I was just discussing this pre-paid calling card with my co-workers. My husband went to Brazil on a mission trip with our church and he purchased a card for $5 which was for 9 hours. Every 30 seconds the call would drop. The whole 8 days that my husband was away, I was able to speak to him a total of probably 1 hour. This was truly a rip off. He purchased the card from a Brazilian store in Boca Raton.

"target poor Hispanic immigrants who may not be fluent in English and often lack the necessary documentation to obtain a cellular-or land-based phone account"

This is the nice way to say these cards target ILLEGAL ALIENS .

Bob whether they do this to Hispanic or any other immigrants it's not right it's against the law also Illegal Aliens or not they have paid for the product therefor the transaction if LEGAL. I am not an illegal alien and I have been scam using the prepaid calling cards.How do you think they know who's illegal or Hispanic immigrants ? They reason why I use those cards is because I am intelligent enough to realize that I don't want to pay the over the ceilling rate that the use of a landline or cellular will charge you for making an international call.
