I recently returned from Barbados to find that I had been seriously ripped off by a loser company doing business as BBG COMMUNICATIONS!! These scam artists charged me a minimum of $41.91 per call to the U.S. under 5 minutes... when I checked my statement to find that 5 calls under 5 minutes cost me more than $200, I was livid!!!:( This company sucks. I called the customer service number and was lied to about the company's name... some other loser told me that they are called International Satellite Communications... WTF??? I am so disgusted, as the hotel that I was in, The Amaryllis Beach Resort, had cards on the nightstand prompting you to call an access number to be connected to what they call an "International Operator"..

The charges said nothing about the $14.95 "connection fee" per call and the $4.99-5.99 per minute charges... Oh, and let's not forget the fact that whether your call is 30 seconds or 3 minutes, YOU WILL BE CHARGED FOR A MINIMUM OF FIVE MINUTES!!! I am completely disgusted and appalled and will do my best to block these charges and to put these losers out of business!!! Always ask what the charges are before completing an international call, I will never rely on the honesty of businesses and/or individuals.
