Faircall Communications / fraudulent charge/debit card theft
On March 7, 2009, I placed a payphone call to my home from the Albuquerque airport, lasting only a few seconds (basically a "I'm here, come get me" message). The Faircall recording told me that my card account would be charged $1.00 for the call. When the charges came into my bank on March 26, besides the $1.05 charges, they tacked on an additional $11.27 for another call, which was not made by me.
I have seen many other such complaints online against this company. This is nothing less than outright theft. Why is this company still in business and why have they not been prosecuted?
