Experience from hell

Good afternoon,

I have just returned home having been working abroad for a couple of years and have returned to find that my elderly Mam's monthly bill very excessive for the service she is getting (£154.68p/m!). I then decided to step in and help her by trying to reduce her monthly bill as she struggles managing.

 I was given permission from my Mam (account holder) who has difficulty speaking on the phone to talk on her behalf. After a long time waiting period I finally managed to get trough to one of your call centre's in Asia where I spoke to a lady who proved very difficult in understanding and seemed very slow possibly due to a training issue. Fast forward eventually after venting my frustration I was passed onto a floor Manager who agreed for the bill to be reduced to £99p/m as I was ready to cancel the contract and move to Sky for the same price and package.

I am now just weary that she will continue to be overcharged as I am yet to receive a confirmation email like I was told and also my Virgin media doesn't display my new agreed package and bill.

Please could someone get back to me and I look forward to your response.

Kind regards,

Jordan Chapman

Re: Experience from hell

For anything account-specific like you're asking, the forum team here won't have access. You will need to call in by phone to clarify your package and bill.

Hi jappitts,

Thank you for your reply - that's annoying as getting through on telephone to the customer service team is always a nightmare with the long-waiting times and language barrier.

Much appreciated,

Re: Experience from hell

Try again - calling “Retentions” on 150 or 0345 454 1111 - options 1-1-4-5 "Thinking of leaving" - they are open 8am until 10pm but calling early (between 08.00-11.00) is usually best, you will usually get a UK call centre who’s staff are more informed and helpful.
