An emergency health situation at home required me to make some unexpected phone calls from out of state (From the midwest to CA).

The pay phone indicated I could use a credit card and I did so fully expecting to be charged a few dollars. The entry info was automated so I couldn't ask how much I was being charged. It turns out it was nearly $40 for a 6 minute call and $50 for a 12 minutes call. (I found out because my credit card company suspected fraudulent activity) Both calls were to California and were placed after 8 p.m. I contacted the customer service division of IOS Tel and they said the billing was correct and gave me a long list of prices and taxes.

A summary of one call:

$10.98 automated connection fee
$ 5.00 property impose (?)
$3.00 pay phone surcharge
$6.00 non suscriber fee
$1.75 billing fee
$6.93 tax
Rate $1.29 a minute

I do feel that this company is ripping people off. Had I had any idea of how exorbitant these fees would be I would not have used these services. Their representative told me I could have dialed 00 first to ask about charges but this was not obvious to a first time user and no one in their right mind would use this after they knew.

AT&T makes out with ILD phony charges

AUTHOR: milesgt - (United States of America)

I too have just found 10 15 15 800 charges on my AT&T bill.  They said they would put them in my file as contested, but if I didn't call ILD to dispute them ILD could send me to collections!

But let's look at where the money goes:

ILD - $4.95 for alleged 1 minute information call
AT&T  - $2.15 for USF and Carrier Admin Fee

Of course AT&T and I guess Verizon and the rest want to keep these guys in business.

Glad I don't have an AT&T iPhone too!  We've heard what they are overcharging for internet access...it was on 60 Minutes last Sunday.

They are all in bed together.

#2 General Comment

Not a rebuttal

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

Owner, your post is hardly a rebuttal to the report. All I saw was a sorry attempt to advertise your services. Perhaps the consumer shouldn't have used a service where the terms were not clear to him, perhaps you should make your terms more clear to someone else. Whatever the case is, your post is not a rebuttal. You offer no solution, no explanation, nothing...you just advertised your services.
