Has anyone else been charged after cancelling sim card within 14 day cooling off period. I ordered a sim card and was offered a better deal by my current provider...here starts the beginning of my nightmare. The first time I rang I made it clear what the issue was and got put through to retention after having to ring 3 times. I explained what the issue was and got told that I would need to apply for a refund. I don't get it as I never used the sim card and it's clear that it was never used.
I rang again on day 10 to cancel the sim card and was told it would be cancelled but I was charged even after I asked for a new bill to be issued. So here I am having to pay for a service I've never used. Totally frustrated that this has become a nightmare despite 5 phone calls to Virgin media about this. What are my rights legally on this matter. So stressed out by this whole debacle that I am looking to cancel my broadband and other phone contract with them as well. Anyone got any advice? I'm thinking of complaining to the CEO as a last resort :'(
I have also tried to cancel during the 14 day cooling off period, and have also phoned several times. They will not allow me to cancel (even though I have quoted to them their own terms and conditions) and just keep hanging up on me when I push the point (nb: I have not been rude or offensive).
Sorry to hear that you have been charged. Im glad I have cancelled the direct debit - that they have managed to set up despite never sending me confirmation of the agreement.
My advice to you would be to contact Offcom, the regulator. As they are failing to adhere to peoples statutory rights.
