I immediately went online and re enrolled in autopay, got charged. Another 74.99
Then, Verizon texted me that one of my extra 74.99 payment was refunded

Now, Verizon claims they never received any money at all, want to charge me
Taxes And Fees
Returned payment charges. $9.00
Verizon messed up and want me to pay for their mistakes . I closed auto pay for ease and peace of mind, I only got trouble and waste of time
I have wrote it here and other forums about auto pay.
NEVER EVER USE AUTOPAY. it is giving a company free access to your money, debit or credit or checking account. You are better just making a one time payment each month via credit card.
