Trade in frustration

Upon switching to verizon, I traded in my old phone (white samsung galaxy s10+). I packaged and mailed the device myself, expecting an $800 credit.

My credit was adjusted to $15, they said that "Device was different than expected". Saying it was a bronze Galaxy Tab. I have never owned a bronze galaxy tab.

I am 100% sure of the phone I had and sent in. My husband had the same phone in black. We traded his in, and it processed properly. I am tech savvy, I know the model of the phone I had for almost 2 years. I spent a long time researching and selecting it, I KNOW WHAT PHONE I HAD/MAILED IN.

I used online chat to try to resolve the issue. That rep told me they were able to see that 2 galaxy s10 were traded in, and it must have been an entry error, but they were a sales rep and unable to fix it.

I tried to use the support request function, got the run around being traded from rep to rep, telling them the exact same info, only to be told "Device was different than expected, bronze galaxy tab).

I assume by now the devices are long gone, and I am left at the mercy of whatever someone put in the computer wrong, with no recourse to prove my point. This is a huge bummer, as I switched my entire family over to verizon, buying new phones for all, counting on this trade in credit.
