Evercom Complaint - Evercom The Biggest Legal Rip Off I've Ever Seen!
BARNSTABLE, MASSACHUSETTS -- Evercom is the only cellphone collect calling service allowed at the correctional facility that my fiancee is being held at. They accept payments of no less than $50 & for that you get 7-8, 15 minute phone calls...But you have no choice but to use Evercom, if you want to speak to your loved ones since they are the only service allowed they can charge whatever they want. How is this legal? Didn't we just break up monopolies on phone providers, cable companies etc? Since there is no competition allowed the rates aren't competitive, it's a legal rip off service, but I guess who cares about the families of those who are incarcerated, right? I mean we are the ones left behind to foot all the bills and raise the households on our own, god forbid we get a break & have a choice of phone services, you know how much $50 (+6.95 To pay the $50, imagine, the charge you $6.95 To accept your money!) Is to a single parent family w/ someone in jail over a civil (non criminal)incarceration? Evercom should be shut down!
