at&t took advantage of my disabled Dad! On 02/04/2014 my dad got a virus on his computer. [continued below]....
To resolve the problem, I would appreciate if at&t made formal apology, refund my dad the $120.00. Reimburse him $429.00 for a new computer. Six months free internet and phone for the extremely unprofessional, unethical customer services. As well as violating their own policy. (stated at the top of this page) I look forward to a resolution to my problem in the meantime I have contacted at&t customer care via email on 02/06/14. at&t facebook page and at&t community forums all on 02/06/14 and have yet to hear back from at&t. I am shocked that at&t think that they can treat their customers this way and have no consequences. I have made this my top priority and will not let this go without my dad getting some compensation and for myself I would like an apology.
Below is a record of the calls between AT&T and I.
1:42 p.m. 02/04/2014 First call to AT&T re: the virus issue my dad was having.
1:58 p.m. 02/04 Wrong dept. transferred. Placed on hold for 20 mins. Until I hung up.
2:25 p.m. 02/04 Placed on hold for 13 mins. Spoke with customer service who tried to get me to purchase the $120.00 package plan. After declining I asked to speak to a supervisor. I was placed on hold for 47 mins. Finally a supervisor came on the line only to inform me that my dad was not covered with the virus protection plan I was transferred over to tech dept. After explaining to Sheele (tech dept) the situation. She assured me that this matter would be taken care of as she was going directly to the supervisor herself. Pete Cortez. with Customer Service. Sheele also told me that the supervisor I had previously spoke with misinformed me by stating my dad was not covered with the virus protection plan. He was covered.
10:15 a.m. 02/05 No solution stated Pete Cortez will be calling me
11:38 a.m. 02/05 Told Pete Cortez would call me back.
1:00 p.m. 02/05 Wrong department/transferred on hold for 9 mins. Spoke with a woman in customer service who said she was going to transfer me. Hold for 20 mins and the hung up on AGAIN!
2:42 p.m. 02/05 Pete Cortez from the Houston dept. called me and told me that he would call me back in one hour. With a solution and a refund of the $120.00. Along with compensation for our troubles.
3:12 p.m. 02/05 Placed on hold for 9 mins. Disconnected.
4:21 p.m. 02/05 Placed on hold for 17 mins. Then disconnected.
9:44 a.m. 02/06 Placed on hold then disconnected after 2mins.
9:52 a.m. 02/06 Placed on hold for 14 mins. While being transferred then disconnected.
1:11 p.m. 02/06 When I spoke this time with the rep. I stated my attorney was on the line. He verified and yet I was placed on hold for 1.35 mins and never picked up. I eventually hung up. Knowing my attorney was on the line this is how AT&T customer services handled it.
2:05 p.m. 02/06 My mom and I called three way. Spoke with a nice woman in customer service who transferred us over to a different dept. who said she would cancel the service of $120.00 but that she would charge an early termination fee of $110.00 my mom said no let me talk to your supervisor. On hold for 20 mins. the supervisor stated she would refund $110.00 but would charge my dad $15.00 for the time the tech took to try and remove is virus. (WHEN THEY ONLY ERASED THE WHOLE COMPUTER DRIVE EXCEPT THE VIRUS) My mom told them that if that were the case she would cancel all the services including cell phone services. That is when I hung up and decided that posting this and reporting AT&T to the BBB would be the best way to resolve this
