Union Telecom Usa / Unsolicited phone calls

1 United States Review updated:
Contact information:

I got a sales call from a telemarketer for Union Telecom New York City, saying he was offering 2.5c/min on phone calls to India. He sounded of Indian origin as well. His call was at approx. 7.45 on Sunday morning and he woke up my family, especially our baby, who started crying immediately. The baby had already kept us up for most of the night.

I told this telemarketer that I never wanted him to call again, that I was not interested in his product or ever hearing from him again, and that he should take my number off his calling list. He proceeded to once gain tell me about the benefits of his company's product, and at this point I got angry and yelled at him and then cut off the phone. He then calls me back to heckle at me, make fun of me and tells me he'll call back again. Unfortunately, his number was blocked on CallerID.

    UnionTelecomUSA are cheaters. Everyone in their company including sales, marketing & billing department are lying. They tell you 2.9C per min and they will not charge you for any call less than 1 minute. But they are doing lots of mistakes in their bill. They charge you more than 2.9C per min, plus they charge you call less than a min (basically call which never was initiated). Shocking part of their bill is that they charge your 40% tax on that. Their billing/customer care department are brazillian/hispanic, they do not understand English & they can not communicate properly. They insist you to give your credit card number and cvv number on the phone to make payment. Once you give them you are gone.. they will charge you anything and than you will have to fight with their stupid billing department.
    Your per call charge is more than 7C per minute.

    Dude stay away from these cheaters...

    I have had very unethical and dis-honest experience by the Union Telecom. The Company took $41.50C from my Master Card and It took me over three months to get $39.50 back after along fight with Union Telecom. Union Telecom's Reps have been bugging me for a long time with false verbal rates and disturbing me many many times to get Union Tel. long distance deals.I will never deal with Union Tel.

    But again after Union Telecom Reps'. high pressure and organized trap made my wife to accept long distance deal as they said, ' we have a new promotional deal for long distance my wife trusted the Rep. but all that is a false. We are retired/Seniors and Union telecom Reps are real cheaters, dishonest and doing business and traping inocent people !!

    Telemarketing ### from this company will not stop calling. My experience with these guys is similar. They will keep calling and harassing and will not stop, will not give their phone number and all are of Indian origin. Disgusting that these ### will keep on bothering their own community. I have filed several complaints with "Do not call registry" but nothing came of it so far. Any suggestions tyo teach these ### a lessons are welcome.

    Thanks

I have just yelled at them, they keep telling me to give them a credit card number, haha ya righhhhtttttt. These people are of indian origin and clearly have no respect. They today alone have called both of us over 100 times!!! what is wrong with people? Don't fall for their schemes, just try to ignore their calls. Again I have hung up on them, dunno what to do to get rid of them, if anyone knows please follow up.

    UNION TELECOM is a fraudulent company. Everything they said is wrong.

    1. Every call is incorrectly computed - for each call they have added about 20% more in minutes. 20 minutes calls were charged for 27 minutes. 40 minute calls were charged for 54 minutes. This was true for EVERY CALL without exception

    2. There is additional 20% charged under Taxes and other charges.

    3. The credit they promised for getting other people signed up never showed up.

    I am going to contest the charges and report them to the BBB.

    What they are doing is criminal.

    Stay away.

    This company was behind me till I subscribed for their service.
    Now, I am behind them every month since they always overcharge me. (If I spoke for 30 minutes, they used to bill me for 50 mins).
    Everytime I call them to disconnect the service. But, they never gave me that option. They will somehow try to convinve me. Last time, some one from their comany he will call me back with my corrected bill amount. But, no one called me and now they have sent me a bill with late payment charges.

    WORST SERVICE. If you think, you are going to save money with this company, it is not going to happen.
    Also, the Taxes are too high in their bill.

    STAY AWAY.
    Rather, I would go with Stana or Trueroots who are more trust worthy.

    Thanks

    These people are ### to the true meaning of it. I have gone through hell with them as my credit card was used fradulently after I registered with them. Don't even think of looking at them. I am saying this once again you will regret it throughout your life. I very sorry for my friends to whom I recomended these ###. If you have already registered with them its a must that you cancel your credit card as it will be used fraudulently sooner or later.

    I am getting calls from Union Telecom New York for last severl days/weeks the name of the person is (S.C.). One day he called at around 11 PM. He is very unprofessional. On asking the detail he gave me two websites http://www.uniontelecomusa.com and http://www.uniontelusa.com/ he told that half of the information is on one site and half other. On saying at least 100 times that I will not take the service neither I will give you approx $39.95. I was shocked to hear when he said '$40 me mare ja rahe ho' (English translation: You are dying in $40). I got angry and yelled at him and disconnected the phone. After all this - see his courage, he still called me the very next minute- may be to tease me. I will file complaint against them.

    I've had similar experience with union tel. I cancelled my home phone long distance service sometime ago and asked them to return my 40$ deposit. After couple of phone calls, they started blocking my phone. I think they have some kind of system which blocks' complainers phone calls. So then I tried with a different phone to same customer service number, and someone asnwered immidiately!

    They still weren't ready to return the money, they gave me a calling card.

    Stay away from Union tell.

    i have receives calls from union telecom because one of my colleague gave my number for referral discount. I have never talked to such a bad mannered sales person. I repeated say to him in very clear words that look i am not interested in what ever benefits you are offering me no matter how good your rates are. He was constantly arguing and misbehaving and try to tell me what should i do. I got mad at him and hung up. But that gay call me again even though i told him thousand times DON, T CALL ME AGAIN. I found him very annoying.

    These are the worst people to deal with. Dont go with them even if they offer free service. first, to sign you up they will call you anytime, day or night. They simply dont care that you are human too, and may need some rest. Once you sign up, forget your 40 USD deposit and tighten up your belts to pay some unexplained bills to unknown numbers. They are crooks, better safe than sorry.

    A representative of the company called me and promised to provide cheap rate for overseas calls and he said there will be $39.99 deposit which I will get back anytime I cancell the account. After few months I realized the company is charging fraudlently (Charge extra minutes and highter rate) so I called to cancell. The Rep made me pay two different amounts for the calls I didn't make. I paid because I was scared that if I don't pay they may send it to collection agencies. This company had the worse customer service and they commitin fraud. i was surprised that no Government agency is investigating them. Please someone from some agency or state do investigate this company. I bet you will find out lot more than what I mentioned. Thanks!
