Securus America Technologies announced the release of series of articles, facts, findings and reports that highlight integrity breaches and fraudulent practices of Global Tel Link (GTL) an inmate communication provider. According to PR newswire, the issues will be released over six months to provoke GTL into acting with the highest level of integrity. The chief executive officer of Securus, Richard A. Smith, highlighted that the firm’s drive is to serve the customers in the right way. He commented about the first release which is dated Jan 21, 1998, saying that time cannot erase the unlawful actions done by GTL. He emphasised that the malpractices are tarnishing the industry that is supposed to serve the client’s interests at heart.
The 18-year-old report, order number U-20784-B, by Louisiana Public Service Commission found GTL to have acted unlawfully when providing telecom services to inmates in Louisiana Department of Correction. PSC included that GTL programmed their clocks by adding 15 or 36 seconds to the duration of each telephone call. It also reports that they programmed phones and thus charged higher rates than the PSC rate caps or GTL’s tariffs. GTL also fraudulently inflated charges by adding charges after rating calls. It is also reported that they were also double billing calls. The above unlawful and unauthorised actions question the integrity of GTL.
