On june 26th my father went into the hospital, I had to make 2 calls on a payphone
I did not have the right change of 50 cents so I used my credit card. I later found out that I had been charged 3 times in the amount of $5 for the use of the pay phone. The phone was owned by verizon which also charged me $7 and $6 for the 2 calls!!!

The payphone did not listed anything like these charges, it only said 50cents for local calls. I exspected I'd pay a surcharge or something say 10-50 cents but what they did both ILD and Verizon is unforgiveable. I have told my credit card to do a chargeback on everything...I don't know yet if it will work.

#1 Consumer Suggestion

Coin phones are for COIN calls! USE COINS not credit cards!! Otherwise you pay credit card rates!

AUTHOR: Clairifi - (U.S.A.)

Verizon and ILD are not to blame here.... payphones state the price of COIN calls. Operators quote the coin rate. It is a COIN phone. USE COINS if you need to use a COIN phone. Using a credit card places you at the mercy of the long distance carrier. If you want to find out the price of the call using a credit card, call the long distance operator stated on the phone. They are the ones who will be billing your credit card. Again though, always use coins at a coin phone. If you don't have change, get some, or buy a calling card.
