Off Shore Customer Support center billing questions
Enthusiast - Level 2

Dear Verizon,

Your offshore customer support center sucks. I don't understand why you hire people who can't freaking understand english.

I called in with a double billing issue I found on my latest bill. I was routed to your offshore customer support. I explained my problem & they said they would take care of it. I was put on hold for over 15 minutes. When the rep came back, she said everything was completed.

After some time I get an email saying my service order has been submited & further status will be provide. I was like **bleep** is this all about. I look into my verizon account & sure enough; there was a new service order on my account.

Instead of taking care of the double billing problem; the freaking offshore rep deactivated my service & set me up with a new one. And the worst part the original double billing issue was not even taken care off.

So I called customer support back. This time I finally got someone in the US. After spending over an hour. We worked together for over 30 minutes to undo all the **bleep** the offshore rep had done to my account. The new rep was also able to fix the double billing issue.

Today I went to watch Tyrant TV show, which I have recoded on my DVR. And to my disbelife, it wasn't there. I went to tune to FXHD channel and sure enough there was a screen telling me I'm not authorized to use the channle.

I called tech support & they told me my package does not incude FXHD. I told them how could that be because when I login to my Verizon account & check my package details; it clearly states I have FXHD and this is something I've had for over 20 months as part of my package.

So they said I would need to speak with customer support & they would transfer me. And guess what when they transfered me, I get routed to offshore. So I called back several time and I keep getting freaking offshore support.

I refuse to speak to offshore support as they do not understand English. I don't need to **bleep** waste hours of my time dealing with this **bleep**.

Does anyone know how I can reach a customer support rep that is located in the United States that speaks & understands English?

I need to figure out what the **bleep** is going on with my account so I can watch my shows.

So many hours of my life wasted dealing with this crap which I will never get back.

Someone please help.
