I have a late bill from Verizon.. It was not my fault but my banks for not allowing the transaction in the first place. However I have to figure out how to pay these people their money or they will shut down my service. Easy you'd think?? Wrong! I have auto pay, so when I try to make a one time payment that option is not available. Ok, so lets think... Maybe I will try and pay over the phone(getting charged $3.50)..... NO that option is not available either.. Why? It asks for my Verizon account number.. Let me mind you that I am staring at my account number on the Verizon website and I tried putting it in 3 times.. Every time I put it in the robot lady says to me that the account doesn't exist or that I must have entered it wrong. It then promptly hangs up on me.... I have exasperated all other avenues of this "easy" ways to pay. I call Verizon and wait on a very long and tedious process of them asking me questions all while I just want billing.. I talk then to a nice lady who I think I can finally get some answers from. .WRONG. I don't think she even understands my problem at all.. She says well once your bill is late that I cannot make a one time payment. OK so wait the automated robot lady called me while I was at work today explaining that that's exactly how I go about paying my bill.. So who is right? Who wants my money? I have a small conversation with this Verizon representative and all she can bother to is PUSH PRODUCT down my poor throat.. Saying that my wires need to be updated or that I can buy insurance for my TV in a event that they break, or even that I want a RED Box subscription, not once trying to fix the problem that I am having.. I ask her for my account information because the account that I have here for some reason is not the right one to pay over the phone. She gives me a account number that doesn't even fit the 14-18 character limit that the robot lady tells me I need. I plug in the mysterious number only to be rejected again... To make a long story short.. I am not going to call them back until I figure out a way to bypass all the robot inquiries and actually speak to someone who can take my payment directly. I am seriously NOT happy about how I have been treated and mainly mistreated. FIX IT!

I tried following your directions in order to get some help.. I truly dont understand what you want me to do. I feel like your support is the WORST I have ever encountered.. Half the messages are automated and the other half there are too many directions in there to even get started. I know your doing your best but theres too many issues. The automated support SUCKS and when I try and use a online agent they are never available.. I just had to pay my bill again using the phone because I cannot seem to get my accounts to release the money or my account is always locked. I am at wits end here with your online payment system.
