Time Warner Cable - Time Warner Has No Shame
internet - Complaint
SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS -- Time Warner has no shame. My beloved cousin died in early November, and I have been trying to close out her account since then. She had a bundle package with internet, television, and a landline home phone. We cancelled some of the service shortly after my cousin's death. We also returned two converters at this time (I have a receipt for these returns). We chose to retain the cable coverage till the 15th of January. I called Time Warner on the 16th to cancel the remainder of the service. They stated they couldn't cancel the service till the modem was returned. I returned the modem to one of their stores on the 19th of January. I asked the person receiving the equipment if this was all I needed to cancel the account, and he said yes. I asked if I would be receiving a credit on the account and he said yes. On the 10th of February, I received a bill for $81.36 still showing that the modem was not returned. My account has a $98.07 credit without the modem and card. I was told that the account did show that the modem was returned and that it "just had not been put into the system" and that it now had and that a credit would be issued shortly. They further stated that nothing was owed on the bill. On March 1st, I received a bill from a credit collection agency for the $81.36; I had received no other notification between the 10th of February and this notice. I immediately called Time Warner and was assigned a case number. The representative again stated that it was clear I had returned the modem, but that they would need to verify that it was in their facility. I don't know what that has to do with anything since they noted that the modem had been returned. He stated that I would receive a call back by the 5th of March letting me know what the status was. I did not receive a call yesterday so in the afternoon I again called customer service. Again I was told that it was clear that I had returned the modem. This representative stated that the previous representative should not have told me I would receive a call by Tuesday because it would take up to 8 business days to research the situation. I asked to speak to a Supervisor and was placed on hold for a long period of time. When the representative came back on the line, she stated there was a backlog of calls (not surprising after looking at all the complaints) for supervisors and someone would give me a call back within 24 hours. In one hour it will be 24 hours and not surprisingly I have not received a call.
