STC poor customer service

For the last six weeks I have been trying to get a response from STC re their wireless Internet service which is billed to my residential phone line. I have used their902, 906, 907 numbers, facsimile service, ecare, [protected], [protected], and also visited their headquarter in Alkhobar where I dealt with their manager. No one is able to respond tome or resolve my complain. They have failed to provide the service to my wireless simm for 2 month. They are charging me SR299.00/month. They ask me to pay then complain. They are not responding to any of my emails, facsimiles or personal request to ratify the account. I do not know if they cancelled the service as per my request or not because the service is not available for me for the last two month. No one at STC has the ability to answer or call me or give me any reasonable assurance of what is going on. Their motto should be ALWAYS AGAINST YOU, also, DFFICULT LIVE FOR OUR CUSTOMERS and finally as a friend told me STC= STEAL THE CUSTOMER. My account number is [protected]
Anyone how might have a clue to help me get out of this deep hole!

STC deduction of sr 1.30 every day for no reason

Dear Sir,

Last 10 days (since 17th Sep), everyday SR 1.30 is being deducted from my pre-paid stc sim for no reason.

Kindly stop this and refund the monies deducted so far to my account.
***********************************************************88888
After my complaint dt 26th Sep, The deduction of SR 1.30 stopped for JUST 1 day yesterday.

Today AGAIN the SR1.30 has been deducted.

Can SOMEONE please take corrective action? This is not funny at all and is now getting on my nerves.

STC cheating by forigners

Some body called me from the number +[protected] and he informed me that I have won 200, 000sr via lucky draw. Then he gave me as proof that he is calling from stc that on the sim you will find the number 899660 when I checked I found that he is correct. Then he told me to that give me your iqama number and full name according to your iqama. I gave him then he informed me that for further process you have to call his manager on the number +[protected]. When I called him he told me to give him pin code of total1500sr through sawa card. And till then hold your phone, then I understood that he is trying to make me fool. God helped me and I kept save.

This is for your kind information.

Here`s a step by step guide how to attempt to get rid of those annoying regular charges by STC.

Step 1: Send a blank SMS to the following two numbers: one to 800828 and one to 800444. If your phone does not allow you to send a blank SMS, enter a space character and send it.
Step 2: Wait. You may have to wait a few hours or even a day or two to get a reply from both numbers. Wait until you have recevied the reply from both numbers.
Step 3: In the replies, you will (hopefully) see a list of services that you somehow got subscribed to. To unsubscribe, you need to send the list number back to the number that you received the SMS from. So, for example, if you get a response from 800828 and you see in the list: `1 Facebook - 86677` then you need to send `1` (without quotes) to 800828.
Step 4: Wait. Nothing may happen for a while. Give it a few hours, or even a day or two.
Step 5: If you are lucky, you will get a message confirming that you have unsubscribed from the service. In this case, send another blank SMS to the same number to make sure you have unsubscribed.

the quicknet that i purchased for a year plan was a total scam from stc. they mentioned in there advertisement along with the router that it could provide a max speed of 150mbps. i knew that it is impossible to reach such high speed of 150mbps specially in this part of the world. but at least, if 10mbps speed would be acceptable. however right after installation of the router, i found out that the max seed it could provide in my area is only 0.90 mbps. i ranthe next day and try to return the item but of no success. i was just promised that it could be fixed after 48 hours. i was patient enough to wait for the 48 hrs as promised, however month passed by nothing happens and if fact it went worst. the 0.90 mbps went down to 0.27mbps lately. i was just told to every person that i spoke with thru phone (customer service) or personally from their office that there is nothing that they can do. it is every individuals complaint and you have to wait for the next 48 hours after your case is filed. or should we say until the purchased plan is reached?
Basically, STC just need your money and they don't care if they satisfy you on the type of service that you paid for. it's horrendous. i will have all my stc account stop and suggest to all not to purchase their services as it is all fraud.

Here`s a step by step guide how to attempt to get rid of those annoying regular charges by STC. Step 1: Send a blank SMS to the following two numbers: one to 800828 and one to 800444. If your phone does not allow you to send a blank SMS, enter a space character and send it. Step 2: Wait. You may have to wait a few hours or even a day or two to get a reply from both numbers. Wait until you have recevied the reply from both numbers. Step 3: In the replies, you will (hopefully) see a list of services that you somehow got subscribed to. To unsubscribe, you need to send the list number back to the number that you received the SMS from. So, for example, if you get a response from 800828 and you see in the list: `1 Facebook - 86677` then you need to send `1` (without quotes) to 800828. Step 4: Wait. Nothing may happen for a while. Give it a few hours, or even a day or two. Step 5: If you are lucky, you will get a message confirming that you have unsubscribed from the service. In this case, send another blank SMS to the same number to make sure you have unsubscribed.

