Trying to resolve a billing dispute

My bill arrived with a charge for a movie we did not order. I tried the following:

Used the website to dispute the charge.

Nothing happens when you click the button. (Note, I am developer and I know how websites work).

Spent 30+ minutes in a chat, basically to be told, can't remove it and offered a free month of Youtube TV as a compensation. Sent a revised bill showing a $50 charge for Youtube TV. When questioned, was told the first month was a trial, I could cancel after the trial period.

Went to the went site to try the "Call me" option.

Told option was not available.

Sent a detail message via Facebook messenger.

After an hour, still no reply nor acknowledgement of the message.

Just tried voice number, told, sorry can't do that now, try tomorrow.

So far, I've spent close to an hour trying to get a disputed charge removed.

I suspect this is deliberate to make people give up. Verizon is pricey, every time I call, it is generally an hour, and not very helpful.

Very disappointed...
