On April 18th, I asked (via webchat) for my Broadband account to be cancelled, I had been given my notice at work, had to look for more employment, although leaving Virgin wasn't what I wanted to do, it was somewhat of a relief that I wouldn't have to look for the extra money each week.
I used the Optout2023 letter that Virgin had sent me prior.
The lady I was speaking to said that there was a 30 Day notice period and that 'was it my final request' (she had previously spent 20 or so minutes trying to sell me cheaper deals)
I replied "yes, it's my final option"
She said (I have screenshots)
"Your request has now been completed. A final bill will be produced once your services have been disconnected, a refund will be processed within 45 days of the discconection date. Your disconnection date is 18th May."
Well, I got my bill in today, to be paid by 14th June however, when I clicked in to my account, I still have an active contract with Virgin and it says 7 months remaining.
I called my wife (I am at work) and she had plugged the Virgin router back in (was all boxed up nice) and the Broadband is still active and running.
I understand about the 'final biill' part... but how am I suppose to get my account disconnected and confirmed it is disconnected.
Any suggestions please ?
