Account closed mid October, but billed to 5th November! - give me my money back

Despite online chat and raising a support question and promises of a refund, I still don't have my refund.

 

Is it best to speak to the bank re the Direct Debit Guarantee?

Short answer - Yes.

Longer answer - there are problems with the new billing system (introduced 1st September) which means a lot of (all?) final bills are "stuck" in the system, and it may take some while for this to be fixed (it has already taken several months, and there's no visible signs of progress).

Thanks for the update, but that isn’t my problem. I’m entitled to a refund as promised and I won’t be waiting for months! Looks like I best ring the bank.

Hi

 

added [-Censored-] here to stop the forum detecting that I've posted this elsewhere

 

just a heads up to all the customers that read this

I was mis-sold a product from plusnet and when I spoke to the tech team to clarify that plusnets broadband would do what I required the tech lady seemed uneducated and asked me "what is a VPN". so I cancelled my broadband/telephone as it was unfit for my working from home and I wasn't prepared to gamble that it would work.

 

All seemed fine, I got an email to say that there was no charge as I was in the 14 day cooling off period. (10 days)

 

To my horror these last few weeks as I noticed that the direct debits that was supposed to have been cancelled were being taken out. 3 months in total. I quickly got online and cancelled my direct debit on my banking app then contacted PlusNet.

 

The call took nearly 2 hours to get through and I was told that their updated system had issues and they would send out to my address a Cheque for the services I did not receive. This deadline for the cheque was today and it never arrived.

To make things worse when I cancelled the Direct debit I got numerous TxTs and emails threatening me to restrict my services and have additional costs put onto my account as the direct debits had been cancelled.

 

So this was the last straw.

I have passed all the correspondences to the Ombudsman and also the research team at the BBC watchdog programme.

 

I have spent about 12 hours in phone calls over the last 3 months and they have gotten me no where Once the Ombudsman has dealt with this Company I will be seeking litigation

We are able to see your multiple posts - I have replied to one with our most recent updates and current position. 

I would respectfully as you to refrain from hijacking other posts as (also mentioned in my other reply) this makes it extremely difficult to track you replies and may result in us missing a key piece of information provided by yourself. It also makes our reply time longer as we must track your most recent reply and cross reference against your others to ensure we have the full picture. 

 

Kind Regards, 

MoR

@oscarpapa

Still no refund despite promising it was sent on 22nd November! Looks like the bank or the FO to sort.

Re: Account closed mid October, but billed to 5th November! - give me my money back

You have just emailed me say you're refunding me £6.26 by cheque! I don't pay you by cheque!!!

You actually owe half of Oct and November which totals £29.75.

 

If monies aren't credited to my account by 31st December, I will do a DD indemnity claim and also contact the Ombudsman. 

 

I can't believe the hassle and the time this is taking when you clearly closed my account mid October. There is no point you disputing the amount as you closed the account so you know what date to bill me to.

Unfortunately we can't send you the money back any other way, but I'm sorry to see that we've not refunded enough. I've worked out an additional refund now and updated you via your account with more detail.
