Closing Virgin Account after leaving - (Refund, Return of equipment etc)

I closed my account with VM a week ago, and i've received notification that i'm overpaid by just over £70.

How is this refunded, my account was previously paid for me by one of my sons via Direct Debit. Will it be paid back into the same account as the Direct Debit, or will a cheque be sent. and If so will it be in my name as the VM account holder, or in his name as the named person on the Direct Debit.

I have in addition returned equipment as requested,  which according to Yodel/Collectplus tracking is on it's way back to you. Can provide tracking details if necessary.

Finally, the virginmedia/ntl email on the account will need to be deactivated once everything is resolved, otherwise it could potentially be a security risk as it won't be monitored regularly moving forwards. How quickly after account closure is this shut down?

Re: Closing Virgin Account after leaving - (Refund, Return of equipment etc)

Hi scotty2, 

Thank you for reaching out to us here on the Community. 

I am sorry to hear you have now left us. 

With any credit that is owed, we will send this via cheque to the account holder at the registered address. This is usually within 45 days of the disconnection date. 

The returns process can take up to two weeks once it has been sent. As soon as the equipment has been processed, we will update the account to reflect this. 

The email address will remain active for up to 90 days following your disconnection so we would recommend backing up any important emails that you wish to keep. If you wish for the email address to be deactivated sooner, please do let us know and we can request this for you. 

Thanks, 

 

 

Nat

Re: Closing Virgin Account after leaving - (Refund, Return of equipment etc)

Hi Nat, Thanks for the prompt reply. Since posting this earlier today, i've received an email confirmation of  return of equipment back to VM, so that's positive.

I would like the registered email deactivated asap for the reason stated earlier, if you are able to assist in this that would be greatly appreciated.

if you could PM me whatever details you require, EG. Account no , alternative contact email etc, I'll be happy to provide.

Re: Closing Virgin Account after leaving - (Refund, Return of equipment etc)

Hi Natalie, could you or one of your forum team confirm for me where my cheque is being sent to. As yet it hasn't arrived, To explain, Although the address i was registered at with Virginmedia is my main home, i've had to move out whilst renovations are taking place. I did mention that when i cancelled the service,

I provided the address over the phone i'm currently residing at (my sons) when cancelling, but would like to know whether i need to ask people at my Registered address with Virginmedia to keep an eye out for it, or whether it'll come to my son's address.

Regards
