3 Monthis in a Row! Verizon Bug adding Overage Charges to Phone Bill
Enthusiast - Level 2

3 months ago, I noticed an overage charge of around $40 on my bill due to me going over my World Plan minutes apparently. That seemed odd to me and I checked online and I had in fact not done so. I called in to Verizon and after review, the tech admitted that it appears that this was due to a bug in the system and gave me a credit. I asked why this occurred and she stated that it was simply a bug and to not worry, that it won't happen again.

Come last month...and same scenerio. $36 this time. I call in and the first tech tells me they will transfer me to troubleshooting, but then the line just disconnects. I call in again and this billing tech simply says that it was a bug and gives me another credit. She then proceeds to begin to try and sell me faster internet speed and Verizon's latest router. I ask why this is occuring and that I was told last month that it wouldn't happen again, and she transfers me to Tech Support. When Tech Support picks up, they say it is a billing issue and transfer me back. The tech in the billing department picks up, says "Hello? Hello?" twice quickly and hangs up.

This month...guess what? The same charges but for $22.
Ridiculous that these charges are being added and if I didn't look it over, it would not have been fixed. The customer support on top of it is even more ridiculous.
