USBI & One-Call Communications T/d/b/a Navicom And Opticom ripoff charges Carmel Indiana
*Consumer Comment: J.E. - Many of us have received these fraudulent charges from USBI...
Like you, I wonder why my local carrier allowed these calls to even go through when I specifically requested a block a few years ago. I guess when Bell Atlantic became Verizon, I needed to pursue this block again. Still, how can this be allowed? Should we address this problem with our local carrier?
Firewall Protection through your internet subscriber can block further USBI charges. It's worth the few dollars monthly.
Interestingly, when I spoke with A Warren 24 at One Call for those 3 calls, he said, "I see you have firewall protection now so you shouldn't be incurring anymore of these charges." I felt a violation of my privacy.
Please do NOT pay the bill. Pursue this with the FTC, FCC, CUB, BBB and your local police fraud unit. How can we rally together to convince Dateline or 60 Minutes pursue investigative reporting on this telecommunication scam to spare further fraud victims?
As the young lady from Massachusetts wrote, PERUSE YOUR PHONE BILL CAREFULLY! Check your bank statement too. As an aside-- I had similar online fraud charges on my bank account which the bank removed. I then changed my bank account and bank card. I also no longer make online purchases or surrender my card to an employee in a restaurant, gas station, etc. The bank officer told me this is where many fraud charges occur.
It is interesting to note that USBI's address is the same as One Call Communications, Navicom and Opticom, YET they have different phone numbers and appear to operate as separate billing entities. There must be some legal redress we can pursue to prevent further fraud.
Does anyone have any advice or further insights?
