Can't Cancel Verizon Service

I have been a loyal customer to Verizon for 10 years. Within those 10 years I have had trouble with my home phone, including a technician coming out to review the landline wiring and not fixing the issue. Recently, I have tried calling customer service 4 times and also tried the chat option at least twice to cancel home phone service (~$30/ mo). The first two times the rep mentioned that they would send a confirmation letter to my address on file and not to continue to make payments but, blamed the "previous" mistake on the first rep. The third time they left me on hold for ~2hrs. The fourth time the agent claimed to have canceled the service but when I called back to verify the chat log mentioned that the call was disconnected and, in fact, the plan was still active. Now they are saying the service is "disconnected" due to non payment of $59 which I was under the impression the first time that my account was being disconnected.
