Unexpected charge

I had an Appointment cancellation charge of £99 on my last bill which I queried via Chat on the day I received the bill.  They agreed it was incorrect but the charge has still be taken.  I have heard nothing more.  Do I have to wait until the next bill period to find out whether I will be refunded?

Re: Unexpected charge

Thanks for your post on our Community Forums Oomphless, and we're sorry to hear of the unexpected charge on the account.

 

When we issue a £99.00 charge on an account, this is usually due to an special request order being booked on the account

 

The reason why these are charged is due to the call out not being fault related - the most common type is when a customer requests the equipment to be relocated in their property

 

Can you confirm if you had an special request order booked in and what the recent visit was for?

 

Kindest regards,

 

David

Re: Unexpected charge

I had emails from Virgin giving two appointments for the installation of my mini box as they were unable to connect it in February when the main boxes were fitted as part of my new OOmph deal.  I queried by phone why there were two appointments (one am and the other pm on the same day) and was told that this was in case it took a long time.  The engineer called about 12 noon and completed the installation within half an hour.  I presume this meant that the other appointment was cancelled by the engineer as being unnecessary and that was how the £99 charge came up.  As I mentioned before,  I contacted Virgin on the day I received email notification of my bill via Chat and was told that the charge had been an error and would the bill would be changed.  However, I was debited for the £99 (plus normal amount).

I just want to make sure that I will get it back soon.

Regards
