Complaint: I sent a disconnection notice on October 1, 2014 to disconnect XXX-XXX-XXXX acct*****. I sent a disconnection notice on Oct. 1, 2014 to ******* to disconnect XXX-XXX-XXXX acct:****. I was told that the only way I can disconnect service is through an e-mail.( I email ******* on 10/1/14 to disconnect) I ask for a confirmation letter to make sure that it was disconnected. I was told that the e-mail was the only requirement. Now Race telecommunication has sent me to collection effective August 28, 2015. I just received the notice today Sept. 10, 2015.

Desired Settlement: I do not owe this company any money. Please have them remove me from any outstanding bill.

Business Response: Final Consumer Response /* (2000, 8, 2015/09/15) */ Race Telecommunication has resolved my dispute with the amount owed. I would like to retract my complaint. Thank you BBB for responding so quickly. Respectfully, *******

Additional Notes

Complaint: refund the fraudulent charges. i cancelled service and was still charged. multiple times told it would be corrected, but never was. Race Communications has been scamming me. I moved and cancelled my service months ago and they continued to bill me. they claimed to send a technician to retrieve the router, all lies. they said the charges would be reverse in the next billing cycles, all lies.

Desired Settlement: refund the fraudulent charges

Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 11, 2015/06/17) */ Mr. *********, We did receive an order cancellation from you but have never received the equipment that you rented from us. We have stopped by the apartment we provided your service to several times, but have not been successful in retrieving the gear because the door was never answered. We have tried to talk to the leasing agent at the apartment, and were informed that the unit has not been vacated and is still under contract. We have told you that all rental charges from when you sent us the cancellation notice would be credited to you once you have made arrangements to return the equipment you are renting.
