MultiChoice Africa / DSTVovercharged (debit order)

Mo Oct 03, 2019 Review updated:

I'm supposedly on Price Lock (R759) but:

1. On 2 September, an amount of R771.58 was debited from my STD Bank Account instead of R759 which means DStv took R12.58 more than they should have
2. On 9 September at about 18:10, Thokozile from DStv confirmed that due to the above, my account would be debited R746.42 on 2 October (NOT R759)
3. She stated that from 2 November onwards, R759 would be debited each month as per normal
4. BUT then again on 2 October, R769 was debited from my account

They do not reply to my numerous emails. I called you again today and Sandy told me to email Price Lock but the email could not deliver.

It might not be a lot of money to some but I want my money back. Last months R771.58 resulted in a shortfall for one of my other debit orders. Not that DStv cares.

DStv is as useful as a wooden frying pan.

    Same here, though I was debited R1069 instead of R759. Even after the extra debit, they disconnected me twice. No one has come back to me. Such poor service, I have been a customer for almost 7 years & this is just unacceptable.
