I'm so sick and tired of vm refusing to honour a documented renewal contract offered to me and now they'r

Tuning in

Virgin are rubbish at customer service, responding to requests for help and acknowledging my repeated requests for clarification, a refund(they're overcharging me!) and confirmation of my request/notification of cancellation.

Absolutely rubbish. 

Would never recommend nor return to the. 

Ombudsman is the next time and energy wasting project to get refunded/compensation.

Most people, who report back on here, seem to speak quite highly of how the ombudsman handled their complaint in a balanced and professional way and that the process was straightforward.

If you have not done so already, you have to have logged a formal complaint with VM first of all (that is likely to be a time and energy wasting project but is a required first step before the ombudsman).

OFCOM will welcome any information on an unhappy cancellation experience.

They launched an investigation into VM on 13 July 2023 specifically into VM's cancellation and complaints processes.

Case ref. no. and an email at the bottom of the above page or submit with same info via the contact form

Submitting information won't help your individual complaint but it will contribute to the OFCOM investigation and it sounds like your experience is directly relevant to the terms of reference of the investigation.
