Extra Charges From Global Tel

When you’re dealing with Global Tel Link, you think that it’s just one simple company. However, you’ll soon find out that the company uses a few different names and will appear on your debit card statement under those different names. According to My3Cents, this is how they can sometimes get more money from people who set up an account so that family and friends can make phone calls from jail or prison. When my wife was released from jail, I was happy to know that I wouldn’t have to deal with Global Tel any longer.

However, a few weeks after she was home, I received a charge on my debit card from a company name that Global Tel uses. I called the company and found out that they charged a fee that they forgot to charge when I had my account open, so they had to recover the money that needed to be paid. I was livid about this information and called a supervisor. The amount that was being charged didn’t change, so I knew that it had to be from GTL because it was an amount that I had paid when my wife was in jail. After being on the phone for a month off and on and talking to my bank, I had to get a new debit card just so I wouldn’t be charged anything else. Read out GTL on more about GTL on yelp.com.
