Was staying at Krystal resort in Cancun, Mexico and wanted to call home.  Cell phone would have cost $3/min, so I looked at the hotel room phone and saw that you could call Canada using toll free number and credit card for "reasonable rates" as it said on the phone.  Called the first time and got answering machine at home and left 2 minute message.  Called home half an hour later and talked to wife and kids for ten minutes. 

Never was I notified of the charges or rates I would pay for the calls.  I never talked to an operator. I stupidly assumed that "reasonable rates" would be less expensive than a cell phone call across borders.

When I checked my mastercard bill once I got home I was shocked to find two charges, one for $56.64 and another $97, for 1-800 calls from Mexico which I can only assume were for the 2 minute message and 10 minute call I made.  I can't believe that the resort is in league with this criminal organization and that this 'communications' business is even allowed to operate this modern day piracy. 

It is pure deception which preys on people assuming 'reasonable rates'.  If I had known the true cost I never would have even considered making the call.
