Global Telelinks Prepaid Calling Phone Cards / absolute wastage of money!

1 United States Review updated:

I have taken calling card from Global-Telelinks to call India from USA, and paid almost more that $200, but got very worst service, no continuity in your call, cuts down after every 2 seconds and no clarity in voice... please nobody take their service, because it is for pay and get nothing besides frustration.

    Very pure service, not trusty, cheating customers.

    I brought the prepaid service from an offer to call to India from USA for 7 cents. I brought this service and when I staat to call, its saying 7.9cents per minute. My experience, they just giving too many offers, but they are not eager to keep it. I and several call to get back my money. Finlay, I made a dispute through my credit card company and they force them to return my money after 2months email and phone call. Very pure service, not trusty, cheating customers.

    I Bought a Hello china Calling Card for $5. A couple of days a go I tried to call China; There was a dialing tone but no connection whatsoever. Then the recorded voice announced I have insufficient fund. I called the customer service and explained what happened, expecting a refund and some kind of apolgy. But the soft spoken lady on the other enf of the line simply said:"sir, but you are trying to call a cell phone which we don't allow". I told her back I didn't connect to it, besides they didn't list that theres is a penalty for attempting or thinking to call to a cell phone, but to no a avail.

    So beware of this highway robbery, and a high way robbery wouldn't last long. To contribute my share to this end, I am in the process of filling a complaint to FCC and Better Business Bureau (BBB) which the co. is a member.

    I bought Talk USA card. It says that Canada to Bangladesh Cellular call per minute is 2 cents. I bought 20$ credit which said it would allow me 1000minutes. But after talking for about 30 minutes, it said that I have $2 credit.

    I contacted the address given. They said the rate is 49 cents per minute. It's a total cheating. I am looking for legal platform where I can complain. If anyone knows any platform please forward it to me.

    I would see the end of this kind of cheating. For proof, I'm forwarding the links as follows:

    The calling card you choose when calling to Bangladesh cell phone is $0.49 per minute. When you are referring to the 1000 minutes that is when you are calling within the United States, not outside the US.

    I bought a callin card in early march to call the caribbean from the US, the first time I tried the card, there was no connection whatsoever. I called customer service and the auto machine came on and said try in 15 mins so i did because i couldn't get a representative. After waiting 15 mins I tried but the same crap kept happening. I waited a couple of days (7) and tried agian same thing happened, called the customer service I finally got someone and she told me to try in 1 hr which i did in 1 hr still no connection on the card. I called back and a man answered when i said hello he hung up I called again got a soft spoken lady when i got a soft spoken lady when i started to state my problem she cut me off and said "You need to call back thank you" and hung up on me. I tried again and by this time we're in April the second week and they just kept hanging up the phone. I'm begging to think this is a scam and if this is I say shame on you!!!
