CMR claims for wire repair

We have the same issues about the CMR claims as others. Our cable was accidentally cut when we did a yard work on July 13, 2015. It is all the same as other post about CMR claims. The wire was buried less than 2 inches. I reported the issue to Verizon immediately and a Verizon representative told me that Verizon will fix it and there will be free of charge for that. On the next day, a Verizon technician came and dropped a temporary line to restore the service. He told me that Verzion will drop a permanent wire and He also confirmed that there will be no charge for the repair. However, I received a bill from CMR claims department which charge us $ 323.20 for the repair on Aug 11 2015. Before this bill, no bill from verizon.

I tried to dispute the charge by calling verizon billing department for two weeks. One supervisor in billing department said they need confirmation that I have been told it is free. I suggest that they can confirm by the representative or the techinician. But the supervisor in billing department said they can not do that  because it is in another fiber solution department. Then I called technique support department, they said they can not provide the technician's name and phone number.

It is so annoying issues. I fell so disappointed that I got the bill even I was told twice by both verizon and techinician it was free of charge.
