I switched from Verizon Fios TV service to another provider, I sent the verizon equipment back to them in the boxes and made sure I placed them in box properly. One month later I got a bill for $42.00 without explanation. I paid it because I thought it was part of my phone bill. Two weeks later I got another bill for $185 with no explanation what so ever. I call verizon and no could tell me what this bill was for. I was told that I didn’t owe any money and to just ignore it. So I did.
The next month I get the same $185 dollar bill from verizon, so I called again, and again I was told it was an error. So I trashed it. I wanted to purchase new cell phones through Verizon, so I put the order in over the phone through ACN and I was denied and was sent an email that stated I had to call an 800 number to find out why I was denied. I called and no one could find out why I was denied. I given a clearance number and was told to put the order through again. I did and was denied again.
On the fifth call to verizon, I was finally connected to another division of verizon and was told that the fios TV boxes that I sent back were damaged and that I was being charged $185 plus the $42 dollars that paid. I asked for the serial numbers that were on the boxes and never received them, I also checked with UPS to see if verizon put in a claim with them with specific names or areas where the damaged shipments came from and I’m waiting on an answer.
But I am frustrated because they have restricted my account, sent the $185 dollar account to collections, and I can’t get a supervisor on the phone to even have an intelligent conversation with.
