About a week ago I was involved in an accident on one of our UK Motorways. Being stuck out in the middle of nowhere I had no choice but to use the 118888 service to call the Police, the RAC and my Insurers using my mobile telephone. All a necessity but when my mobile telephone service provider sent me my bill to say I was shocked at what I was charged for making these calls would be a gross understatement, just over £64 according to my mobile telephone bill. I am at a complete loss as to… Read Full Review

One of my users placed a call to directory and must have allowed them to connect him 12 mins £36.57. There are no warnings of the exorbitant fees that this company charges. Worst of all my user has premium number barred. Apparently they have landline numbers to work round this restriction so they are fully aware of what they are doing. If you search on google from a mobile it can return numbers which access the premium service which are not premium tagged hence allowing users the ability… Read Full Review

I was charged over £17 for a 6 minute 3 second call!!! There was no message to tell me about their exhorbitant charges beforehand or I would have cancelled the call. This kind of charging is a scandal. How do these companies get away with it? Will never use them again… Read Full Review

I feel sorry that I have to make this complain. It is just unbearable. I received my Vodafone bill this morning on which says my monthly cost is 29 pounds! Exclude the VAT(which I don not know before I have to pay), I have had 16 pounds spent on the call with 118888 for 6 min. I could not recall when I made such a dial. I just could not understand why they do not remind the customer about the charge. No wonder, 118888 will be regarded as a big cheat by customers. I even start to think if… Read Full Review

Why do the government allow rip off merchants like this company steal money from peoples pockets ??
I dialled their number by accident and for the 9 seconds i was connected to the number i was charged the princely sum of £1.70 !!
Whats the betting that the boss of this greedy company drives a very flash car and lives in a house that takes days to walk round !
SHAME ON YOU !! I ACTUALLY GIVE YOU NO STARS
