Got a bill for them several years back when we had a LAN line and was going through MCI. Called them up and told them we had no account with them and they said agreed and assured it would be taken care of.
Thought nothing of it and threw the bill away. Following month I received another bill from the same company that was now three hun. This was last month's bill and this month's bill added together with a nice late fee. Again I called them and again they told me it was all good, only this time I filed the bill away.
Had a feeling this wasn't over. Well, to shorten this up a bit, I continued getting bills that finally reached five hun, and a disconnect notice. This time they no longer the nice on the phone and told me to pay or get the disconnect, and I was like, " bring it". I didn't have service with them so what they going to do, right?
Called them again the following month when I got another bill. (Yep, still had my phone, shocker) Bill still five and I still not paying. It could have been five cents and I still wouldn't pay. As an exboyfriend once said, "It's the principle of it." They had me on the phone for 6 hours, four-point-five of it on hold, but it was cool.
I just put on my headset and played Fallout 3. Dude, always seemed surprised when he get back on and I was there lols. Anyway, had conference call with them and MCI, where they repeatedly call the man with MCI a liar. He finally got fed up and hung up.
Then Vertec started calling me a liar about the disconnect notice. I told him I was calling a lawyer, and then he was so nice. He was lovey dovey. I told him too late.
Called MCI and they had my back. Happened to ring the same dude they had ticked off, so he was more than helpful. Sent me all the phone records with MCI since signing on, including all the paper work for when we signed on a whole year earlier. Called lawyer who told me to call Attorney General.
They jumped on it and the whole thing was settled without me paying one-red-cent. You hear from these crooks, take my advice. Don't pay them anything. I reading so many comments here of peeps paying because it wasn't that much or wateve.
Dude, don't. Apparently that what keeps them going. I never paid them and do you either.
Keep all the records (oh, and record the calls, did that too) and get ahold of your Att Gen. Peace
