Not sure if this is the right area or not but I'm sure it will be moved if necessary.

Was advised by a so called expert yesterday that Dodo, one of the cheaper telco's in Oz are a bunch of scammers because their call centers are overseas, they don't have their own retail shops (only online) and supply a lot of their items through supermarkets and other 3rd parties.

The reason for this tirade by "so called expert" is that they are blaming me for a mistake on Dodo's part where they took over $100 out of my bank account for three services which I told them I didn't want or need. Have lodged an official complaint with the telecommunications industry ombudsmen and put a stop on any further possible payments by my bank. Was inquiring about a totally different product which I did want.

Should get my money back as I'm not a nice person if a company does something like that to me.

This isn't really 419. Not sure it's even a scammer -- maybe just really poor business practice?

Thanks JMR. This company just has poor business practices plus employing people who can barely understand the language of the country they are dealing with. I was just grumbling out loud about them.

The "so called expert" who was telling me that Dodo were a bunch of scammers is well into the senior citizen generation and considers most modern things to be a scam Shocked

One bit of good news is that the money has come back into my bank account today jump_4_joy

British Telecom use an overseas call centre in India and you are better off hitting your head agains't a brick wall, complained about the last time.

Sort of answer i was getting from them, i asked can you pass the message on to higher authority, answer "I cant do that you have to pay your bill", as i have not been using BT for some time and they had not cancelled the contract, my new provider uses their own equipment and not BT's.

Sent a written complaint to the Managering Director, for Customer services, had a phone call at 19.00 the other night from a woman (wifes ears shot up), following up on my complaint, apologised, for me being given the wrong information, as above, agreed with everything i said and that the call centre needs to be retrained, passing this information to higher management.

I have my doubts with BT that any action will be taken. Sad

We had the same problem with a number of companies....so to get a native English speaker...I tell them I only speak Irish...and I am normally transferred. Once when I tried to cancel my mums phone after her death, they would not deal with me as they could only speak to the person who set up the acct. When I asked for their medium service they hung up. So I emailed a radio station about this company and he read my mail out on air....A hour later the phone company mailed me, then rang me, refunded a years phone rental bill and sent me a bunch of flowers for my grief...

^^^^^
I had the same series of nightmare experiences after my mom's death, but not so great a resolution. A bunch of barely legal magazine and mail order groups continued billing her even after she was moving into a nursing home and after death. I had to get a power of attorney to maven shut down her credit cards. I then had to threaten the thieves with legal action for recuring charges after death to get them reversed.

I was lucky that her Bank Manager was a school friend of mine and sorted that area out for me fairly easily...(She just needed a offical death cert to show in her records) but she got all DD...etc stopped even before the Death Cert was ready. She then set up a exector acct and transferred everything in to that.
