"Public Telephone Scam" Phone Scams Tip by shy2005

Phone Scams, Bangkok: 3 reviews and 0 photos

On 6 Jul 10, I made an int’l call from a public phone in BKK Int’l Airport. The call lasted no more than 2 min and it cost US$41.91. Card validation of USD0.95 was charged but then refunded. The phone company's code was also 800 99461355. I will never call from any public telephone using my credit ever again!

Unique Suggestions: Do not use your credit card on public telephone anywhere in the world. Buy a local phone card to make phone call even if one instead.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
