Umberger claims he reported the errors to Sprint and the bills were corrected. In February 2010, Umberger warned Sprint if it continued to make errors, the contract would be terminated. In March 2010 the defendant sent another fraudulent bill to Umberger and refused to lower it to the correct amount.
