NCIC / excessive telephone charges
on april 11 / 12 I made 7 attempts to call a party in Canada. On each occasion I received a answering machine message at which point I hung up without leaving messages. Each attempt was made on a pay phone using my mastercard. Each call cost me from 11.67 per call to as much as 12.21 per call for a total of $87.27 U.S.
I find these to be outrageous charges. If this company is allowed to charges such ridiculus rates then the consumer should be notified prior to the call being made by the company clearly posting these rates on the payphone.
I would also like to see a reimbursement made to me for at least 70 % of the charges.
