Rip off vulnerable customers

So, I had negotiated a good saving for my elderly parents in law whilst maintaining their current package.......... or so I thought.

 

just found out they have been charged nearly £100 of call charges in 2 months as they keep in touch during lockdown and now also forced to pay £2 extra pm for paper billing even though this was previously discounted and they don’t have broadband or email.

When investigating further it turns out when the package was set up on new price they did not include the multi talk 1000 they previously had even though it was clear nothing had to change.

to make matters worse when I asked for a refund I was told we were informed on the call and in writing we were loosing that even though neither happened.

 

safe today a complaint has been raised.

 

what chance have the rest of us got if this is how the elderly and vulnerable are treated
