We had to have a repair done to our FiOS line and were very happy with the service. We assumed that Verizon was going to bill us directly. Instead, the only notice we got was from CMR Claims Department. We tried to pay THAT DAY in the middle of the day when they were open. We could not get a hold of ANYONE in their office. We kept getting transferred to random people when we did talk to someone. Then I finally end up in the payment department and they can only take a check. I am NOT going to give my account information to a third-party claims department that doesn't even own the line that was fixed. And their system will not allow you to give a debit\credit card, only check. You would think with as big as Verizon is, they would ether be able to do their own claims department (since they can send the service guy out) or get a better claims agent to accept payments in different forms. After looking at the BBB (and other reviews and searches online) for CMR, I am not at all comfortable giving them our banking information. We really do want to pay the bill, but I will only submit a payment to Verizon. So Verizon needs to figure out a solution and let us know what we need to do from here. Also, we are not the only people who have had these issues so I know something can be done about it.
