Business Response Contact Name and Title: ****** ****** Contact Phone: XXX-XXX-XXXX Contact Email: ********@utcoffice.net Our records indicate that Mr. **** called at 11:08 a.m. on April 30, 2014, and was not at home to troubleshoot. He would be calling back later in the day. Mr. **** called back around 6:30 p.m. and did leave a message. Our technical support department returned the call and Mr. **** stated he did not have a problem.
On occasion there is a wait if all representatives are on the phone. We do provide an option to leave a message for a call back if a customer cannot hold.
At United we pride ourselves with excellent customer service. I apologize Mr. **** had a longer than normal wait time and **** work on further ways to improve our hold times.
Complaint I called and made a payment over the phone a while back then a few months later, when my payment was not originally taken out, it was debited off. So in November I had my payment (supposedly) taken over the phone. It took them over a month to process the debit charge. Unexpectedly around Christmas the money was debited off our bank account card. They did not want to admit their mistake and was pointing blame at debit card company so we filed a dispute and got the money back. Then 3 months later they are now adding it back on and messing up our budget and I do not think we should have to pay for their mistake. When trying to work this out with them we are treated like we are in the wrong here and I do not feel like this company is professional in any way. Horrible customer service and billing practices.
Nov. 7 called and made payment over phone Dec. 13 They auto took out the payemnt (we are not enrolled in auto payment) Around Mid-April they add it to our bill.
Account #: XXXXXXXX-X
Desired Settlement I want them to either allow us to work with payment on this mistake that they made, or to remove and take the loss. It is their mistake because it should have been taken out when I authorized payment not a month later. Home phone service was shut off because of this.
Business Response The Senior Customer Service Representative talked to the customer directly on April 10, 2014, to explain what happened with their bank and credit card processor. United further provided the customer with a written description of the issue and a listing of the unpaid balances on the account.
United prides itself on its dedicated local customer service and regrets the confusion and frustration this caused for the customer. We have been unsuccessful in contacting the customer but would be glad to discuss a payment arrangement with them.

This is based on BBB's database of businesses located in 45 counties in MiddleTennessee and Southern Kentucky. Businesses may engage in more than one type of business. The percent of time the business engages in a type of business is not accounted for. There is no known industry standard for the number of complaints a business can expect. The volume of business and number of transactions may have a bearing on the number of complaints received by BBB.
BBB records show the issues raised in the complaint have been resolved. Either customer confirmed the complaint has been resolved, or business confirmed the complaint has been resolved and customer did not respond to BBB correspondence informing customer that complaint will be considered resolved unless BBB hears otherwise from customer.

In some cases, business may have agreed to mediate or arbitrate the complaint but customer declined to participate in mediation/arbitration.
