Dear Virgin Media Staff
I approach VM through whastapp chat on 25/1, asking the earliest day I could schedule a disconnection, so that there will be no early disconnection fee, the VM representative did not tell me this 30-day notification period.
When I asked VM how to avoid the early disconnection fee and further usage beyond the promotional offer on 25/1, I was then told by a VM representative called Andrea that I have to approach VM 30 days prior to the contract end date the earliest so as to avoid these charges.
However when I tried to reach VM yesterday on 20/2, the representative told me that there is something called 30-day notice period.
I have clearly mentioned my intention on 25/1 but the VM representative, Andrea, didn't tell me the full picture to get through. I was misled.
If VM requires customer to approach EXACTLY 30 days prior to the contract end date to avoid any disconnection fee and further usage beyond the promotional offer, why didn't the representative, Andrea, tell me on 25/1 ??? In particular I have already mentioned clearly my intention.
I should have mentioned my intention on 25/1. Why didn't the VM representative, Andrea, on that day tell me that I had to approach VM EXACTLY 30 days prior to the contract end date if there is something like 30-day notice period??? It was totally MISLEADING.
It is unfair if VM tells me today (actually it was yesterday becoz i have approached VM yesterday about this but the chat was ended by VM becoz it was over 9pm) there is something called 30-day notification period, BUT NOT on 25/1 when I approach VM for the first time on this issue.
Why didn't the VM representative tell me such thing on 25/1 when I ask for a disconnection exactly on the contract end date, without any early disconnection fee and further usage beyond the promotional offer????
I reached VM through Whatsapp again earlier today. The agent told me that the next (final) bill will be £66.25 for the service from today (21/2/2023) to the contract end date (23/3/2023). However, the last bill I paid was from 7/2/2023 to 6/3/2023. Was I billed doubly ??????????
I hope the friendly VM staff here could help. Why does an innocent customer have to bear extra unwanted cost caused by a misleading agent ???? It is TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE !!!!!!
