Visa Gift Card Scam
Enthusiast - Level 1

I signed up for a triple play with fios because of the $300 visa gift card promotion.  I met all the guidelines of the fine print which was a 2 years contract and no past due balances on my account for the first 2 months.  I never received my $300 gift card.  When I called customer service they told me that know gift card was listed on my account and I was not eligible for the $300 gift card.  To "solve" the issue they added a discount on my Fios account and my Wireless account since I have both.  This was a **bleep** solution to offer me a discount I was already eligible for!!!!!  All my verizon accounts and my families accounts will be terminated.  On a high note I received this notice about a community Fios event at my apartment complex.  Im glad I will be able to inform all my neighbors at this event of how horrible the customer service is and the scam promotions they run! imageimage
