Verizon and there unfair practices
Day3
Newbie

I can't believe that Verizon has reported my final bill to the credit agencies. First, I never received a final bill from them and I definitely never got a collection notice. I finally took it upon myself to call and thats when I discovered that  the bill was in collections. Then I found out it was reported to the credit bureaus! For what It had been two billing cycles and I realized something must be wrong. I cancelled my service because it was poor equipment and pricing issues. I had a DVR box that was replaced 4 times and still never worked properly. I was charged for a DVR that was broken  and that wasn't on the account. I was told that it would be adjusted once received and it never was. I never received any credits for the poor quality of equipment and service. However, the moment I decide to leave FIOS due to the high cost and bad service they want to hold my credit hostage! I should have filed complaints with the FCC in regards to my billing long before it got to this point. The Customer Service reps could care less so I spent countless hours for nothing. The Bill was immediately paid in full and they still wont remove the blemish from my report. I have already advised my friends and relatives to ignore purchasing FIOS services. I may not be able to get this resolved but I am in Education and I will spread the word to lots of people! Tired of Big Corporations with these bullying tactics.
