Time Warner Cablecharged for services after cancellation

i have been a TWC customer for over 8 years! So you could imagine my disbelief when supervisor, Vanessa tells me, "you've been paying for it, meaning you knew you had it.. " OR "there is nothing that will justify me crediting your account for this." Ok, cancel my service "No problem, ma'am, I will get that taken care of today."

I was floored, one, by the fact there wasn't ever one "let me help you with that". Also her attitude with a customer and lack of willingness to help.

Background: about two years ago I noticed Sports Pass for $3.95 on my account. I had no clue what it was, didn't order it so I cancelled it. They took care of it (so I thought). Unfortunate for me, I never check my bills. I have paperless billing so I never get them. I call to make my payment over the phone because I don't write checks. Shame, on me.

Last Tuesday I logged in online to see about service in the area because the internet wasn't work. I pull up the bill "just because" and realize not only am I still being charged the Sports Pass, I'm being charged $12.95 since May for VOD. I didn't order VOD, I don't watch it - haven't since it was ordered "by the remote" at the end of April and couldn't even find it when I went back through the channels! I asked if they could see if it's been utilized because that's over $50 over the past few months. Additionally, just over $50 for the Sports Pass. I suggested pulling my call from when I called in a couple years ago (because I NEVER, EVER call customer service) she said that was ridiculous, she doesn't have time for that and that's when things went down hill. I was seeing RED by this point, I refuse to pay my last bill (and will dispute on credit), turning in HD box tomorrow and moving to AT&T Uverse and DirecTV. I would never, ever recommend TWC to another individual.

    I DO agree with you that Time Warner Cable has awful customer service, but at least you can get a human being on the phone! Wait, oh just wait, til you have problems with the same 'mystery charges' added to your AT&T can't GET a real person to talk to, and IF you do that person will tell you that you have reached the wrong dept and they will transfer you to the correct one, only to give you the run-a-round of automated responder over and over. I've been there and done that with BOTH big conglomerates! HOW they continue to do so is exactly what you admitted to~they bank on paperless billing and people who NEVER LOOK AT THEIR MONTHLY BILL. I refuse to deal with AT&T at all and have scaled down my TWCable to the ultra basic of 20 local channels and a 'deal' on internet that, when it is timed out I will just use my smart phone. It's a SAD world we live in now.
