As I blogged previously, for three engineer visits to fix faults in broadband (FTTC) services BT had charged us a total of £39,744.00, when in fact no charges should have applied.
Naturally we disputed the charge (and withheld payment).
We finally have the response from BT, and admittedly this is just the first response, but this is it...
The response is that there was an error and BT should not have charged us, so a total of £397.44 has been graciously "waived" and will be credited.
Yes, BT are crediting £397.44 after over charging us £39,744.00
We'll try for a second dispute on this one I think - well done BT - up to the usual standard of dispute resolution there I see. We have had numerous cases where BT have agreed a dispute, and credited a different amount to that originally charged and disputes, but never before this magnitude of discrepancy. We have also had cases where BT have agreed a dispute but never actually credit us.
We disputed BT charging us £39,744.00 to fix three FTTC lines

An impressive discount ;) Have you had to explain to BT about decimal points yet?ReplyDelete
Oh no not the Sprint 0.002c/MB thing all over again... :-)Delete
You'd have thought you wouldn't need to explain elementary maths to them, but, well, looks like you do!Delete
I remember a similar experience when, on moving into a flat, we got a gas bill for two thousand quid, with a series of meter readings going back 5 years to zero.ReplyDelete
My partner found this quite alarming, but I'd much rather have a ridiculously wrong bill than a subtly wrong one. If the issuers of the bill persist, eventually you'll end up in court in front of a human who will take one look and go "no, that's ridiculous".
