Billing Issue re: closed account

I recently moved my number to another service, thus terminating my account with Verizon.  My account with Verizon was a pay-as-you-go one, and I had money left on the account at the time that I moved my service to a new carrier.  I assumed that Verizon would pay this money back toward the credit card I had set up to bill, but they have not done so.  This is money that was never used for any service, so if Verizon just keeps it, then does is in effect constitute theft.  

Is there any way I can recover this money from Verizon?  I have tried all of the Verizon phone numbers but there is no way to get past the request for a Verizon account number - since my phone number is technically no longer with Verizon, I get automatically disconnected before I can speak to a customer service representative.

Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide.
