Union Telecomusa / refundable one time deposit not paid upon cancellation

1 United States Review updated:

Union Telecom usa (https://www.uniontelecomusa.com) has an one time refundable charges of $39.95 which was supposed to be refunded within 3 weeks of cancellation. I had canceled by service 4 months back. In spite of several calls (more than 20) and their repeated assurances that I would receive the deposit back, I still have not got the amount.

The customer service persons make false promises week after week. It is a case of forgery and cheating the customers. My balance has been full paid... Where should I register my complain? I had registered my complain with their customer service and their website, but did not get any reply...

    I am trying to get my account cancelled and I have $19 bill to pay. I do not want to pay because I am not sure if I am going to get my deposit back. I do not know how should I deal with it.

    I had horrible/terrible experience with union telecom http://uniontelecomusa.com/
    Their customer service is so bad. Initially they told us that there will be no tax at all.

    But in the first month's bill/statement I found out 39% of tax. Monthly telephone bill have lots of over charges. I used this service for few months and then got tired and canceled it on Oct 2007. I was told that in 2-3 weeks I will get our deposit back. Till now I have called them several times, each time they told someone will call you in two week and they will refund you deposit. But I have not got the deposit.

    Now I am really tired and I am not sure which door to knock?? Any idea ?

    A telemarketing person called me stating that making calls to India from USA would be cheaper at the rate of 6 CENTS a minute. I signed up for that. After a month, I got a bill showing a connection fee of 39 CENTS for each call was added onto of the 6 CENTS i signed up for. I called Union Telecom customer service person..about the 'connection fee' which was not disclosed in any document, verbally or otherwise. Since they failed to commit to any of their promises they made to me, I demanded that they Cancel the Service, but Union Telecom gave me the run around. Eventually, Cynthia Castillo ( supervisor) working for Union Telecom, tried to resolve the matter with a pay-out amount in an email..to me. Amount was paid as agreed in July 2007. We had canceled the service and paid the amount, as agreed with Cynthia Castillo. The Following month, Union Telecom persons, dipped into my account and withdrew an additional 248.24 dollars. I contacted my bank, tried to dispute the charges since they were again fraudulent. About 8 months later, they have started making harassing phone calls to me, my family at our home, on our cell phones, demanding 160 more..The person called as a representative of Union Telecom from 1800 697-9234, This person called himself, Krony ID 1069, telling me that he was calling from the Credit Bureau and said that I owed 160 dollars to Union Telecom with case number 40077126, and that Richard Anson is the attorney handling the case and If that money is not paid, it will reflect negatively on my credit report. When I called this number, the number to talk to Richard Anson, the number directed me to a Union Telecom representative, not any attorney's office. I was furious because not only did these individuals steal 248.24 out of my account, overcharged me fraudulently during my time of service with their undisclosed 'connection fees' and now were threating to destroy my credit..that I have worked hard to build; if I don't pay the ransom amount of 160.00, they would destroy everything I've worked so hard to maintain. These people should be sent to jail because If I wasn't a spiritually elevated person, I would have been dead right now of a Heart Attack!!!

    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.

    I am in the same boat as many of you. The salesperson made false promises and gave me the incorrect number, which would give me the appropriate discounted rates. He also told me that there would be no additional fees or charges and when I received my 1st mnth's bill, there were addtional charges. Not only that, they also miscalculated the minutes that we used, as I kept a good track of all of our usage, but their bill did not match my tracked times at all. They are cheating the customers and I would NOT suggest this company to my enemies either.

    I contacted my local TV news station and they were able to get results for me immidiately. The TV station also did a 2-3 minute special report on this issue to make others aware of it. I got my money back and they have closed my account.

    When I signed up with Union Telecom, they took a deposit of $40 at the time of signing up. They clearly stated that entire money (deposit) will be refunded back to my credit card account.

    When I cancelled the account, Union Telecom said they can only give Telephone carf for my deoposit. They'll not return the money to my credit card account.

    I have challendged them and asked their accounting person to call me back.

    My account cancellation number is ...5592067
