Today I called to cancel my service and was treated appallingly
I was put through to a supervisor as I asked if there was a medical exception for a cancellation fee .. I am moving home as my dad had a stroke 4 weeks ago and only yesterday my mum was diagnosed with cancer (I added I could provide medical certification) they advised NO and asked if I was ready to pay my bill .. I was ulterly disgusted and asked why did I not get a final payout figure first .. as I thought this was normal standard practice and I asked why was I singled out to be asked if I’m ready to pay my bill .. I asked didn’t I have at least 7 days before I would need to pay it !!!
i spoke with Bupender (the floor manager of the cancellation department) This is the description he gave me
I asked several times if I could get a recording of the phone call and he promptly answered NO !! I was on the phone to this department for over an answer to only get constant bad service
After several attempts then of trying to get my final payment figure as I wanted to END my association with Optus I advised Bupender that I would be forwarding an email to the Optus complaints department and the obudsman .. Bupender then had the gaul to ask why I was requesting an exception. I advised him him that I would be taking this matter further and ended the call
I generally had a good service from OPTUS but after today .. I would never obtain another service from them !!!!
I really do apologise for the experience you've had @sonnybill.
These sorts of requests are assessed on a case by case basis.
I'm happy to go in and take a look. Can you send us a private message? I need your full name, DOB and account number.
On the call recording request - we don't give out call recordings. You can make a request to have the call listened to, but the recordings are for internal use only.
I was send a reply that someone would look into my account .. I have tried several times to click on the private message link and it gets me to sign into my account .. I can’t find anywhere to send a private message
please advise how I do this
