Slamming is the illegal practice of switching a consumer's traditional wireline telephone company for local, local toll, or long distance service without permission. The FCC's slamming rules help protect consumers from illegal switches, and provide a remedy if you've been slammed.
If you have been slammed but HAVE NOT paid the bill of the slamming company, you DO NOT have to pay the slamming company for up to 30 days after being slammed. You also do not have to pay your authorized telephone company for any charges for up to 30 days. After 30 days, you must pay your authorized company for service, but at its rates, not the slammer's rates.
If you have been slammed, but discover it after you HAVE paid the bill of the slamming company, the slamming company must pay your authorized company 150 percent of the charges you paid the slamming company. Out of this amount, your authorized company will reimburse you 50 percent of the charges you paid the slamming company. Or, you can ask your authorized company to recalculate and resend your bill using its rates instead of the slamming company's rates.

One of the many highlights from the Kansas City Chiefs' Week 2 win over the Los Angeles Chargers on 'Thursday Night Football' was Travis Kelce getting slammed to the turf on a tackle by Derwin James. On his 'New Heights' podcast, Kelce explained what it was like to be driven into the turf by James.
After reviewing the film, Kelce realized he also played a role in getting himself slammed. Kelce explained that he was unaware of where he was on the field. Kelce said he could have scored if he ran for the corner of the end zone, but he just to cut upfield. Because of that, he ran right into the clutches of James.
Rural communities are particularly vulnerable to the ravages of COVID-19. Residents of these areas tend to be poorer, older and have more chronic health conditions than those in urban areas and they have to travel farther for access to health care. As the number of COVID-19 cases increases all over rural America, the already financially strapped health care systems and medical professionals are being slammed.
Watch as a suspect commits a violent robbery on one woman after allegedly following her after she visited a bank and was later body slammed to the ground. *Editor's Note: Houston police edited the point where the woman was slammed to the ground.*
Houston Police said the woman was walking in front of the shopping center when the suspect grabbed her and tried to grab an envelope with cash in it. He ran off but came back seconds later after police believe he realized that he had the wrong envelope. It was then that the suspect picked the woman up and body slammed her to the pavement, grabbed the envelope with the cash and ran off.
To make maters worse, the woman has been left paralyzed after being body slammed to the pavement, according to Fox 26 Houston. The 44-year-old mother of three is now unable to walk or use the bathroom by herself and now has to use a wheelchair to get around and rely on her kids for help.

They ran onto the field in the second quarter when the Bucs were lining up for the extra point, which came after Leonard Fournette's 1-yard touchdown run. The kid didn't appear to get far before they were slammed into the turf by an adult security guard about twice their size. It was not shown on the broadcast (like last week's incident with a fan running onto the field at Levi's Stadium), but a fan at the game caught the very end of the incident on video and posted it on Twitter (there are a couple of salty words used). 041b061a72
