Inmate Calls Connect False advertising regarding local numbers for inmates internet South Carolina
I called Inmate Calls Connect and received a number to use for my loved one that is in prison. Their advertisement lead me to believe this would be a local number and would save my loved one money on phone calls.
The number I was given was not working, so I called back and reported the problem. A few days later I was given another number to give to my family member. The new number was not a local number so there was no savings by using the number. I specifically asked if the new number was local to the area of incarceration and was told that it WAS a local number.
I called and emailed ICC a number of times trying to resolve the situation, to no avail. Finally I found another company that was very helpful and did provide a local number. I respectfully asked for a refund from ICC since I did not receive what was promised. They never called me back - instead they contacted me through email. Many days elapsed between emails and I was told they do not guarantee local numbers but instead they advertise they could provide a number closer to the facility of my loved one. That was not made clear to me when I ordered the service. They refused to refund my money, so I definitely do not recommend them.
The company I recommend is Cons Call Home. When you deal with them you can actually speak to someone and resolve any issues that are of concern.
