Telkom SA SOCtelkom / openserve fibre


Hi All

I live in a complex (Equestria Estate) and fibre was implemented.

I have/had a 10mb/s line for R649 per month. Account number: ND24714903

Telkom provided services of NuDebt to render R1799.17 from me. Ref: [protected]

(1) Was never consulted why, what is the problem since Telkom has all my detail, I have had many accounts with them over the years my cell number and banking details email address you name it.

(2) Never received a invoice of any kind (if so please provide proof) because the NuDebt letter seen to find my just fine. I have communicated as best I could. To day has no one phoned me in this regard ever to sort this out.

(3) Since I could not get anyone to assist me in this matter (no invoice) I stopped using any of the fibre service (Please feel free to check my records).

Sending letters and treating me to legal action? The consumer act protects me, I am the victim here. Telkom has has failed in its duties to contact me before I was handed over for legal action.
