OKLAHOMA CITY -

Six Investigates is tracking more fallout in the government-subsidized cell phone program.

State regulators have filed complaints against three more companies operating in Oklahoma.

Attorneys for the Oklahoma Corporation Commission accuse Easy Wireless, True Wireless and Tag Mobile of signing a "significant" number of customers up for Lifeline cell phone service, when they live outside the eligible area--a clear violation of the rules.

The commission is asking the companies to pay back all the government money they received for those customers and possibly pay a $500 fine for each incident.

Two of those companies were the subject of a 6 Investigates expose, uncovering fraud in the Lifeline program.
