I had Virgin installed in Sep 2017. Phone and BB (although I don’t use the phoneline). During this installation, the engineer suggested I also have a phoneline back up box installed. I rejected this as I had not intention of using the phoneline.
Fast forward to February 2021, when an engineer turned up unannounced at my door to give me a ‘new, replacement’ back up box. I told him I didn’t need one and never had one, for reasons written above. He told me he had to give it to me, so I took it; it’s in the packaging in a drawer.
Since then, I have been inundated with phone calls, emails, and letters asking me to return my ‘original’ back up box from 2017. I have made numerous phone calls to Virgin (totalling several hours), and raised 2 complaints (of which I was told my complaint was resolved). On my last phonecall, I spoke to the only helpful advisor I have spoken to so far. He informed me he would update my account and I would receive no more correspondence regarding this phantom back up box from 2017.
The engineer who carried out my original installation has clearly said he has installed something he hasn’t, and I’m paying the price nearly 4 years down the line. I’m getting absolutely nowhere with my phone calls and complaints. I’ve been told this is a purely administrative error which should have been resolved. Would appreciate any advice anyone could provide - getting absolutely nowhere, two months later.
Are there any Virgin forum mods who could look into this for me?
As mentioned, I’ve been told this is a simple administrative fix during my last phonecall on 16th March, but I’m still receiving letters, emails and text messages about sending back a piece of equipment I’ve never had.
