Pulse Telecom /long distance/ / Pulse Telecom Scam
I made a horrible mistake when provided Pulse Telecom with my personal and credit card information.
Pulse Telecom has been harassing me for over one year with solicitation calls. Finally I gave up and signed for their service - wasn’t a smart move.
During about 3 weeks period they charged my credit card $140 while I used less than $15 for actual long distance. Arguments with customer service didn’t help – they don’t care and not trying to help at all, just kept talking about rates and prorates and different categories of land lines blah blah blah. Of course I cancelled their service.
But it wasn’t the end. When I got next credit card statement, I found more than $2100 in unauthorized charges from some unknown merchants. Further investigation showed that all of the merchants were from Russia and I couldn’t get my money back because for each transaction has been provided ABSOLUTELY correct information from CVV code on credit card to my address and zip code… I don’t believe in such coincident.
Pulse Telecom seems to be a group of cons whose only mission is to get your credit card and your personal information. Once they got it – they will use this info to scam as much money as they can.
Think about it – if they keep calling (from different phone numbers with different area codes) regardless of your numerous requests to stop the calls – they have zero respect to you and it can’t be a legitimate business. Normally, when you answer the call, no one talks – they expect you to call them back so later you can’t accuse them in any wrong doing.
Be aware! I think they are professional cons and they know exactly what they are doing.
