ComEd / unauthorized debit charge

1 IL, United States Review updated:

I had made a payment to ComEd through my bank's Online Bill Pay. Which sends them the money electronically, if unable then they mail them a check. I did this to avoid the $3.50 charge from making payment over the phone. They denied the electronic payment from my bank and then charged to my account including the $3.50 charge. So now I am left with 2 charges from ComEd and none of the customer service reps can handle the mental capacity of what is going on to assist me. I had to go through my bank to claim a dispute based on an unauthorized charge to my account. Still is inconvenient and ComEd is probably the worst merchant I pay monthly.

    COM ED is a MONOPOLY and NOONE in ILLINOIS can see it!!
    The polititians are too busy getting bribes to see what Com Ed is doing to its consumers. We can complain all we want, but NOTHING will be done and we cant choose another electric company because there isnt one!!
