I moved from Plusnet to BT broadband in September now 2 months after leaving I've received a second final bill for 0.56p. I received my first final bill on October 12th so rang Plusnet to get the account closed.
On the call the person I spoke to told me they had closed my account and no further payment was required so I’m annoyed as to why I’ve been sent another bill for 0.56p which if unpaid will be sent to a Debt Collection Agency
Whilst closing my account I received 5 emails is this normal when closing an account at Plusnet?

I'm currently overseas and don't want to make an expensive call to Plusnet to find out its another problem and I don’t have to pay the 0.56p. I’ve tried to find other ways to contact them but it seems they have no other customer service channels so this is my last hope as I can no longer log into my account because its been deleted
Fixed! Go to the fix.
Re: Final Bill Payment
The problem is that even if you are told that there is nothing to pay, can you trust Plusnet not to send the bill to a debt collection agency and destroy your credit record? After this display of incompetence I certainly wouldn't.
Find a way to pay the 56p and make sure that they give you a receipt and a new final invoice showing that the account is clear. This could be a good starting point as after 8 weeks you can take it to arbitration if necessary. https://www.plus.net/help/legal/complaints-code-of-practice/

Re: Final Bill Payment
Thank you Ben for your quick response and support. It feels like you get far a better customer experience on the Plusnet community rather than trying to get through to customer service
