Choice Africa Phonecard / scam charges

1 New Zealand Review updated:
Contact information:

I purchased the Choice Africa Nz phone card in Auckland New Zealand with the understanding that calling rate to Nbi (Kenya) was about $.095 a minute. This was shown to me on a chart at the store where I purchased the card. when trying to make my first call from a cellular i was informed i had only 16 minutes, the call went thru but the communication was poor and discontinued (After 30 secs) trying calling again from a pay phone i was informed i had only 2 mins. this cards are a scam and a rip off!!! am back to Afro Asia which is reliable and at least their 40 min are truly 40 min ( imagine this other card advertised 301 min to Nbi when they could only do 3 min!!! shame on them!!!)

    I have Choice Africa too.
    At least they tell you how much time you have for your money. Sometimes that is not enough and I notice or I have been charged at higher rate anyway. If I complain they nearly always refund the charge, but the calls to Customer Services take forever (wastes about 30 min!).
    And they just cannot get me through to a business number in Botswana-- I have been trying for months. They always deny that it is their fault
    However they are cheaper than most cards.
