T-Mobile / beware of easy pay
On September 18, 2008 T-Mobile debited my bank account $318.61, $47.62 was a legitimate monthly service bill the remaining $270.99 was a restocking fee for a replacement phone that I never received (my phone is under warranty). They'd sent me the replacement phone in June and when I went to UPS to pick it up the box was not taped, damaged and empty. I refused delivery and immediately called T-Mobile, the representative assured me that there would not be a restocking fee for this phone, and sent a second replacement phone to me. I got that phone several days later and returned the defective phone per the instructions sent with the replacement phone. I have the UPS tracking print outs for both phone orders and spoke with four different customer service reps. and a customer service manager between the 18th and the 26th of September when I went to a local T-Mobile store to try to resolve this issue. Each of these people acknowledged that I'd been billed in error, each person could view the UPS tracking and acknowledged that I did not receive two replacement phones. It appears that customer service can only request the refund, another department, The Cash Refund Team, actually approves and issues the refund, this department has repeatedly denied my refund because the return tracking label in the box was not used. Since the 26th of September I have been working with a sales manager at the local store and to date October 10, 2008 I still do not have a refund. Unfortunately for me, I did not actually have $318.61 in my bank account at the time that T-Mobile debited my account so I have been charged another $175.00 in bounced check charges and another $50.00 in returned check fees from two other companies where I'd written checks and they bounced. I am now $495.99 behind with no end in sight. I speak to T-Mobile every day and cannot get past the customer service people to a person that actually has the authority to refund my monies to me. I have discontinued my EASY Pay option, but this can take up to two billing cycles so it is likely that eight days from now, my bank account will again be debited for my monthly service, sadly, there will not be sufficient funds to cover this debit so I will again be charged returned check fees and T-Mobile will probably suspend my service for non-payment. To make matters worse I have 12 months left on my contract so I will also be charged an early termination fee of $150.00.
