Early Termination Fee not applicable and report dishonest and incompetent billing department agents

Hi there,

 

I am a former customer for xfinity internet at the College Park, MD area. I entered the service through phone, and was told that I would NOT be charged with any Early termination fee because of the university area. At the time I disconnected, I was again promised that I won't be charge ETF. However, 4 months ago, after I disconnected the service for 6 months, I got a paper statement stating that I owe Comcast $183. I contacted Comcast immediately and got reaffirmed that I was good for no liabilities.

 

However, again, this time even worse, guess what? Recently, I found this debt reflected on my credit report and this goes to the collection agent. SURPRISE!!! Then, I contacted the "helpful" customer service again - the billing department and talked with 3 representatives. Half of them are incompetent and dishonest. Keep telling me lies and being very rude. I tried my best to reach out a higher level personal from Comcast but I failed.

 

While the only really helpful one told me the truth. From their record, I didn't even agree to the contract and there wasn't any signs of agreement to the contract. Therefore, I should not be charged the ETF fee. He said that my case was solved and the ETF will be removed. However, I don't remember how many "however"s I have so far, after several days, the $183 ETF still sit on my account. Now, I am writing this down here and hopefully someone really having the authority can solve the issue. 

 

Best,

A former Xfinity customer
