Fighting extortion one rip-off company at a time

I know I'm the only person in America whose cell phone isn't always charged and on-hand, but if I am nothing else I am a champion of consumer rights, so I need to make this known:

Do not, under any circumstances, ever use a payphone operated by a company called Faircall which allows you to pay with a credit card. For a three minute call you will be charged $11.27. Such an egregious rip-off makes me want to fight them, even though it's a negligible amount of money. Who do they think they are? I'll probably spend too much time righting this wrong on Monday, but I know my rights.

Good for you. I would have just been mad. It's good that you act on injustices.

I'm really sorry. I can't understand how this happens, how people who do this are okay with it.

Also, do not, under any circumstances, get insurance from a company called Assurion. Absolute scam.
