Cell C / breach of contract - promise not kept - bogus insurance activation
I wanted to go with another Cell phone Service Provider, for the better deals, but before my contract ended (September)
A Retention officer (Phumla) called, and after several calls (4) we made a deal.
Reluctant I decided to go with Cell C, on the promise that the first 3 month's the subscription on both my handset's will be free.
August I received the Handsets and my new contract would Start in September.
It was on the 10 October i received my Invoice - and noticed that they did not keep the promise
as I was billed Pro Rata for September and the Full month for October on Both my lines = R1688.
I reported the mattered immediately 10.10.2016 (Ref [protected]) and was advised that it will take 2 day's to rectify.
On the 15th of October, After several call's & written Correspondence I still got no where.
Every agent and Manager Promise to Escalate the matter - and that Cell C will call me with feedback.
CELL C NEVER CALLED BACK.
On the 25th of October, 3 weeks down the line I insisted to speak to another Manager as my issue was still unresolved!!!
* No one seams to be able to find the call recordings for the Upgrade Agent (Phumla) that promised me the 3 month's Free Subscription
* No one seems to feels it necessary to listen to the Recordings - Even after 3 Weeks and plenty of Escalations.
* And the billing department has still not amended my invoice.
On the 31 October I had to call Cell C again, and the line Manager
(Xoliswa Bhutulezi)had the displeasure to deal with me.
*I was promised again that it will be escalated to (Dhana Phala- Phumla Manager) and that the voice Recordings will be listen too.
And that She will be giving me Feedback by the 1 November 10am.
For once I did Receive a call,
But only to be told again, it has been escalated and they will have to listen to the voice Recordings.
Lucky for me I pay my Invoice Via EFT.
Thus Cell C have not been able to Rob me of the R 1689.00 as due om my invoice. It is not what I budgeted for, and I don't have that kind of funds available, As I was convinced it wont cost me a thing (accept for Data bundles and call line off coarse)
Due to the lack of interest, service, dedication and professionalism,
I now have the displeasure to sit with Suspended Cell phone line, of which i probable have to Pay a re-connection Fee, when Ever Cell C find it necessary to keep to the promises of listening to there agent - promising me free subscription when I upgraded...
* I was advice that i should pay the invoice as is.. and that maybe Cell C can "reimburse" me with Data, of another few month's Free service. But How can I trust ANYTHING Cell C Promises????!!!
Today the 5 November, I had to call Cell C again, as I am Still waiting Feed Back, And the manager (Sipho) advised that by Monday i might be lucky enough to receive some feedback, as the Upgrades Department is closed over Weekends.
THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE AND DISCUSSTING!!
Almost a month Later, After several Complaints and I am still no where.
THIS IS WHY I DID NOT WANT TO STAY WITH CELL C IN THE 1ST PLACE!!!
I Believe this is Breach of Contact!!
But I cant get any one to give me legal advice. And I am told, that should I want to cancel my contract, I am in Breach??!!!
I feel like I Can't believe a Word from Cell C!!
I Regret the moment i sported Cell C!!
It Seems that they are trained lairs and Cheats, with Absolutely No Customer Service!!
Oh and I just Recieved my November Invoice -
The October issue has not been rectified.
And once again I am billed For Epic Post Paid R200!!!
And Also For C Surance for A Bogus activation!!!
