These fees are billed per statement, and you may incur multiple fees if your services are billed separately.

You must request this credit by calling or writing Cox Communications within 30 days of receipt of this bill. Pending review, you may withhold payment of the disputed amount and collection of those charges will be suspended. You have the right to not be billed for Interstate 900 calls that violate federal law. You may request blocking of 900 services. You may be blocked from calling a 900 number for failure to pay legitimate 900 call charges and the information service provider may seek collection of those charges.
