Securus Technologies Cannot Stomach More of GTL Fraud

Securus Technologies will be releasing a series of additional reports on Global Tel Link integrity breaches over the coming six months. Securus said their reports would provide in details facts, findings, and articles about the GTL’s wrongdoings. Securus Technologies said this in a press release representing one of a series of items they intend to publish.

Richard Smith, who is the CEO of Securus Technologies, said in the press release that out of his love for the industry he would not sit and watch as their integrity is thrown to the dogs. Richard says that all industry players as they focus on serving law enforcement, inmates, corrections, family members and the whole society should have their best interest at heart and in the right way. But GTL has not been doing this.

Securus says that they will review a series of wrongdoings and potential wrongdoings by GTL SO as to shame GTL and have them acting with higher integrity. The first review will be done in a 17-page order no. U-20784-B. The order is from the Louisiana Public Service Commission on GTL actions during their term with Louisiana Department of Corrections when they are said to have provided outbound to inmates.

The Louisiana PSC found that GTL was involved in four practices, unauthorized advancing of clocks, high rating of calls, artificial inflation of client’s charges, and multiple billing of calls hence overcharging taxpayers. Despite the order being dated 21st January 1998 a whole 18 years ago, GTL has continued with its wrongdoings of fraudulently overcharging their clients. According to Richard this actions are tainting the image of the industry and should be stopped with immediate effect.
