Our contract ended on the 31st October. We received an email stating the returns packaging would be sent out. But nothing arrived after two weeks...
So we got in contact using the VM chat and arranged for another set to be sent out. But nothing arrived after two weeks...
So once again, we contacted VM chat to complain. This time at least we received another duplicate email (received 21/12/16) stating packaging would be sent out. But nothing arrived after two weeks...
Last Sunday (8/01/17), giving up on the chat route we decided to request packaging over the phone. Instead we were assured that the original packaging had been sent out and it should arrive soon. However still nothing arrived after one week of calling.
An original email + three requests for packaging, yet nothing but broken assurances from Virgin Media. How long are we reasonably expected to further pursue this? All whilst being under threat of charges for not returning loaner equipment?
This is a last resort to get some sort of remedy by complaining publicly. Can somebody on the forum team help work out what is going wrong here?
Yes I believe it is a rip off. I recently left VM and paid my last bill at the end January £50 . I was cut off on 9/02/2017/ They only refunded me £4. Although I paid 1 month in advance when joining VM . I requested a breakdown of my final bill but no one has provided one, they just state that the bill is correct. Have I been charge fo obsolete equipment? Because I was not sent a package to return their equipment. Following the above posts this seems to be a VM scam.
They obviously dont want old equipment but make it another way of ripping the customer off.
You don't pay in advance and then have that payment held for when you leave.
You're billed in advance each month, but the payment date is then during the billing period. So by the time you pay, you're using the services you're paying for.
Your first bill can be for up to two months as it's from the date of your install through to the first bill and then the billing period in advance. But again, by the time you pay your first bill, you've been using the services the payment is for.
All bills show a breakdown of the billing period, the same goes for the final bill generated after you leave.
