Overchagred by £453 in 6 months

Joining in


I have been a VM customer for many years and recently renewed my contract in May 2023. Since then, the amount charged has varied wildly from the agreed contract, sometimes up to almost 3x the agreed amount despite no additional services being used. I have spent in excess of 5 hours on the phone to customer service, all of whom have been as helpful as possible and have acknowledged there is a significant error on VM's end. However, this issue keeps happening and the billing amount has again this month gone up for no reason. In total, I calculate I have overpaid by £453.08 since 31 May 2023. Can somebody with enough authority to correct this issue once and for all please take a look so I can stop taking up my (and your customer service team's) time? I suggest you also take a look at how this has happened because it seems pretty scandalous that I am being charged such different amounts to what was agreed.

Start formalising things with an official complaint with a view to escalating to Ombudsman Services.

Thanks for the response. I have spoken to the team but the last I heard is that they are trying to make changes but these require manager approval and will get back to me. I haven't heard since last week
