Virgin have completely messed up up my account and I can't get it resolved

Joining in

I have been with Virgin for 14 years but I think this might be the end of the line for me ...

I renewed my contract at the start of February 2024 for £81 per month.  After receiving the written contract, I decided to cancel the mini-box, taking the monthly payment to £76 per month.  All good.  The man on the phone stated that everything was in order and I dodn't need to do anything else.

It turns out that he cancelled the entire contract and (without my knowledge) I went onto a £175 per month contract.  Multiple phone calls later and I just cannot get this sorted.  To avoid me paying the wrong price, a Virgin employee cancelled my direct debit and I haven't received a bill - until the weekend when I got a final demand for £299!

Every phone call to Virgin takes 45 minutes or more.  No one can sort this out and I haven't had a response to my complaint.  I am going to have to pay the £299 as I need broadband ot work from home.  Honestly, it is farcical.

Has anyone else managed to sort out a situation like this and if so, how did you do it? Any help is greatly appreciated.

This happened to me many years ago , I had a faulty cable box replaced but they kept charging me for 2 , I got red demand letters and bill ended up being £100 of pounds a month, I was even cut off , made about 50 phone calls, they even sent a engineer to my house to count how many boxes and phone lines i had, he rang them back and said only one but they did not believe him their own engineer lol . A threat of legal action sorted it in the end , they knocked £2 off my next bill . Ask to speak to the manager and record the phone call first of all .
