$400 Visa Scam

 I switched from comcast to verizon because I was offered a $400 gift card. Then they told me the estimated installation bill would be $277.  The bill came in and was $622. So I got online and ask the agent if I could split up the bill. Which by the way was paid in three installments of $207 within three weeks. Now when im close to my 60 days to start the process of the visa card I ask a few questions and I am told three different stories by they same agent FLO that I do not qualify because of the arrangements. Well if you didnt drastastically under estimate the bill that wouldnt have been an issue.  So not only was my first bill outrageous but now no gift card. from what I was reading online these seems to happen alot and seems to be a scam verizon is running to avoid sending the VISA. Ive decided to process a claim with the BBB because I have all my paperwork and screen shots of conversations and I am not being taken advantage of. I give my residental and under my account I have four phone with verzion wireless. If I would have known I would have stayed with Comcast and not switched. If I am not valuable enough of a customer then I will take all my business to another provider there are plenty out there.
