BBG Communications, Phone Scam San Ysidro California

Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

Found an alleged (LOCAL - and NOT International) very short call (!) made while in Amsterdam
charged (10 to 20 times normal pay phone rate and no warning) to my American Express card:

I learned from American Express that it has a standing agreement with BBG Communications to reverse charges immediately whenever a creditcard customer complains! Even without the customary investigation when disputing a charge. Long live American Express! Amex never fails me. Only takes one 2 minute phone call! As soon as Amex heard the BBG Communication name it reversed the charges!

BBG Communications apparently is counting on 9 out of 10 victims not bothering to complain.
The company's almost anonymous web site, (under Company), boasts to its clients, hotels, airports etc., the following:

"BBG has also developed a unique expertise in the billing and collection process to maximize profitability in person-to-person calls."

San Diego Better Business Bureau has a very unsatisfactory report on this not accredited company:

File a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission:$.startup?Z_ORG_CODE=PU01

To all victims of BBG Communications, 800-5762118: File your complaints! Eventually the FTC or a Class Action will put them out of business.
