Netflix account hacked

Joining in

Strange that my previous posts on this issue have disappeared......  Just to repeat and like others have posted before.... We have a Netflix Premium subscription that we took out with VM. More than a month or so back we lost access to Netflix through the set-top box; the initial screen had changed to Spanish, all the user boxes were locked and you needed a pin to access.  When we tried to log on from another device our email was no longer recognised. We phoned VM customer care 4-5 times, the first time we were told the issue would be escalated and that our subscription would be refunded. To be fair on the first time we did get a call-back - the phone did ring but the VM representative hung up on me before I had a chance to speak but they left a message saying that because they had tried to contact me and I had not pursued the issue further they concluded the issue must have been resolved. When I phoned back customer care a bit aggrieved that nothing had changed  I was told that my issue had been resolved when it hadn't. Every subsequent call has always resulted in the same outcome, the issue will be escalated and the refund will be forthcoming (neither of these things have happened). The last time I called I was told this could only be resolved by Netflix, as others have found before, it can't as VM pay for the subscription and as my email address is no longer recognised by Netflix you are totally left with no where to go as no one seems to take responsibility for resolving the issue.

Interesting and going back to  my disappearing posts I did see fleetingly a response to my post presumably from a VM representative saying that they could see that someone from customer care had contacted me on this issue.....  THEY HADN'T!!!!!

We've been with VM for years but this issue is really exhausting our faith in the service, and you get the impression that  nefarious methods are being used to improve their statistics with regards resolving issues.
