Knology Complaint - Account Errors that nobody can seem to fix!!
RAPID CITY, SOUTH DAKOTA -- Due to a better deal, in August 2009 I switched cable providers from Knology to the other cable provider in the area. The switch seemed to go well. At the end of August I receive a statement stateing that I was to receive a refund of $10.37. I patiently watched my mail box. When the Knology letter did arrive, which was in October, it wasn't a check but a bill for another months services. I immediately call Knology and explained to them the error and that I should be getting a refund not a bill. They agreed and told me they didn't know why I was sent a bill and said they would check into it and have someone call me back. Two weeks later I called them back to find out if any progress has been made. Nobody knew anything about was I was talking about and had to start over. After that I started collecting case numbers. After that phone call I expected everything to be cleared up. It wasn't. Fast forward to January 2010. I received a refund check for $10.37, which was the amount of a accidental over payment on our last bill, and a few days later a notice from a collection agency stating that I owed $781.49 for equipment that I had not returned to Knology. First off, the only equipment that I had was a standard cable modem which would cost around $50 to purchase, and second, I have the paper receipt that says I returned all equipment. I called Knology again and was told that my case was being sent to a different department and would be cleared up and I would receive a call when it was. Again, one week later after not receiveing a phone call from Knology, I called them and it was still unclear whether or not the errors had been corrected and once again I am left with a new case number and a promised call back. The only good thing I can say is that the customer service representatives have been very polite through this whole experience.
