Verizon DSL; the haunting scam.

In the summer of 2010, after approximately 8 months of the worst DSL speeds on planet earth, and 5 to 6 technical service phone calls and complaints on the issue, Verizon terminated my service after the technician who was sent told me that I should have never been signed up for service in the first place. I was out of the proper range, and after hooking a device up to the wall and calling his supervisor a few times, he concluded that they should have told me up front that I shouldn't be signing up for service. After speaking with Verizon, I confirmed that THEY were the ones canceling service, and I was NOT to have any sort of cancellation fee. I even gave 2 follow up calls over the next month to make absolutely sure that everything was documented correctly, and I was to have NO cancellation fee. I was assured twice. Well 6 months later, what shows up in the mail? A debt collection fee for $154! It was a very merry Christmas, indeed. I disputed, and Verizon played dumb. Then in the spring, another letter from another debt collection company. Now irritated, I called Verizon, and they said to call the debt company, and back and forth it went. The blame game went back and forth between companies 3 or 4 times before I started to snap. My final call was to Verizon, and after sitting on hold waiting for a supervisor for 43 minutes (my phone was logging time), I had a "supervisor" (who barely spoke English) tell me that I was making everything up because there were no technical help call logs from my complains, and that they had never dispatched a technician. After an issuance of a choice word or two and the declaration of them being the thieves that they are, I hung up on the outsourced individual and fumed for weeks. I have since disputed 2 more debt collection attempts. What set this off is that I am about to dispute my 3rd, thanks to an early morning debt collection call on a Sunday (December 2012)... Merry Christmas again, from the thieves guild that is Verizon!

Report them to your state utility regulators and the FCC. Also inform the Better Business Bureau since things like DSL and FIOS are optional additional fee services.

I would not only push to get the cancellation fee taken off I see about getting credit for documented times out of service for the entire month and then some.

Did they actually put subscriber out of range in the trouble/ your account history? If it's any consulation half the DSL customers in range shouldn't have gotten dsl either because Verizon copper plant was/is rarely upto to spec.

Good Luck
