PayTel Complaint - Biggest Government approved scam in history!
I was surprised to learn the only way to communicate with my loved one in jail was pay-tel. I went to the site, filled out ALL the information and then deposited money. I have yet to receive my first call, it hangs up in mid-message. I finally called pay-tel today & spoke with a person, turns out they had the wrong number listed.(I put in the correct#, I look it up every time) They charged my credit card 2 weeks ago. Can't wait to see how much they have charged me, for calls I didn't receive.(to the wrong#) I was told it would take 3 hrs for this change to post. I will update.....
This is such a scam, I have heard so many complaints, people feel powerless to do anything. I think half the problem is with incompetent employees. Since they are making SOOOO much money, they should spend some of it PROVIDING THE SERVICE THEY CHARGE FOR!
I saw another post about Paytel supporting politics. Isn't that a NO-NO?
If not please re-post current political person/party I would be happy to contribute any amount to put a STOP to this SCAM.......
This reminds me of the child support scam where they say they will get your back child support for the small fee of 40% of what is owed!
Very disappointed in Pay-tel. By tomorrow I will file forms on the DOJ site. Have to wait 3 hours for acct. to update.
