Being told I haven't returned equipment, then charged over $400 - I RETURNED IT SEVERAL WEEKS AGO!!!

My account was cancelled on December 8 and on December 9, I was sent a "kit" that included a return box and some labels. I needed to return the DVR box, but I had purchased the modem/router so I was supposed to keep that one. Because I use UPS dropoff at work, I couldn't use the humongous box they sent me so I used a smaller box as well as their label, and carefully wrapped the DVR in bubble wrap. When I first received an email of unreturned equipment, I called Verizon and was told it was an error and that the person would update my account of the return. I got an email again and ignored it, assuming the account just hadn't been updated yet. The third email says I was charged over $400 for the cost of equipment I HAD ALREADY RETURNED weeks prior. Furious, I called Verizon and was told by the rep that she saw that I returned the DVR but they were still waiting on the return of the modem/router (she even gave me the date they received the DVR). I told her I bought the modem/router and obviously didn't have to return it... and as that conversation continued, poof! no more record of returned DVR; she said it was an error. She said she did see a return but it wasn't for the DVR... but wouldn't tell me what it was for since the DVR is all I needed to return. So I asked her about the label they sent me but she said they couldn't look up the tracking info of the label that they themselves sent to me. Frustrated, I asked for a supervisor and after waiting for a while, I was told one wasn't available.. so she said she took down my information and would have a supervisor call me back. I was also given a ticket number... fast forward to now; I think we're going on three weeks and I am yet to hear back from anyone, email or otherwise. I have no idea of the status of this issue. Nice people but just terrible, terrible service.. I don't know what's going on but I KNOW I returned it (I have no reason to keep it and I'm one of those silly people who walk back into a store because I forgot to pay for a pack of gum). I mean, what's this deal about not being able to look up a tracking number of a label THEY sent to ME??! So frustrating... that's a LOT of money.
