IIRC, you are in the US. I can not say about your state but the State
Attorney General in Illinois (unlike Ohio) really gets after rip-off
artists like gd. We had switched long distance carriers nearly 8 years
before to Farm Bureau. Sprint originally called asking us to pay our
overdue (3 years) phone bill. I said I had never received a bill and if
they would send me an itemized bill I would be happy to pay it.
<Laughter>"We don't have records that go back that far." When I asked
how they knew I owed it they asked "Are you going to pay?" I repeated my
request for a statement and they hung up on me. This took place on 3
separate occasions before they turned it over to a collection agency.
Sprint did not "know" that we had switched LDC despite suddenly not
having to send us a bill for 6 years 4 months. When they started a
minimum monthly billing charge we had moved. The bills they were
erroneously sending could not be forwarded - the move was over a year old.
After a couple of letters to Sprint cc to the State Attorney General's
office and a letter from the SAG to me cc to Sprint, Sprint wrote a
letter of apology admitting that we did not owe them any money.
When I had a problem with a hotel in Ohio (the website stated the
waterpark was included - they charged us for it), I tried contacting the
Ohio SAG office first and got absolutely no help. I took screen
captures (recommend doing that if not already) of the pages stating the
standard rates included 4 waterpark passes. The home page and the FAQ
page both stated that was the case. I sent a letter (email is too easy
to ignore) to the hotel cc to the corporate offices with both screen
captures, got my money back and the website updated ;-)
HTH - Good luck
The first time I saw my wife I knew she was "Miss Right"
After we were married, I learned her first name is "Always"
