Hi, I recently moved house and couldn't get virgin in the area so i was forced to cancel. I had the tivo box and broadband modem for a month before throwing it away not thinking i would need to give it back. Now I've just got a email about sending it back and if i don't i will be charged over £100 which i cant afford.
Really annoyed that they wouldn't have told me on the phone when i canceled to hold onto the equipment to send back.
What to do now because i don't have the money to pay for it.
Clearly an honest mistake on your part but in Virgins defence it is their equipment. This is almost certainly not the way to deal with it though. they are hardly likely to get back to you on here when they do not get back about the massive problems they are having with thier Tivo service a the moment.
Only thing to do is own up and be honest. When you took out TiVo the contract would've stated that its their equipment and always belongs to them. Ignorance is no defence I'm afraid. You may be able to come to an arrangement with them.

Upon account cancellations, prepaid returns packaging should have been ordered for your equipment return.
