Telecom USA Complaint - How do they justify this?
KANSAS -- My husband was driving back from Colorado to Illinois.
He stopped for the night in Hays, Kansas which is about 500 miles from home. He called me collect and we talked for 9.0 minutes. I got the bill yesterday from Telecom USA a Verizon Company, and almost died! The charges for 9.0 minutes is $26.90, state tax .13, local tax 3.84, Federal USF 2.61 = $33.48.
They also listed the call as originating from Vail, Colorado.
Lets get real. I know collect costs more, but how can they get away with this?
