I'm trying to find a customer complaint/satisfaction contact to help me with my account. Does anything exist, or is the BBB my only option? If that is the only option, which BBB is the correct one. Every one I've pulled up so far says it's handled by another BBB, but doesn't specify which one.
I've been a loyal Verizon customer for decades and just had the most disappoint day talking to a couple of CSRs and a CSR "manager". My only request today was to keep my bill from going from an all-in total of $197 to $251 due to my contract expiring (about $189 @ Cox). Although the CSRs tried, they've told me there is nothing they can do. I asked the second CSR to forward me to a manager because I just can't swallow an increase like that. After pushing back alot and all of the managers supposedly in a meeting or helping other customers, I was finally given to "Ken" (her manager).
Unfortunately, the interaction with Ken was not only useless, but insulting. He kept trying to convince me everything was as it should be because of the exiring contract (hence, losing the discounts). I told him I understood that, but I needed to keep the price as it is. I asked who could help me with that and keep me as a customer. His reply was a disappointing, "No one can help you with that".
I finally end up asking for his manager. His incredulous reply? "What's the point?" I was truly flabergasted. I replied, "Because I asked?" Not surprisingly, the phone then mysteriously disconnected. (Right...)
Obviously, something is wrong. I'm in sales. If I had used either of those statements, I'd be given the opportunity to look for a new job.
So, now I have two complaints - the unrealistic price increase and the unprofessionalism of a supposed manager. Who can I reach out to in order to discuss this?
