They are charging me for services I did not receive. They have failed to provide proper documentation. Customer servces reps have hung up on me.I am being charged for services 1/5 through 2/4 when I cancelled services on 1/7. I was not in breach of my contract and I was told 12/30 that I would not be charged after I cancelled service. I did not sign a contract to extend my service nor agree to any terms. I have been called several times a day for several months, no contact is given in the voice mails. When I have talked to a rep, I have asked, on more than one occasion, for a copy of my billing statement. Statements received do not include past payments or reflect my service being cancelled. During the most recent call I tried to escalate the issue and was directed through 3 different people. The last person said they were going to immediately speak to their supervisor, then I was disconnected. I have not been called back even though they have my current phone number on file. They claim I owe a past due balance for the month of December, but have failed to provide my payment history. They are demanding I pay for service not rendered. The customer service representatives have not taken adequate steps to address my concerns. I am now being threatened that my account is going to collections. I have received an excessive amount of calls, which border on harassment, which do not provide me with information to return the calls. I have exhausted my options for disputing their claims due to a lack of adequate response on their part.

Desired Settlement
I would like my account to reflect only services rendered. I should not owe any additional money.

BBB Complaint Process

Your complaint will be forwarded to the company within two business days. The company will be asked to respond within 14 days, and if a response is not received, a second request will be made. You will be notified of the company's response when we receive it (or notified that we received no response). Complaints are usually closed within 30 business days.


BBB began including text of consumer complaints and business responses in BBB Business Reviews on January 1, 2010 for complaints filed on that date and thereafter. This includes all complaints that meet our reporting guidelines and that are filed electronically. We also report on the resolution of the complaint, as determined by BBB.

BBB asks advertisers to prove their claims, change ads to make offers more clear to consumers, and remove misleading or deceptive statements.


What government actions does BBB report on?

BBB reports on known government actions that are relevant to the business's marketplace dealings with the public.
