I would like to raise a complain against your Cancellation and Retention team, I phoned at 9:28am today to cancel my current 12 month contract with 30 days notice and was offered £29 a month to stay. I declined the offer and was told that I would receive an email in 72 hours confirming cancellation.
After the quick call I did some sums and thought the deal wasn’t so bad and phoned again to accept the £29 offer at 10:02am today. The representative then told me that the offer was gone now that I had requested cancellation and that the best offer I could get would be £35 a month. I was not told this would be a final offer and the representative apologised for being misinformed. I asked whether a member of retentions would contact me after cancellation but was told that didn’t happen anymore due to GDPR.
As a loyal customer, I feel this situation shouldn’t have happened and would like to complain against the complaints and retention team for misinforming me around my cancellation. If I was told that would be the final offer and I could not come back then I would have just accepted on the first call.
But now as a busy student with exams, I now have to switch broadband supplier because the retentions team sped through my cancellation procedure? I now feel I should cancel my Virgin Mobile contract too and leave Virgin Media all together if they do not come back with a deal again.
you wanted to cancel. you was offered a deal and said no. and you are mad that they did what you told them. Deals always change. what you are offered now might not be offered in 10 minutes. that is how it works
you have no grounds for a complaint. What will your complaint be... "The team did what i asked"
