Cox Communications, accepted my order, billed me a higher rate, then lied about why they reneged San Diego California

*UPDATE Employee: Re: Billing Issues

Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

Cox sent me an offer for internet services, which I accepted and they sent me a confirmation email with the price of $29.99 for 12 months. They billed me much higher. When I called to complain, they variously said the offer was only good if all offered services were ordered (not true), that it was only good for 3 months (not true), or that I was a current customer and not eligible.

I had previously requested service but had no modem so never had activated service and was not a customer, which they knew. Because they did not notify me that they were reneging on the price they had confirmed to me, they practiced a "bait and switch". Despite numerous calls and emails, their terrible customer service never admitted nor corrected this despicable practice.
