Oh, they'd be rescued for sure. Our tax dollars would be a great new revenue stream for them in addition to what we already pay them. Then they're execs would take nice retirement packages for a soft pillowy landing.
Most people won't even know how to fight this or that they didn't "use" that much bandwidth. Couple that with people who may only get charged a few bucks and just pay it...it all adds up to a great scheme to make profit.
Don't worry though, if they eventually get caught, they'll have to pay a fine that is a fraction of what they made from the practice...soo...ya know, justice.
