MCI Worldcom Wireless Show me the Bill, I'll show you the money! ripoff business from hell Internet

I signed a one year contract with MCI in May 1999. I received the first bill and paid promptly but after that no more bills came. i called in regularly requesting statements but they always had a problem with their computers being shut down or their network being upgraded.

i paid what they stated i owed over phone calls until one day they stated that my balance was over $3000. It turned out that they were billing me based on a 100 minute plan instead of the 500 minute plan and i requested that this error be adjusted. However my friend went and paid $3200 without us ever receiving an itemized statement and requested the service be terminated on the one year anniversary - May 18, 2000.

We paid what they stated was the full amount owed and then late last year they begin sending me bills for over $1000 for service and a beeper which i never received and they even admitted was never activated. I requested an itemized statement and they agreed to send it but that was months and months ago.

When they threatened to put my account in collections in March 2002 I threatened to sue but nothing has happened. I have requested itemized statements over 5 times and all they say is that they were printed and sent but I NEVER receive them.

All I receive are the bills and now they have transferred my account to the collection agency for $658.50 because i have unfortunately continued to pay even though i NEVER received an itemized statement only to protect my credit. This is so unfair!

i am taking them to small claims court but i feel that there should be a class action suit filed against this company who has no doubt no only cheated me out of money but hundreds and maybe thousands of other consumers!

#1 Consumer Suggestion

It's not about the money, it's about how they do business

AUTHOR: H - ()

My account was also transferred into collection for $150. It's not about the money, it's about how they do business. It's unacceptable! I didn't received any bills from them for the past 10 months after I closed my account and why all the sudden into collection? I believe something must be done here. I wrote an email to ABC today too. I couldn't find any info about class action lawsuit against them.
