[Resolved] Mediacom / Lies and Poor Customer Service
Another unhappy MediaCom customer.
Called last week to set up to add Cable to my prexisting internet service. The date was set for Nov 23 between 8 and noon. I wait till 12:30 and nothing. So when I call to inquire about where the tech is I was told they "Called 3 times" After informing them I had 0 missed calls and no messages I am told they don't leave messages. She puts me on hold and I get disconnected.
After I call back I'm told he called 3 times and left 3 messages ... Strange given I was just told they don't leave messages. I am then told that they will have to reschedule (this is at 1;30) ... I see no reason why the tech who alleges he came to my home can't come back at the end of the day and solve this problem.
I Get disconnected 3 times during 2 hours of being placed on hold, transfered, and told Im a liar. What have I to lie about? I'm a paying customer of 1 year who'm waited a week to get cable service and took the morning off work so that I could be home during the window they requested I be home.
At 4:15 I call and get ahold of someone in CS who says she'll call Illinois (Chilicothi I think she said) which is allegedly where the dispatch center is located and try to get me answers. She insures me she will call me back in 10 mins. I think thats unreasonable and didn't expect her to so I wait and wait and wait and of course nothing
Finally at 4:45 I call back and this time the CS rep has a new fiction tale for me and I am told that he left a Service tag on my door the first time he was at my house... Oh yet another Lie. I then ask my elderly neighbor who sits in front of her window all day if she saw a truck outside. Of course not. I guess they come, call, leave a tag, leave and keep calling? Nonsense. My 4 year old can tell a better lie than these people
And with that 15 mins before the close of business I am told I must wait until AFTER thanksgiving ... A FULL WEEK to get cable.
Of course I have no options except to spread the word to the public and I plan to file a complaint with the BBB
