Very Disappointed in verizon, this seems fradulant

We have recently moved to another house.  When we moved we changed services and went from 4 set top boxs just to one and downgraded our plan.  At the time of the new order the representative stated he would send boxes out to return our old equipment.  After a week we had not received the boxes I called back and the represenstative said that order was never completed and would be sending out new boxes for return.  Well after another week we still have not received the boxes and got our bill today and they have charged us for the set boxes that have not been returned even though they have not been in use.  I called to dispute the charges and the 'supervisor" said the best he could do was give us 50% off the charges for the non returned set top boxes dispite it being their error for us not receiving the boxes.  This just seems crazy that they are charging customers for set top boxes that have not been in use and have not been returned because they can not get the return boxes sent out correctly.  So this is the customers fault??............Why would they have any incentive to send out boxes to customers for return when they can just blame it on "human error" and tell customers they don't know why they wer enot sent out but that you the customer will be at least 50% responsible for the monthly charges of these unused boxes.  This just really blow my mind.  The supervisor Alexander could not give me any explaination for why the boxes were not sent out except for "human error".  He told me that the confirmation number for my first request for return boxes was "excluded" from the note so he could not give me a confirmation number.  BOTTOM LINE, verizon is holding me the customer responsible for the charges of set top boxes that have been sitting unused waiting to be returned because verizon has failed to send return boxes for almost 3 weeks.  I really am confused on how this is legal.   Will be contacting the BBB and further authorties.
