Skype Complaint - Skype Price Jacking - Scam, Beware
SKYPE -- SKYPE IS TOTAL SCAM BEWARE: PRICE HIJACKING, ILLEGALLY CHARGING AMOUNTS, WRONG BILLING..... BEWARE OF SKYPE SCAM.
I have been using skype often for making pc to landline calls. I was very happy with quality of service . I used to charge 10 $ every time. Never cared to check account thinking every thing would be okay. But off late when I saw even for 5 minutes local north american call over 0.25 $ or more is deducted,or 2 minutes were charged as 0.11$ without any mathematical basis.
I got suspicious and started traceing last one month account, i found total random charges with wrong amount, hijacked price with no mathematical basis. ( time multipled by rate/minute) .
In many instaces per minute charges were 0.10 $ or even higher to the fancy of skype management-(FYI published price is 0.021$ per minute)
I immediately tried to contact them , but there was no phone or emails. Only solution was to send them mail by online form.
Fortunate enough to get reply after 4 days which was not an answer to my complaint, rather they just send me a link to check FAQ.(Misleading practice)
I was irritated with their response. Again I sent them email specifying issue of price jacking and over charging. Till today in last 2 weeks there is no second response from them.
Now I feel(confirm) Skype cheat customers with random charges,with jacked prices/minute.They Never respond to complaint or resolve anything. Price we eventually pay is much higher than local reliable services or phone cards.
