MultiChoice Africa / DSTV — refund on a double payment
I accidentally made two payments on my DSTV account, as I did an EFT via ABSA bank and the first payment didn't show, so I assumed it didn't go through, however on the 8th of May I realised the mistake when checking my bank account, as I had to pay my Telkom account and all of a sudden there were no funds available to make the payment. I contacted Multichoice and spoke to a lady Katekani (great person and very helpful), however after 32 emails, copies of my bank statement (to proof that I have made two payments and Katekani also confirmed that she can see that I made two payments on their system) and my ID copy I am still waiting for the refund. Even after she confirmed that the refund has been successfully submitted and I just need to check my account, I received an automated e-mail this morning to request the same documents again and the person (Sylvester) who sent the email cannot be contacted in any way.
If you provide me with an email, I can foward you the related communication.
First of all why do they need proof of payment if they can see on their side that I made two payments, why does it take so long to conclude such a small query. I believe that their staff is either incompetent or their system is set up to stall customer payments for their own benefit, which is against the consumer law of South Africa.
