Verizon claims I did not return equipment

This has been going on for over a year. I had stopped service in August of 2014. Went to return my equipment but the letter that accompanied the return box stated I had 6 boxes to return., I have 4 TV's and only 4 boxes. And my bill always has me paying for 4 boxes not 6. I had an issue with a defective box early in my service and they sent me a replacement. I sent the defective box back in 2012. Tracking number I finally found after going through tons of paperwork and bills UPS GROUND {edited for privacy}. (not my fault that UPS does not track after 90 days) I had an issue with my HD signal so I had a tech come out to fix the signal. While he was here he switched out my DVR box for a newer version. I know they have record of the tech doing the house call but no record of the DVR box switch. I guess they never updated their records so now according to Verizon I have 6 boxes. So if it was never updated that I received a new DVR box, wouldn't they have received a DVR box from me that they did not have on record ??????? I visited the local Verizon store where I originally brought my equipment back and the flunky staffer said it was taken care of until I got a bill for $1,100.00 and spoke to a manager (convenient they don't have access to whatever information that I needed to get from him). I told him I returned the equipment here and you would think they would have the receipt from my transaction (from a month prior) but they did not. The manager said he would credit the account in 1-3 billing cycles. Fast forward a year later. Calls from credit collection agencies and no help from Verizon. I have perfect credit and they better not screw that up for me because they can't keep track of their own inventory. Any suggestions on what to do???????
