International Satellite Communications / Billed telephone calls without being connected

1 Ireland Review updated:

I placed 2 telephone calls to my friend when I arrived in Ireland. Both times the phone rang, no answer. I was charged $19.85 for one call and $19.80 for the second. When I contacted the company they insisted I left a voice mail. I explained I never reached the party, they offered to reimburse me $15.85 for both calls. I insisted on an investigation that will take approximately 4-6 weeks. I told them I wanted the investigation. This company is out of control.

    What was the outcome of the investigation. I am in the same situation with this company. Since they do not provide any ticket # or investigation # I am doubtful that they actually do an investigation.

    We received a charge from this company on our regular phone bill for a collect call from Cuba that was supposedly 5 minutes long for $40.50! However we never even accepted a collect call from Cuba. Calling International Satellite got us nowhere, they refused to do any investigation or offer us any refund.
