Securus Technologies is a company that I recently read an article about. They provide criminal and civil justice through technology solutions. Securus released a recent press report that shows a lot of wrongdoings that were carried out by Global Tel Link. Global Tel Link has been shown to have committed fraud when it comes to scheduling the clock on the telephones in different correctional facilities. Global Tel Link programs telephones to rate calls at a higher price than what is permitted by the facilities. Global Tel Link also had been found to inflate the charges that they were giving to their customers. They did this by adding different amounts of money to their calls. These practices were carried out in a way that was very deliberate, and the only reason for carrying them out was to overcharge their customers. The results of these practices have cost the taxpayers of Louisiana over $1,200,000.
The wrongdoings of Global Tel Link were first noticed starting in 1998, and this behavior is completely unprofessional and illegal. With time, Global Tel Link continued on with their morally degrading behavior, and because of that Louisiana Public service commission will have to take measures to penalize them for these actions that can detriment the entire industry. This is in essence playing a trick on different consumers in order to get them to lose more money.
Securus Technologies is the company that the did this investigation, and they are in the business of serving more than 350,000 agencies, and those agencies work with over 1,000,200 inmates in all of the North American continent. Securus Technologies is a company that holds itself to a very high ethical and moral code, and they are dedicated to providing public information, investigation, communication and monitoring products in order to make the world a more trusting place to live in.
