Re: Urgent help - No service and no help from VM

Thankyou DiscoSi,

Definitely helpful advice 👍👌

I'm calling twice a day at the moment.... Always told something different, I've got to pay for appointments, lied to and empty promises.... I have everything recorded and have already put in GDPR requests

Re: Urgent help - No service and no help from VM

The cisas process can be a bit of a hassle but they usually side with the consumer and by the sounds of it you've got it all well documented which they'll need in order to investigate. You do really need to have gone as far as you can with Virgin's own complaint process though before your case becomes strong. Good luck and I hope it works out for you, most of all though take care of yourself as I know first hand how stressful this all can be. You're talking to a 2 x successful cisas case winner.

Agreed

A key tip with CISAS is to keep on top of it, provide as much (online) documentation as you can and, if things are not moving along, ring CEDR (CISAS) to chase progress.

Set out what you want clearly - such as the issues resolved, faults fixed, termination payment waived, and compensation - but justify the later with reasonable arguments.

I've also been though it (3 times now) as I'd exhausted other avenues.

Good luck with it.  Don't let it get you down.

Re: Urgent help - No service and no help from VM

Thanks for coming back to us @Jackwhybrow95.

 

I haven't been able to get any update as of yet but I have chased this with the area managers to see if they can get a response for me ASAP.

 

Regards,

Re: Urgent help - No service and no help from VM

I've waited in again all day as the engineer this morning told me KIER or someone to ru in a cable would come today after talking to his manager this morning and also an agent at midday told me the same that someone would be here today and a manager would call me back..... so far nothing.... I've lost all confidence so far in believing anything anyone tells me.... I'm close to just taking my money elsewhere - if I don't get a courtesy call today and a new cable tomorrow I will be requesting a deadlock letter and going to CISAS and pursuing this further to claim back costs and to leave without any termination fees.

Re: Urgent help - No service and no help from VM

I am sorry for the wait in this @Jackwhybrow95.

 

We are working as quick and as hard as possible to get this resolved for you.

 

We are just waiting for some information from the area field manager as previously stated above, if you wish to take this further then please follow the steps on our 'code of conduct' page.

 

Regards,

Hayley

Re: Urgent help - No service and no help from VM

Hayley,

Still sat here waiting... another whole day lost after promises from two virgin staff members that it would be done today!! 

Why have I been told this and no one has come or called me?!?! 

If you where a small local company I'd have taken this to small claims courts and handed to my solicitors to sort weeks ago! Why do you think its fair to make your customers loose money!?!?! 

No call from a manager as I was also promised! Why not??????

Re: Urgent help - No service and no help from VM

Sorry that we haven't been able to get anything further back from the team yet @Jackwhybrow95.

 

I have now chased this once again with them and have included the regional manager in the contact with the team, I will be in touch as soon as I hear anything back from them.

 

Regards,

Steven_L
