PETERSBURG, ILLINOIS -- I recently received a bill from MCI for long distance service. I called MCI Customer Service twice. I got different answers each time for why this happened. I do not have MCI as a carrier nor do I want them. After many, many phone calls I found that I have been slammed on both local service and long distance service. It took several calls and much time to get it straightened out.
To help me avoid having this happen again (and for others who have experienced being slammed, I would like the following:
I would like to find an address for a customer protection agency that will investigate the on-going slamming done by MCI.
At the very least I would like a response from your company regarding this incident. Thank you for your time.
MICHIGAN -- Background: I am a former MCI customer who quit the company two years ago. The company was unable to provide me with new service when I moved a mile away. I gave them three months notice and, on moving day, discovered they had not connected the line or tried to. I gave them some time to complete this but they failed and I have used AT&T since then.
Six weeks ago, I began receiving "Welcome to the Neighborhood" letters. I ignored the first, then called MCI customer service. I told the representative that I didn't want MCI service, hadn't asked for it, considered this fraud, and expected them to cease and desist. He promised -- from his perch in Manila, The Philippines -- to have a manager call me. That didn't happen.
Yesterday, I received a bill from MCI for $70 and change. I feel they owe me at least $70 for distress and lost time trying to deal with their broken promises, lies, and current slamming scam.