STC wrong billing on jood package

I have applied for Jood Package. My telephone number allotted is [protected]. My account number is [protected]. I got DSL connection only on Feb 23, 2010. My first invoice was dated as on March 10, 2010. In that first invoice, an additional amount of SR. 488.89 has been added as previous invoice.

As this is my first invoice and DSL connection is for only 16 days - from the service starting date 23.02.2010 to 10.03.2010- how it is possible for previous invoice balance? My account is billed wrong. I have lodged complaints thro' 907 twice [after 100 times tried to catch the agent]. Till now, I haven't find my corrected invoice at STC website.

When I approached STC Bagdadiyah Office, they said to contact Sales thro' toll free number [protected]. Countless times I tried this number and no physical response at the end. Only recorded messages were passing on.

Pls review and correct my invoice and inform me accordingly.

I have also home broadband internet at my home and from last three months they are issuing my stc bill 298 while I have activated my service 149 per month. More then hundred time I called to customer care and went to stc office but no body is ready to solve my billing problem.stc companies eating people and getting double bill every month. This is Islamic country and here they don't know what is Islam, what is haram what is halaal.very bad service from stc.Inshallah all works of stc who is doing these activities will go to jahannum.

STC lucky draw scam

Somebody called me from “+[protected]”, whose name was mohammed iqbal. He said that he is a supervisor in geo mobile company and calling from dubai. He said that my stc sim serial number starting from 899660 is in the list of the lucky draw which include sawa, watani, mobily and other mobile companies, and you won 200, 000 saudi riyals, if you give me pin number of two vouchers of 350 riyals than i can process the bank transfer in your card pin numbers and show to these cards with iqama copy to al - rajhi bank to collect the money. So i gave him pin number of two vouchers of 350 sr total of 700 sr after collecting the voucher numbers he hold me for twenty minutes and then said that half of the bank draft number is appeared and remaining will come when i give him more two of same value voucher’s pin numbers. Then i understood that this is a scam and i cursed him because i lost my 700 sr.

On 30th June 2015 i received call about winning 20000 KD and they ask me to pay 280 KD to release amount. I paid 280 KD and then he send me one cheque on whats app and told to pay 470 kd so they will send 10 digit code and i can clear cheque from Al Mulla exchange. I paid 470 kd then they called me and gave me 5 digit and said to pay 630 kd for remaining 5 digit. I paid 630 kd and they provided only 3 digit and said when u will pay 480 kd 3 days advertisement cost on al jazeera channel they will release remaining 2 digit. I paid same. Then they gave me remaining two digits. Then they called me this is international lucky draw from kuwait, Saudi and dubai and your file is cleared now and proceed to saudi. They asked me to pay 730 kd as saudi tax to release money. I paid same then called me and said congratulation your file is clear and proceed to kuwait and to receive money you have to pay 930 kd. Then i stopped paying. Almost i lost 2500 KWD. My bad luck. We are giving suggestions to ther not to believe such kind of call but dont know how i did that. They have very good communicating skill to hipnotise you. Really my all bank account emptied. I have attached here cheque images so like us no one can get cheat.

Today i received the similar call from the number [protected] and the person, urdu speaking may be indian or pakistani, told me that u r very lucky to have won SAR 200, 000 from STC. then he told that he will inform me the procedure to get the money and was asking me how much time you willl take to go to Alrajhi nearest you. To make the impression he informed me the numbers which i used to call from my SIM. he said since three days on different tv channles my SIM nyumber is shown as winner so please dont disclose to any one that u are the winner otherwise someone will put you in trouble.
People please be aware of these fradulents.
Immediately I threatened him that you are scam and i will lodge a complaint against you only then he stopped calling.

Hello, i have applied to get a fingerprint in Hera District Jeddah Albaik. but the service person told me your fingerprint is not available in the Ministry of Interior. even though i was sure i fingerprinted long time ago. but he insisted and said your fingerprint doesnt exist. I checked the MOI webbage and it shows my fingerprint is available. Can you fix this problem and make sure your employees do not make things hard again. Now my simcard can be banned because of this idiot.

I have taken a 3 months contract of quick net 4g with Stc . The Internet connection is absolutely rubbish, barely works for 2 to 3 hours in the evening and the ear of the day and night you can hardly check your email let alone watch videos or news. When I contacted them they denied problems at all and all they repeated saying was "we are here to serv the respect of our company " very strange use of words as they have no respect whatsoever for their services and the customers that use it.
Avoid STC, they are by far the worst internet provider I came across. Nothing good, just waste of hard earned money.

It's like they are doing me a favor. Never ever have I seen such incompetent people!
