Global Tel Link Incorrect Billing

I have been charged NC collect rates at $3.40+tax for more than 120 calls that should be charged $3.15+tax per the NC DPS website Inmate Telephone System section. I have paid the $4.75 service fee 18 times, but paid $7.95 3 times. I have paid full (yet incorrect) price for 7 calls less than 5 minutes each, including a 2 second call that was a busy signal, that should be refunded per the Q&A Help section of the GTL website, as my phone is not a cell phone. I have been told by GTL that my billing will not be researched, and that I will not receive any credit on my account, ever.

Hi my name is Paula and I would like to put together a group of us to file a complaint to the FCC and would like to bring itto the attention of the media. This company preys on vulnerable people in desperate situations and needs to be delt with. I contacted a lawyer and he is willing to take the case.

Global Tel Link No refunds and drop calls for no reason

Global tel link has a phone directory for inmates to be able to call home rather by house phone or cell phone calls. Global tel link call policy is made not to. Give rufunds for any cellphone dropped calls three way calling and or any other reason due to high volume called through cellphones. Their are over a million people who have family and friends within the jail system and have kids. The phone is also made as a privilege to inmates, they are the ones being punished does the family and friends have to suffer as well. The calls are at $3. 22 minimum of $25 dollars a day, not including plus $4. 95 activation. People not only have to buy cards get a ride or drive to get a debit card buy the card in which have to load it activate call global tel link when the whole process takes two hours or more. In this whole time your ffriend family member whatever daughter mother sister brother dad etc; could be trying to call or don't think to call because they think family forgot about them or just know how much everything cost and know they feel so confined don't wanna put the friends and family through the hassle. The complaint is for me and so many others people do not know where to go to receive help not only about refunds for our calls, or feeling ripped off when it's bad enough if they do the crime they already serving their time, and yet still no room for change, and acceptance so will and can. The people who don't know where they can to start a compliant, i will send them here first, i only hope people are not to scared to take action take a stand do this for your family for yourself and put a stop to the high cost of global tel link connect network calls, not because we don't understand the privilege or that doing something wrong can affect people with you and around you, but frankly their are inmates and people inconclusively willing to change, if someone starts by helping now please people help. Me take action post everywhere put in complaints for our jail system to the white house and also complaints here through this review board and any other rssources. It'll only take a free minutes of our time to get our point across. Thank you

I would like to boycott this fraudelent company and I am seeking ways to do it.
They are using illegal tatics to avoid refunding me for an amount by having my account in negative standings of the amount in question.

More than likely they are assuming that I dont have another way to have conatact with my love one so they think that I will pay the negative balance. What a bunch of crooks.

Global Tel Link terrible phone service

Calls from Inmate in correctional facility are not going through. When I call their center to report the problem, I get the same answer. The people are very nice about it, but I keep getting told my account is inactive or needs to be reset. Some tell me I need to let the phone ring more times, or that my phone company is blocking the call. None of this is true. They just have crappy connections from point A to point B. Unfortunately, they are the only game in town to get calls from the inmates, so we are kinda screwed on this. It is very frustrating. I urge anyone else with this problem to file complaint with FCC and Better Business Bureau. and the department of corrections in their state.
Thank you.

Global Tel Link Video calls to inmates

Their network fails all the time and on Christmas Eve all the video conference which cost $10 each did not work. When you call to complain they say it is on your end which is wrong since the error message even said their network was down and all the inmates had the same issue who were in the room taking video calls. contacted their customer service and they said it was on my end which was incorrect and they don't want to refund the money.. This has happened numerous times with. Bot the video and the phone class. Usually get cut off and they refuse to refund the money. This is a huge scam. I wonder how many people have been ripped off and they will not issue refunds.

