Pingo - Poor customer service

This company SUCK big time. I could be studying for test right now but I'm angry enough to spend the time on this. I took the time to sign up to make phone call. The website told you " Fast and Easy", they lie. I spend about 45 min signing up and the only box that had the biggest issue is the "authorize code" provide by them. Really ? you're worry about matching what you gave ? then they told me my credit card information was wrong, i checked and update 4 times, then i used another one. just check my transaction, they charged me 21.60$ 4 times in one card and one time for the next card. when they finally accepted, they said to verify the account which they claimed would take a minute until i can make phone call. They LIED again. now i have to wait 24 hr just to used the account that i paid for. The representative suck too. He suggest i should email the costumer service and told me i would still to wait about 24 hrs for their reply.
I DON'T HAVE TIME TO PLAY GAME !

Sounds like you got played out...

Pingo - Not Giving the Refund

On june 19th 2011 I signed up with Pingo and paid $10 for a calling card so that my wife could call her mother in India. The next day I received an email requesting the my PIN number for verification. On the following day when I tried to used my calling card, I was given a pre-recorded message stating the my account was invalid. I called PINGO and was told that my account had been canceled. When I asked for an explanation, I was told that since you have more than one account we are cancelling it, the refund will be given in 2-3 days to my Paypal account. Since then I am regularly sending them mails and calling their customer contact no. Every time the support persong opens a new ticket and asks me to wait for 5 business days. It is almost 11 days passed now but I am yet to get any refund. I am going to wait till this weekend or else I need to make a compaint to BBB.

I funded my Pingo account with $20 and then did not use their services. When I closed my account with them and asked them to refund my money they refused. Then when I asked them to reopen the account with a $20 credit that I could still use, they refused. They basically took my money, provided zero services, and now will not correspond with me.

They are, in truth, thieves, plain and simple.

I paid online for $25 dollars of additional minutes and I was told last week that I had only one minute left. I tried several times to add minutes over the phone and each time I was told that the account number was not correct. I would like the extra minutes or my money back.

Pingo - Fraud

Found a zero balance on my account the first time I tried using it.
Found numerous complaints of fraud committed by Pingo (in addition to poor service) on internet review sites. Should have googled PINGO FRAUD before purchasing from them.

Also we do not collect funds unless we approve the account, the service and company is legit.

Poor service. Calls never get connected. You will be lucky if you will get connected after one week continuous trying. Bad customer service with nasty attitude. I will never recharge my account and not recommend to any of my friend.

Pingo - cancellation and failing to refund

On November 16th I signed up and paid $10 for a calling card so that my wife could call my son in Korea. The next day I received an email requesting the my PIN number for verification. On the following day when I tried to used my calling card, I was given a pre-recorded message stating the my account was invalid. I called PINGO and was told that my account had been canceled. When I asked for an explanation, I was told that I would have to email and would receive a response in 48 hours. Additionally my bank reported that PINGO still had my payment. I emailed PINGO on November 20th asking for an explanation for being canceled and also for a refund. On November 24th I checked my email. PINGO never responded. I called PINGO and was told that I would need to email them again and they would answer in 48 hours. I mentioned that 48 hours meant Thanksgiving and most businesses were closed for the holidays additionally it connected with Friday and the weekend. PINGO stated that I could expect a response by Monday. Informed them that if I did not receive an explanation for my account being canceled and a refund by Monday, I would file a complaint with the Better Business Bureau. PINGO did not respond. I went online to the Better Business Bureau to file a complaint. Their website informed my that they did not recognize a business called: PINGO and could not process my complaint

----***********I just discovered a $.98 charge for monthly maint. ! I was never told that I'll be charged "MONTHLY FEES"! They are THUGS----************
I wish there was something LESS than one Star, They deserve MINUS 5 Stars
I have been having worse connection ever using there service. I had bad connection on each call I made and I keep getting disconnected after talking for a minute or two or three and asked to enter phone number again and again. It's pretty annoying, frustrating and on top of that I'm paying for that. It's ludicrous, absurdity, incongruity to pay for horrible service like theres. I should receive full refund and a letter of apology. I just discovered a $.98 charge for monthly maint. ! I was never told that I'll be charged "MONTHLY FEES"! They are THUGS.

Steven - We are sorry for the inconvenience this may have caused. We were able to locate your account by the name listed on the complaint. It appears that the reason the new account was closed is because you already have a an account and per company policy to prevent fraud abuse, your only allowed to have one account in our system. We believe we sent you an email letting you know that we had closed the new account as a result of being a duplicate account and asked you to continue using your original account. In the future, I hope you'll work with us directly and not complain online by giving us a little time to resolve this, since it was a holiday weekend. We appreciate your business, since you've bin a customer with us for a while now.
