Securus Technologies recently released the first report in what will be a series of reports outlining the wrong doings of Global Tel Link AKA GTL. In this report, Securus Technologies outlines how they have found GTL of being guilty of many different fraudulent activities. Some of these activities included programming clocks within their telephones at correctional facilities to add an additional 15 or 36 seconds to each call. This act as stated by Securus Technologies was both unauthorized and unlawful. They also outlined how they found GTL to be guilty of charging customers multiple times for a single call despite the fact that there is no existing authorization for activities such as double billing. All and all the wrong doings outlined in this report cost the taxpayers in Louisiana an estimated 1.2 million dollars. It made me very happy to see that there is a company out there dedicated to bringing these wrongdoings to light. When you have a loved one that is incarcerated your life is stressful enough and you should not have to be concerned with people trying to rob you for every penny that they can get. Securus Technologies is a prison technology company that was founded in 1986 and is based out of Dallas Texas. Securus Technologies currently employs over a thousand individuals in correctional facilities throughout the United States. Securus also provides inmate communication services as well as GPS solutions and more. Securus Technologies has also received an A+ rating and accreditation from the Better Business Bureau which only strengthens my confidence in the services that they provide as well as the claims that they had made against GTL. Thank you, Securus Technologies for helping to bring these wrongdoings to light which will hopefully force GTL to operate with better morals in the future.
