Microsoft Xbox Live / xbox live customer support and false charge

1 United Kingdom

I really hate Microsoft! I wanted to cancel my monthly Xbox Live subscription. I phoned up the correct Xbox Live customer support number and succesfully cancelled it. She told me that my subscription ended on the 25th February and she asked if I wanted to cancel it immediately or when the subscription ends. I picked immediately as it only had a day left.

Today, 26th February, I notice I have been charged for my Xbox Live subscription. I immediately called the support thinking that maybe it was just a mistake. The customer support person tells me that my subscription previously had infact billed on the 19th February. So this means I have just cancelled my subscription that wasn't ending a day later on the 25th February but infact it was the one that ended on the 19th March.

So I have now cancelled my subscription immediately which I was told at first ended the next day when infact it had a whole month left. The customer support agent told me that this was an error to whoever I called to cancel. She actually admitted that it was the other customer support person's problem. She then told me that she can not give refunds or reactivate my account.

I feel that this is no way to treat someone who has just had money taken from them with nothing given back. It may have only been £4.99 but it is still a problem as I feel robbed. I feel that their customer support let me down by telling me a false date which has caused me a loss of money or equally a loss of another month of xbox live.
