Banfield Pet Hospitol Faulty Billing Practices portland Oregon
Dec 5th my bank sent Banfield a check for $64, for my Wellness Plan bill. On Mar 5th Banfield returned the check sent to them on 5 Dec, for reasons unkown to me. In April I receive a call from their collections company stating that I had a check returned for nonsufficient funds. I contested this with them and the rep told me to call Banfield billing. I called them and they stated that my account was current with no over due payments. I called the collection company back asked them to get their facts straight with Banfield as my account was current. A month later the collection company calls and says I must pay the NSF charge as they had made the payment for me when my check didn't clear. After an intensive arguement, I paid the collections company for the $64 and their fee, an additional 29.95.
In Apr a check was returned that was made in January. In Aug another check is returned from Banfield for May. I made it a point to make my August payment in person and was informed that I had a NSF charge for the payment made in May. During this time time I was repeatedly assured by the local Banfield employess that my account was in good standing, in fact it was paid up through Jul. I cannot lay blame to the local employees as they can only see what their computer shows them. At no point during this entire period was my bank account ever low enough to cause an NSF charge, in fact my balance was in the thousands. The billing department cannot or will not explain why they sent the checks back. They point the finger at the company they use to cash incoming payments (collections company) and that company points the finger at them. Their bad billing practices border on fraudulent and have made me look for a new vet. After this contract is up, my pets will have a new vet.
