Charge double on bill and fexi fee for moving address

I would like to know why I've been charged £150 on my new bill when all I did was move address and said it would only cost £20 to move , I've been charged fexi fee as well I had to pay out my last bit of money today because of this to stay connected because it would upset my baby son without internet , phoned virgin they was very rude , had me on hold for over hour which has cost me as well, it also looks like they made me a new account when I already had one and only asked to move , I think they should give me £150 credit back for what they have done to me, because of this I'm thinking of moving to another broadband provider now , that was last bit of my wages I had to pay virgin and all I ask virgin for is to move address , well out of order from virgin , how about you give me £150 credit for being a loyal customer, can't believe had to pay that much and fexi fee for moving address , I'm going to put a complaint in

Re: Charge double on bill and fexi fee for moving address

Hi @James85852021 

Sorry to see there seems to have been a lot of confusion on your bill when moving home.

There is a £20 fee to cover the cost of transferring your services to your new address.

It's possible that VM didn't take a final payment from your old address and instead transferred it across to your new address.

Double check your bank statements as that may show that VM haven't taken a direct debit for that month as you were in the process of moving so that the  bill would have been transferred across to your new address.

I'm not sure what you mean by a "fexi fee"

The following page and screenshot below should explain your first bill when moving.

They changed my account number and charge me a £45 fexi fee as well and all I asked for was to move house I had to spend the last bit of my wages to pay it today I think they should give it me back as it's there mistake somewhere and cost me loads call cost to them then get put on hold for nearly a hour

Re: Charge double on bill and fexi fee for moving address

Hello I have the same thing, 

I moved house and now my regular monthly bill has been doubled, I would normally pay £29.99 a month and after moving I was charged £131.64.

 Not only that but now I cannot log into the app as it also changed my account number.
