Update...Charge for 2 local short calls from payphone - $80
Edited on Tue Nov-24-09 03:33 PM by Liberal_in_LA
Update from my previous thread where I thought I was charged $15 for each call.

Background. Didn't have my cell phone with me. Stopped at a local (Los Angeles area) payphone. Coin slot wouldnt accept coins. Operator put thru the calls for me. Made 2 local calls that lasted 2 minutes at most.

Turns out that more charges settled into my credit card account today.. For each call: $15 for Qwest communications Intl, $24.95 for a company called Sharenet Communications. Yep, that's $39.95 for a call that would have cost 35 cents if the coin slot had been operating. Just like the LA times article stated...they removed one of the charges when I called today... The lady acted like she was doing me a favor.
