Verizon has zero customer service. They are trying to steal from me.

Hello, I have a been a Verizon customer for more than 11 years. I've never had a problem with Verizon in those 11 years up until November 2021 when I started having issues on multiple overcharges on my account. To summarize, Verizon has not been accountable for things they promised. I have been lied to by their customer service staff and NEVER RECEIVE FOLLOW-UP FROM MANAGEMENT. 

I'm a San Diego, CA resident that traveled to Mexico City for vacation in November 2021. When in Mexico, I was having issues with my data, so I called Verizon to find a temporary solution to receive 4G LTE data speeds. They recommended that I add a temporary international plan for $100 and to cancel the international plan as soon as I came back from Mexico. I did that. I called Verizon immediately after my return from Mexico in mid-November. The representative on the phone confirmed I cancelled the service. 

Since then, I have received a $100 international plan charge on my account every month since November 2021. I have spent countless hours on the phone every month requesting that this plan be removed immediately from my account. Every time I call, the representative confirms cancellation and requests a credit. I'm now in MONTH 4 OF BEING OVERCHARGED. The several last calls to Verizon Customer Service were taken by a supervisor. The supervisor is Brad (Employee ID 2235246). He promised that I would be received credit for the overcharge and that Verizon would be giving me a convenience credit. That was obviously a lie because I never received the credit even after Brad promised I would see it on my account 3 days after our call. I'm not sure if he was lying or what happened, but when I called Verizon 1.5 weeks later and spoke to Michael (employee ID 113574), he mentioned the call with Brad was never documented in my account. Michael also mentioned he didn't see a pending credit. HOW RIDICULOUS IS THAT? I have a customer service supervisor lying to me and not being accountable.  This has been going on for 4 months. I've spent hours on the phone with Verizon. I have a very high demanding job, and the last thing that I want to do is spend my leisure time correcting a problem for Verizon. 

What I'm learning with Verizon Customer Service is that there is no accountability, quality control, or client-centric approach. They have even threated to send me to collections for a past due bill that I was not responsible for. I have emails from Verizon letting me know that. At this point, I don't know what I should do. I still have a $100 international plan charge on my account and absolutely do not trust Verizon reps. 

I am requesting that a supervisor from Verizon contact me ASAP and have a resolution for my account. I want my line credited money that I do not owe. I also want a convenience credit in the next 4 billing cycles for the past 4 months that I've been dealing with this. The convenience credit should be $117.99 for my plan every month for the next 4 months. Thanks.
