We were recently caught out by a missed flight in Stockholm and had to call to Australia and USA to resolve the flight problems.
We didnt have any local currency to call with and the only option was to use the Credit card, the other option on the phone in the airport. (No indication as to the price... not that anyone could foresee the potential charges one is about to be charges).
On our return home to Australia we found charges for 4 calls under 5minutes each to total $301... Holy [censored] batman!!!
After searching the internet for this fraudulent company we realised there have been many ppl scammed by this disreputable company.
If you're ever in a hotel or airport NEVER pay for a phone call with the credit card, or you may find you have just unwittinly donated a substantial sum to BBG Communications Corporate coffers.
I have canceled my credit card and am pursuing retreival via travel insurance... TBA...
