I need a ticket opend for a billing issue that I have been trying to resolve sine 11/18. The following has been previously posted:
I used the Temporary Suspension feature for the first time. I called on 10/16 and asked to be suspended from 11/1/17 to 5/1/18. I was told that would be done and received a confirming email which I did receive. I was told that I would receive a bill on 11/3 that would require me to pay $58.63 which is the suspension fee and that I would not receive any other bill until I was reactivated. On 11/3, I received a bill of $165 for service from 11/4-12/3, a period for which my service was to be suspended. There was $0 previous balance on the bill. Because I am traveling, it too a while for the bill to catch up to me (and of course I wasn't expecting it). On 11/29, I called and explained the situation. I was told that the mistake would be fixed and the billing error would be resolved. I was told that I should expect my next bill to be for $58.63 Suspension charge. I received the 12/3 bill and it included the past due amount for service 11/4-12/3 plus service charges for 12/4-1/3/18 - all in the period that was to be suspended. It did have an adjustment of $18 for the period 11/29-12/3. So on 12/6 I called. I was again told that the amount would be adjusted and back dated for the period 11/1. I was told to pay the $58.63 and there would be no further charge. I paid the amount of $58.63, the suspension charge, electronically and it posted on 12/8. I received no other paper bill, but did receive an email stating my bill was overdue. On 1/5 I attempted to call, but the wait time was over 1 hour. I connected by Chat to an Agent. I explained the situation. The agent told me that my service was disconnected on 10/17 and reactivated. Obviously not what I ordered and Verizon's mistake. I was told that the suspension could not take place for 30 days after that, which is why I was billed. The agent told me that all adjustments were made and I owed $69. We went around and around (I can provide the 27 pages of chat) with no satisfation. Facts from my side are as follows:
10/16 asked for Temprary Suspension from 11/1 to 5/1/18. agreed to and confirmed.
11/3 Bill - $0 balance forward and Billed for service from 11/4-12/3
11/29 Tel call explaining error in billing - Verizon says to be fixed.
12/3 Bill - amount of 11/3 bill + bill for service 12/4 to 1/3/18 - $18 adjustment
12/6 Tel call explaining error in billing - Verizon to fix. I was told to pay $58.63 Temporary Suspension charge (payment posted 12/8)
12/9 Verizon issued a partial credit of $81 ( I am assuming this is for 12/4-1/3 service)
1/4 Action required email received for Bill outstanding of $69
1/5 Chat session with no resolution. Was told Amount due would be froze Iand I would be contacted by email. Never contacted.
I have chatted and been told this issue would be resolved in 24-48 hours. Never happened. Every time I asked I was told "still working on it.
Now my account is suspended. Really? If I call I am asked to make a payment. In justice beyond belief. Last year I paid 1 year in advance when traveling. This year, I wanted to use they Temporary Suspension.
To my point - I asked for and was granted temporary suspension fro 11/1 to 5/1/18. I owed nothing prior. I agreed to pay the charge and when told to pay it - did. I should owe nothing.
Please escalate this to someone with the authority to provide some answers and that can make the appropriate adjustments. If not I will escalate to the New York State Public Service Commission and the NYS attorney General.
