Incompetence is a compliment

About 6 months ago I downgraded my service and removed my landline. At the same time Verizon also apparently changed account numbers. I have sent payment in for the old final bill but Verizon lost it in their systems. When I called they found it and applied it to my current account. I checked and online it tells me I owe $122.65 for my old account. I have a $136.67 credit on the current account. I call and go online several times a month to try to straighten this out. I am promissed each time that this will be resolved. I get disconnected when being transferred a zillion times. I get the run-around. I get Verizon agents fighting with each other over what to do with my account.

When I attempted to send payment it was applied to the wrong account and when I hit the button online to pay for the past due it tells me that I don't owe anything! **bleep**? I literally have no way to pay this bill!!!! So now Verizon has sent this account to a collection agency. I am more than a little {word filter avoidance}.

I want Verizon to bring this bill back in-house, I want them to send me a letter guranteeing my credit has not been damaged, and I want them to give me some way to pay this bill!! As a bonus, I'd like everyone that has worked on my account and lied to me fired. I also think Verizon should credit me like $500 for my troubles for this entire ordeal or at least the $122.65 that is owed.

Is there any end to this?
