Homeless - Cancellation Fee, Poor Customer Service

Hi,

 

Ive been a customer of VM along with my family members who all use the service for YEARS.

I have been made homeless through no fault of my own and was evicted by the landlord on the 17th October, i have no new fixed address and am staying with freinds and family or at a hostel. So naturally i do not want to keep paying the subscription for them to use in my former house now.

online chat agents will not let me cancel and are saying i need to pay an early termination fee as its 'my choice' to cancel, this is a shocking lack of empathy and customer service to anyone never mind someone who has been a good customer and paid probably thousands over the years. It wasnt my choice to get removed from the house.

ive read on this forum others have had this sorted, im not sure what more to do now other than just cancel the direct debit

Thanks to Jones9376 for PMing with me. We were able to take the details and evidence we need and offer further support with disconnecting their services, without any fees due to their circumstances. 

This has now all been sorted and resolved, with returns packaging for any equipment on its way to an alternative address.

Hi Jones9376 👋 Welcome to community! 
Thank you for posting - so sorry to hear about your change in circumstances, and your experience trying to get this sorted with us. I appreciate it must be of great concern. 

If you move to a non-serviced address we waive any early disconnection fees as part of your cancellation process. There is just a form to complete where you would send us evidence of your new address. (You are sent this on the day of the service disconnection, with 30 days to return any proof). In your circumstances, we will just need to get you to send us proof of the eviction. 

I will send you a PM to confirm a few bits of account information and we can arrange getting this sent over to us, and offer further support with your case. You can find the PM in the top right corner of the page in your Inbox. 📩 We can then return to this public thread with another update when possible. Thank you for your patience in the meantime!

Wishing you all the best. 🌞
