Legacy Long Distance / Unauthorized charges

1 United States Review updated:
Contact information:

My husband was taken to an inmate holding facility in Texas and of course he called me. I accepted the phone call but before accepting I was told to enter a valid credit card number. I had to talk to him so I did but never in my worst nightmare did I realize how much this phone call was going to cost me. We talked twice that night but not for very long because in a jail they don't let you talk for too long. This was on March 20, 2009.

A little over a week later I was checking my bank account online and saw that I had overdrafted on a couple of checks. I had no idea why and then I saw two transactions posted on March 20, 2009. One transaction was for $57.00 and the other was for $229.80. I didn't know what they were so I called the number listed on my statement for those transactions. Now this is where it gets confusing. The recording of the number I called was for Wells Fargo and I was asked to enter a pin number. I have a credit card with Wells Fargo but this wasn't the 'real' Wells Fargo. This company not only ripped me off but is now making Wells Fargo look bad by using their number to cover up who they are. I decided to look on the internet for Legacy Long Distance and a bunch of [redacted]s came up. I just want to know how to get my money back. I cannot fix my bank account because the damage has already been done.

    I found a charge for 22.70 from legacy long distance, a company that i had never heard of. when i looked into it, i was told that they were running a scam and many people had false charges.
