Bbg Londoon / Outragous Charges from Payphone

1 Los Lunas, NM, United States Review updated:

I was checking my account all day because I am waiting for my Pell Grant from school. At 4pm instead of getting money, I had a negative balance because of a charge from BBG Londoon. They charged me $20.30, apparently from a phone call I made a month ago on a payphone inside of the Wal-mart. I had to google BBG Londoon to find out what they are and that they are doing this to a lot of people. I only hope that this is the end of my charges from them, some haven't gotten off that easily.

    I used the service to make a phone call that was timed at under one minute and the charges were $41.91... How is that even remotely possible???

    Same happened here, there are almost $100 in charges on my account from this group, and there is no info online about who they are.

    I didn't buy a calling card and I found the same charge. I think it's a fraudulent company that preys on people traveling abroad.

    I logged in this morning to my bank account and found 2 pending charges identified as BBG Londoon 01. This was very upsetting to me, as my account is now overdrawn. I was thinking that maybe I had been a victim of identity theft once again. Finally, I 'googled' BBG Londoon and I found other people to be having the exact same complaint. On December 02, 2008 I was in the Denver airport. Swiping my debit card and dialing 10-10-220 + the number, I made 4 calls that day. In addition to having 2 charges against my debit card for $14.16 and $14.19 (which is outrageous), I now have these 2 pending charges from BBG Londoon in the amounts of $8.05 and $18.93. Pretty pricy for 4 phone calls which did not last more than a few minutes.

    Dollar foolish, lesson learned! I will be following up with my bank to get these fraudulent charges reversed!

    BBG Communications and Faircall work together as if it were the same company. They work with airports, hotels etc. They give no warning of charges and debit ridiculous amounts. I got charged $26.89 for two 30 second calls from a pay phone outside a Fred Meyer store while calling my wife who was inside the same store.

    I'm doing a chargeback procedure with my bank and also making a complaint to Fred Meyer's.

    Everyone should make formal complaints. This is criminal. The sign on the payphone says 4 minutes = $1.00

    The same thing happend to my son while placing a call from a pay phone in Germany on his way to Iraq. I'm going to do a charge back request through his bank. I will also file a complaint to Fred Meyers. I will also check into having the military warn unsuspecting soliders about this scam.

    I am an US Soldier and on my way home from Iraq on R&R I made a phone call from a phone in Leizpig. I was on no more than 1 min, and a few days ago i went to my bank and they told me the charge was only a few dollars. Today I check my account and now its $43.77. I cant find any contact information on them.
