CEO of Securus Technologies Vows to Reveal Unlawful Practices of High-Profile Communication Provider

In 1998, Global Tel Link a.k.a GTA deliberately programmed its hardware to over-charge customers and inmates calling their families from prisons and criminal justice facilities across the United States. As one of the largest providers of communication services to the criminal justice system, such actions went unnoticed for a long time. Recently, Louisiana Public Service Commission revealed a comprehensive report [click here:] on the cheating practices of GTL. However, the report may go unnoticed; therefore, the CEO of Securus Technologies, Richard A. “Rick” Smith has promised to reveal important information to the public.
In an effort to educate public, Securus Technologies will highlight the report on PR Newswire’s website. According to Mr. Smith, Securus Technologies has vowed to reveal ill-practices in the criminal justice industry to reinstate its reputation as a trustworthy sector that is aware of the problems faced by our community. In the report, the Louisiana Public Commission cited multiple reports of infringement and unlawful practices of GTA while working on a contract for out-bound calls for PSC. Securus recently acquired a A+ rating from BBB.

The report highlighted how Global Tel Link programmed its communication hardware to inflate call charges. As such, the clock inside the telephone was programmed to add 15 or 36 seconds increments to the original call time. In addition to the inflated charges, it was also revealed that the hardware was programmed to over-charge customers allowing the company to get reimbursement based on call charges that were over the PSC prescribed rates. As if this was not enough, GTL also got reimbursement for charging customers more than the standard charges displayed by the company on its official rate-sheet. As a result, the Louisiana Public Commission has determined that GTL is directly responsible for approximately $1,243,000.

Richard Blair Advice About Insurance for Airbnb Rentals

Richard Blair Advice About Insurance for Airbnb Rentals

Richard Dwayne Blair of Wealth Solutions can help homeowners who are considering renting out their homes through Airbnb or other short-term rental situations.

Based in Austin Texas and owned entirely by Blair, Wealth Solutions offers insurance advisory services and financial planning. He can also help with insurance questions.

Using Airbnb to rent out your house while you are temporarily away from it can certainly worth well. A person or family gets too enjoy an actual house with amenities instead of staying cooped up in a cramped, unfriendly anonymous hotel room.

You are probably on a vacation or business trip of your own, and spending more money than you normally would, so having that short-term rental income helps pay for your trip. If you rent out part of your house while you’re still in it, you receive significant income in return that can help you pay off bills. It’s very traditional. Through history, many people have earned extra money by taking in boarders.

When it works out well, as most of the transactions do, both parties win.

However, it doesn’t always work out well. There are risks. The tenants may damage your property, and your insurance won’t cover the costs. If they suffer an injury, you may be liable. You may be liable if they hurt your neighbors, or steal or damage their property.

In some jurisdictions, if your short-term paid guests commit drug-related felonies, local law enforcement has the right to seize your house.

Some tenants refuse to pay their rent.

Most homeowners insurance does not cover short-term rentals, making you liable for whatever the tenants do. Airbnb has insurance, but it’s secondary coverage. That means it’s not effective until you run out of your own insurance coverage.

You may still decide the return is worth the risk. If so, Blair advises you consult a qualified insurance expert or wealth planner before listing your house on Airbnb.

Wealth Solutions is a Registered Investment Advisory Firm or RIAF. Blair is a registered financial advisor with over 20 years of experience helping people prepare for an abundant, worry-free retirement.

Blair graduated from the University of Houston with a Bachelor’s degree in Finance and Financial Management Services. He established Wealth Solutions in 2012. He has also worked for United Global Securities, Blair Insurance Group, Worldwide Ventures and Crownbridge Wealth. He currently has over $55 million in assets under management. He’s an expert in employee benefits, insurance, asset protection, estate taxes and planning, securities and integrated financial planning.
