The latest Cricket scam involves the cricket cell phone company committing fraud by Illegally shutting off the phone service to people's phone after the bill has clearly been paid in full!!!
This has happened to me twice now since the 1st of march & it's now march 11!
The 1st time I called Cricket to find out why my service was disconnected, The UNEDUCATED RETARD that answered my call attempted to FLAT OUT LIE & tell me theat I hadn't paid my bill even theough I made it known that I had proof that I had paid it on the 1st of the month as I always do and that I had PROOF!
She then called me a liar & attempted to make me pay my bill a 2nd time even after I both informed and educated her that my bank statement was proof that my bill was paid up to date!
After reviewing my account, she even admitted that my payment was received, but then tried to feed me a load of crap claiming that cricket couldn't receive the payment and that my original payment which had already been taken out and posted to my bank account would be refunded in 3 business days!
NO REFUND WAS EVER ISSUED!!!
The payment had already cleared with my bank so there was nothing to be refunded!
Here it is, now March 11th and Cricket has again Illegally disconnected my service!
They're in for a very rude awakening when I visit the Cricket store today and proceed to viciously educate the RETARD behind the register and make it known theat I will take legal action against Cricket for FRAUD if they don't restore my service and/or attempt to pull this scam on me again!
Working for Cricket is like working at a fast food joint... NEITHER EDUCATION NOR INTELLIGENCE IS REQUIRED!!!
The other SCAM that Cricket pulls on people has to do with thier garbage prepaid phones, They advertise that after 90 days of service, a customer can switch from prepaid service to regular service but when someone attempts to make the switch, Crickett tells them that it can't be done or that they have to purchase a new phone, This is an ILLEGAL BAIT & SWITCH kinda SCAM that Cricket has been pulling on unsuspecting customers in recent years!
This company needs to be put in their damn place!!!
