I am disgusted by the fact that Virgin Customer Services have just confirmed to me that a previous conversation I had, whereby I was offered (and accepted) a deal on international calls was all based on complete lies.
I have received a new online contract to sign which doesn't breakdown the prices so I rang to check I was going to be charged as I was told. Apparently not! I was told one thing - which was rubbish - then my account updated with something totally different. Having looked at the forums for the first time it seems I am not alone in being lied to.
It was also very difficult to actually get to speak to someone when calling 150. I have found the only way through to a person is to select the menu options for those wanting to leave Virgin!!
My query - should I have been sent an email following my original request to alter my contact and the offer which I accepted for my international calls??
I have just received my latest bill and it looked very odd to say the least. I wont bore you with the details but basically it simply didn't add up. I have just spent another hour on the phone to Customer Services! The lady I spoke to was actually trying to be as helpful as possible but even she could not make head nor tail of my bill - hence just over an hour on the phone!!
Following previous on line conversations credits and changes were made to my account but done so incorrectly and apparently no notes left as to what was done and why make it difficult for the next customer service person to decipher. It amounts to more credit being owed to me and an admittance that I was being overcharged.
My advice is to check and double check your bill!! If it doesn't make sense or is blatantly wrong, make a cup of tea, get some biscuits, take a deep breath and ring them to complain. Do not be fobbed off - it will take a while but that's why you got the tea and biscuits ready!!!!!
I'm obviously off to Google Sky and BT deals...!!!!
I have responded to your private mail to discuss this in more detail, however, I can confirm that full notes were added to your account to explain the actions previously completed. These were also done correctly in reference to what I advised in my private mail to you.
