Verizon / fraudulent charges

1 United States Review updated:
Contact information:

On June 16th, I could not get onto my internet. When I called Verizon tech support, they couldn't see why I was unable to get on. I was told by a Verizon worker later that a code they saw at the office showed there was a problem and they would send someone the following week at no charge to me. That week, I called and was told there was no appointment and that I would be billed if someone came. So I was forced to go to another carrier for internet. The Verizon Co. said that I asked to cancel my service. I explained that they needed to show my service as being canceled because of non function. I have been billed and billed since then. I feel that some government agency needs to help people who become victims of outrageous billing and bogus charges to the customer. I went to the Attorney General and waited 6-8 weeks to hear that Verizon didn't respond and that I could go to small claims court. I don't know that I can do that . I'm on a very small income. Is there anyone or anything that can be done about these unethical billing practices. Bottom line, I did not cancel my contract. Verizon refused to help me without getting more money.

    I was angry to see that i received a email from my credit bureau stating someone tarnished my credit report with negative infomation. When i investigated it further, I found AFNI had put the information on my credit report with. After calling them, this was no doubt a fraudulent account with Verizon, but what frustrated me more was that this was handled poorly, there was no attempt made to contact me at my correct address before it was put on my report, there was a fraud alert on all 3 reports but was overlooked. What was worse was the way the call was handled, their professionalism and the service reps' lack of knowledge and repsect. Overall a bad situation. I had to ask for a supervisor to handle the call! and now that i see that i am not the only one with this issue with AFNI and their fraudulent accounts, i feel that the Better Business Bureau should investigate these complaints with both AFNI and Verizon
