On August 23rd, we received an email from Verizon that said that we had a made a recent change in our service and they wanted to give us helpful information about our next bill. We had not made any changes to our service so my husband called Verizon to get more information. They said that we had ordered the Playboy channel in the previous month from our setbox and we would have been sent an email confirming the order. We never ordered that channel and did not receive any emails confirming the order. We set a password on the setbox to prevent unauthorized purchases and don't even know it because we did not need to know it. My husband asked them to cancel the channel and please credit our account. The customer service rep cancelled the channel but refused to credit our account. They said that they can't credit our account because it was supposedly ordered through our setbox. He emphasized that we did not even know the password to make changes through our setbox and we did not receive an email confirming the order. The customer service rep would not do anything so my husband asked to speak to the supervisor. He also refused to do anything so my husband said that we would be cancelling our service and asked that our service is shut off at the next billing cycle. They only told us that it had been order last month on the setbox but did not give us a date.
Any help in geting this resolved would be greatly appreciated.
