AT&T mobile customers — some 200,000 Arkansans — who were charged for unauthorized, third party text messages, are eligible for a refund  thanks to a settlement between the states, federal regulators and AT&T. 

The texts typically ran about $9 a month. The consumer restitution program will cost AT&T $80 million and will be administered by the Federal Trade Commission. AT&T will also pay $20 million to the states and $5 million to the federal government. Arkansas's share is $256,167. File AT&T Mobility refund claims at www.ftc.gov/att.

Here is today's announcement from Attorney General Dustin McDaniel.
