present to Katzenbach the First Annual Bah Humbug Corporate Scrooge Award. The award is on behalf of The Untouchables Group, a public interest firm founded by Mayer.
“’Bah, Humbug’ is what MCI says to its customers while giving them the worst consumer phone service in the nation,” said Mayer. “This award underscores that MCI is still a recidivist, law-breaking corporation.”
In a new tactic, Mayer will place Katzenbach’s listed phone and address on the World Wide Web and encourage consumers to politely write and call Katzenbach to fix MCI’s broken and illegal customer service.
Mayer will release a letter asking the New Jersey Attorney General to stop the merger of MCI and Verizon.
