How Vonage Ruined My Life
PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA -- Vonage ruined my life, I am a disabled person in need of a good working telephone service for life sustaining support. Vonage called my home, and convinced me that I would save money. I had Comcast VoIP that worked perfectly before the big switch. They are manipulating from the very beginning, first they charged my credit card (Beware of any service who charges because the don't do paper billing)a activation fee which was never disclosed, and other fees I was not aware of. Then they sent a email saying welcome, here is your "virtual" phone no. till your home no. is transferred, and here are the Terms Of Service you are bound to. Since when does somebody agree to something then given the terms afterwards, and say your bound to them. I'm not going to repeat what you all can read about their lousy service, what I am going to do is advise you that they will do whatever it takes to get your money, all before you realize it. They are scam artists, and what most people don't know is they are not governed by the FCC except for two things, 1. Your Local Number Portability, and 2. Providing 911 service. Now my line never worked properly, so how could I call for emergency service if it doesn't work. Also, they offer a 30 day guarantee which they will do whatever it takes to extend you beyond that period with transfer delays, delays in troubleshooting their service, blame your ISP and play the blame game with your original provider, anything. How do I know this, well I maybe a disabled person, but I have a degree in Electrical Engineering (I also have a FCC License in Amateur Radio), I am someone they did not fool. I will be filing a lawsuit against Vonage, they caused me, and my family both physical, and mental abuse over a 5 week period with their promises to fix their lousy service and their lousy third party carriers. They fail to disclose many things, even when I cancelled the service, they think its perfectly acceptable to steal your money by telling it's a recovery fee for their phone adapter when you want to send it back, and a termination fee for subscribing to a non working line. I have filed complaints with the FCC, FTC, New Jersey BBB, and plenty more to come, even if it takes me to testify before a Senate, or Congressional Committee to stop these scrupulous thieves. Vonage is deceptive, and couldn't care less who you are, it's all based on deception. My only purpose now is to for warn you people are even thinking of switching to Vonage, just get smart and search the internet about these complaints, they are all the internet. Maybe the CEO Mr. Jeffrey Citron needs to be taken to court again, just like when he was ordered to pay back millions for Exchange and Internet Fraud. You change change the spots on a leopard. I stopped them from further charging my credit card, I closed the account, filed a dispute, all for services not rendered, and I will get it back, every penny plus for ruining 5 weeks of my and my families life, rest assured Vonage, what comes around goes around.