Global Tel Link No Refund and Poor Service Connections

We have had to use GTL phones and services off and on for the last 2 years. At first, the collect calls from prison came through our local telephone provider, but shortly thereafter, GTL put a freeze on our communications until we paid them for the privilege to use their services instead of our local company. The calls are expensive, furthermore, you cannot clearly hear from their phones (Penn Pavilion, New Brighton, PA) if you are lucky enough that the phone calls get disconnected prior to the 15 minutes you are alloted to talk. If you call to report the poor phone connections, it doesn't matter, they can't and won't help you or even consider a refund. The phones have not been fixed there for years. Does the prison system get a cut of the phone funds or is this just legalizing theft of services?
The billing statements are not correct and you cannot keep them straight, since they change when you request a billing history. The "doctored" statements vary from time to time.
Months ago, we requested a refund. Last month, we demanded our $100.00 back and have not received anything yet. I called today, (8-29-12) and GTL's rep says that a Western Union Credit Card was mailed out 8-17-12. I asked about the card and there are fees that apply if you use it. Who gets those fees, Western Union or GTL? Why do we have to pay fees to get our full amount refunded to us?
Isn't the irony blatant...GTL provides telephone service for prisoners and their families, yet they are the THIEVES who are PROTECTED by the government and Department of Corrections.
One last suggestion...CLASS ACTION SUIT.

This review was chosen algorithmically as the most valued customer feedback.

It is appalling to me how some State wide companies can cost us so much. Global Tel-link is a rip off. They bid for contracts with the State so inmates may receive phone calls. However it is costing 25cents per min (how rediculous this is.) and even more ridiculous is the fact that they are the only phone providers with Pitches Dentention "Correctional"...

Global Tel Link Over charge on debit card

On 4/10/12 I allowed a friend to use my debit card to put time on on her phone to talk to her boyfriend in prison. My card was double charged fot a $25 depsit, totalling $50. When I tried to call to have it corrected on 4/18/ they charged another $25. When I finally got a person on the phone, I was promised a full refund of all $75 plus reimbursement of the $32 NSF fee I received. Good thing I disputed the charges with my bank, because I never received 12anything from them and now cannot get through to anyone!

Global Tel Link ONLINE PAYMENT

FOR THE LAST SIX MONTHS I HAVE BEEN MAKING $20 - $25 PAYMENTS TO MY ACCOUNT PER WEEK ON LINE WITH DEBIT CARD. SATURDAY, APRIL 28, 2012, I DID AS USUAL, MADE A $20 PAYMENT. WHEN I HIT "SUBMIT" MY SCREEN FLASHED RAPIDLY AND THEN CONFIRMATION CAME UP INDICATING I HAD MADE A "****$200 PAYMENT****". WOW! WHEN I WENT TO PRINT THE CONFIRMATION IT WOULD NOT LET ME. I HAD TO WAIT UNTIL MONDAY TO CALL. AFTER SPEAKING WITH 4 CSR's TO SUPERVISORS AND BEING ON HOLD FOR 15+ MINUTES EACH TIME (CALL TOOK OVER 1 1/2 HOURS), I WAS TOLD THEY WOULD NOT REFUND MY MONEY...BUT THEY COULD ONLY TO FREEZE ALL COLLECT CALLS FOR 30 TO 60 DAYS.

SO CONSIDERING HOW THIS HAS OCCURED, I REALLY THINK THE PERSON OR GROUP THAT IS IN CHARGE NEEDS TO STEP UP TO THE PLATE INSTEAD OF THESE PEOPLE WHO HAVE TO LIE TO HONEST HARD WORKING PEOPLE BECAUSE OF A SO CALLED "POLICY".

THIS IS REALLY CROOKED!

IT'S SAD THAT A COMPANY HAS SET UP THEIR ONLINE PAYMENT SYSTEM TO TAKE MORE MONEY THAN WHAT THE CUSTOMER IS PAYING AND THEN HAS AN EXCUSE AS TO WHY THEY CAN'T GIVE IT BACK TO YOU.

ONE DAY MAYBE GLOBAL TEL*LINK WILL HAVE TO ANSWER FOR THEIR WRONG DOING.

Global Tel Link lost money

i purchased a prepaid card and loaded it with $50 and global tel link declined it then i brought another card and loaded it with $25 and global tel link declined that card...Now its $75 that's floating around somewhere and I've been calling their customer service and they told me there is nothing they can do about it, but i won't stop until i see my $75 so i would advise people to never use global tel link and to just get a house phone that accepts collect calls because global tel link is a rip off.

