AT&T Long Distance / scam and fraud!
On Feb 16, 2008 a sales representative contracted out by AT&T was going door-to-door in my neighborhood. The representatives name was Robert Collins and his Sales Rep ID# was SCA7VN9W. He showed me a ton of paperwork and informed me that he could significantly reduce how much I pay each month for my long distance service. He showed me graphs and spreadsheets from his notebook. He had an AT&T identification badge and he had a representative from AT&T call my house while he was here to confirm my new long distance plan. The representative informed me that because I was going to get the Triple Choice Bundle Pricing the cost of the new plan ($26.99) would only be about $2.00. Upon receiving my AT&T bill on March 13, 2008 I noticed that I was charged the pro-rated version of the $26.99 plan and that subsequent months my long distance charge would be the full $26.99. There never was any savings shown. I called AT&T's billing department and the rep there stated that I was right, there was no benefit to the new plan that I had been tricked into signing up for. I gave the information about the scrupulous door-to-door sales rep to the billing department and they stated the matter would be handled internally. I have to admit I was please with the honesty of the billing department. They changed my plan back to what it was and refunded my pro-rated portion of the bill. My complaint is that AT&T sponsored this dishonest sales rep and had no problem with when he signed me up. AT&T only had an issue when I discovered that I had been swindled. This can't be how we allow big business to operate.
