Complaint Review: Orbit Telecom
Orbit Telecom8201 Peters Road, Suite 1000 Plantation, Florida U.S.A.
Orbit Telecom Orbit Telecom allowed brother-in-law to scam me. Plantation Florida
Orbit should verify the names on the accounts of the phone numbers provided to them before approving new services. I noticed for several months that my phone bill had increased approx $15.00; I didn't think much about it at first since I had recently changed some services with my carrier; however, after three months I became suspicious and looked at my phone bill more closely. Bingo!
There was a page titled "Enhanced Services" on my phone bill. There was a charge for $14.95 being billed to me on behalf of Orbit Telecom. I called the number provided on the bill to inquire about the charges as they were unfamiliar w/ me. I was told that I had been paying for this service for three months and I was given the name of the subscriber (my brother-in-law).
I asked how this could happen w/o my authorization and I was told that all a person needs to subscribe is a phone number and email address There are no checks and balances other than checking that the phone number is a working/valid number that can be billed for the service. I asked Orbit Telecom to close the account and issue me a refund for the current billing. Ripped off!