It's October 2013- and from the looks of it- this has happened for years.! I payed 25 dollars to talk to someone who is in the orange county jail. Now, I can barely afford water... Yet I've put 25 dollars into a global tel link account and the moment before it connects me without dropping calls it said- my card worked and i put 25 dollars in the account but suddenly my other party disconnected... well he called back and said that it's what the automated system said to him when he was waiting for me to pay and connect... but before he even spoke to me- it said i had 11 dollars in my account?!?! what?! this is is the 3rd or fourth time they've taken my 25 dollars in two months! what the hell is going on? Where's the class action lawsuit at?!?!

This company is truly the worst fraudulant ever. They have taken $361.90 without authorization and have promised to fix the problem and refund my bank account. It's been 3 weeks and they have done nothing but make empty promises. Even though they say they don't keep credit card info on file, how do the charges just keep showing up? Now I have to cancel my card and get a new one. I have registered a complaint with the Attorney General's Office. Hopefully someone will shut this company down and find everyone's money and return it.

I put 25$ on my account, and when the person tried to desperately call me repeatedly, he couldn't get trough. I kept calling them about it, and they would just quickly apologize, and tell me they fixed it .But they lied, because the person tried to call me again, and couldn't get through. We were so desperate for the calls that concerned legal matters, and time was of the essence. But the damage was done, and I paid for nothing. I felt so cheated, I couldn't believe it.

Global Tel Link What is the deal here

Our grandson calls us collect several times a month and the facility he calls from uses Global Tel Link. We use AT&T for our long distance carrier and pay our bill monthly. Global Tel Link tells us their company policy is to bill the party directly when charges are $100 or more. Our phone company always accepts our payment. What is the deal here? They say their charges won't be any more than AT&T would charge. I doubt that or why are they insisting to bill us themselves? Or are they getting a cut somewhere along the line for heavy usage at the consumers expense or inconvenience of having to pay another bill? Someone should look into this.

Global Tel Link Still waiting refund after 1 month

I have been calling this company for a refund of $20.00 for the past month and all I get is excuses like; company is slow not enough people or Oh you wanted a refund? I am sick and tired of waiting for my money. They are a rip off you give them $25.00 and when you can;t use them they only refund $20.00. We should be allowed to charge this scam company interest. Please help if you can and get my $20.00 back. Thank you Miss J0Anna Patti

Global Tel Link Bogus, scam collect call

I got a phone call to accept collect call from some prison. At first I said, "No." The woman's voice said, "You have a family member that is in prison. This a service to find a family member that is in prison." So, I accepted. The guy that I was connected to said, "You have a family member that is in prison. You have to dail this #xxxxxxxxx(I don't remember the #). That will tell you of a family member that is in prison." I asked him a half dozen questions and the only thing he would say, "You have to call this #. Just call it. Call this #." Well, thinking I just got scammed some how, I called the at&t operator. She told me it was a good thing that I did not dial it. I'd've gotten a hughe phone bill from it plus all kinds of other charges linked to my phone #. Nuthin' she could do about it. When it shows on the bill, contest it and request a refund. Today, I tried that. Close to an hour on hold. The rep. said she'd connect me to her supervisor. 15min. later, I get a recording that, "they're not taking any more phone calls today and try later." I'll try again. They nicked me $5.70.

Global Tel Link Waiting a month for a refund!

I was attempting to set up a cell phone account so my fiance in prison can call me and thought i could do the prepay on my cell instead of setting up a direct account. after i learned that the prepay was for jails and not prisons i called to get my refund and they told me 7-10 days. this was febuary 28th 2011. after 14 days of waiting i still hadnt gotten my refund so i called again and was told that they put an email to the refund department for my money that i would have it in the next 48 hours. Today march 19, 2011 i called and was told that there are no promises as to when i would get my money back after i've been told MULTIPLE times that it takes 7-10 days. here it is 20 days later and i STILL DONT HAVE MY $25.00 back. This is illegal, it is fruad, and this company is a SCAM. i want my money back by monday night. if i do not have my money back I WILL FILE A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT. your company is nothin but problems, and just because my loved one got himself into some triv does not mean i should have to pay to. he may be in trouble but that doesnt mean he doesnt have loved ones out here that dont need or want to talk to him to make sure he is OK. Prison is nothin nice and he is in danger every day he is in there. not being able to talk to him is taking an emotional toll on him, and his family and friends out here. This is not fair to us. Times are hard for everyone, not just your company. GIVE ME MY MONEY BACK!
