I was backed into a corner a few days ago- I had a big problem back at home, my cell phone wouldn't work, the wireless internet wasn't working correctly for any of the five other people staying here with me, and I absolutely needed to get hold of someone back at my house. I saw this little card advertising international calling, and thought "it's my only choice, guess it will have to do." I called, entered my information, and was able to get everything resolved in about 8 minutes. I now have a THREE separate charges pending on my account, for a total of $140usd! Are you...

BBG Communications
1658 Gailes Boulevard
San Diego, CA, 92154

RUDE, SCAM, RIP OFF, FRAUD.

This company is ripping people off everyday, letting deported ex-cons work with sensitive credit card information. If anybody reading this has used these services in the last year beware.

A few months ago an employee from this company was caught stealing private credit card information from people using this company's services. But he was allowed to work for days before he was fired. ABSOLUTLY NOTHING WAS DONE TO ALERT PEOPLE THAT THEIR CREDIT...

While travelling to United States via Frankfurt Germany I used BBG telephone to call to India. I used by credit cards for making the calls. Later I found out that for each of those calls (lasting less than one minute) I was charged $52.1 and $47. This is certainly outrageous and painful that the international airports can harbor scammed telephone companies like BBG
I have already raised dispute complaints with my credit cards to refuse payment to this company.
These guys also have the habit of asking the credit card number, expiry date and CVV number which I feel is completely unsecure...

I'm in the US Army and was in port in Germany, on my way home to the US. I needed to call home to update my loved ones about our arrival time. The pay phone would not take my calling card and only accepted credit card. The charges were not explained or displayed whatsoever. BBG showed up in my account once on the day I made the phone call and again a few days later. I was grossly overcharged $75 in each of these account listings. I heard that some people were able to get their money back by going directly to their bank. I am going to try. $150 bucks! And why was I charged again days later?!...

I was recently in Rome, Italy and left my cell phone at my hotel when I left for the airport. When I arrived at the airport I used one of the credit card pay phones to call the hotel and ask if my phone was there. I had to make this call twice and I'm now seeing six different charges pending on my credit card from BBG for a total of $190.24!!! I have called BBG Communications and the first thing they asked me for is my credit card number so they can look up the charges. Obviously, I wasn't comfortable handing them my card number in fear of them charging even MORE to my account! They said...

The calls were charged respectively 15.96, 15.99 and 27.92 € on my mastercard !!! Even the unreached recipient has been charged !!

It's a total shame and a big lack of serious of the Brussels Airport to let such pirate companies...

I tried using a pay phone at the Denver Airport to make a call to Omaha Nebraska when the call would not connect using quarters I used my card thinking it would be the same amount as what was asked from cash. I was never informed of the charges nor did I say I accepted them. That one minute call cost me $20 dollars. When I called the company to tell them I was not informed how much the call would cost I was told it was my fault because I did not ask. This is a complete scam. They deliberatly keep this information from the consumer because they know no one would finish the call. I will be disputing...

I made one phone call from the airport in Bali, Indonesia to Sydney, Australia. An operator told me that my VISA debit card would not work and so used my credit card instead, now I have charges on both, I emailed then to get it corrected and now they have put other charges on my credit card for calls that I could not have possibly made. I have had to put a block on my credit card until this whole things sorts itself out. This has turned out to be a very stressful time for one short phone all to home. Don't use BBG communications....
