Comcast in Houston, Texas - Misinformation

I am in my first 30 days and will be stopping service. I kept asking what would be the charges in the 2nd year of the two yr agreement. The CSR said an additional $10, the chat rep said $20, I finally a week later received the agreement and it was $30. I was told I could change the plan within the first 30 days and still after several calls to the "loyalty" dept, I am still not changed to Blast Plus. Consumerist.com has a funny video about the Comcast reps. It is too bad you cannot trust anything their reps tell you. I have been writing the FCC about my experience. It will be a shame if the FCC allows the Time Warner merger which will benefit only the stockholders and NOT the consumers. From the postings I am to understand it will take several calls and about 8 weeks to get my "30day satisfaction" refund.

Comcast in Naples, Florida - NO REGARD FOR CUSTOMER!

I'm a 63 year old business owner, and have delt with many vendors over the years, but I have never been subjected to such horrific customer service as Comcast. I have a lot of patience, but I felt compelled to vent somewhere. Number one rule in business: "Do what you say you are going to do, when you say you are going do it." We customers keep you in business, but I guess when you have a monopoly you just don't care. Comcast is one of those companies so focused on profit, you need to call a "call center" in another country. We could use jobs here in America.

I as a senior citizen am really upset over the latest stunt Comcast has pulled on it's customers. Here in Peoria, Il. Comcast has the monopoly over the airwaves. The first bone head move was to come out with the "black box" or digital adapter which you must have to...

You're welcome! I'm curious though, why do you want a stranger kissing any part of your body regardless of where it is?

I'm assuming you want me to put my lips on your rear end??

What a weirdo! And no, I don't work for Comcast.....

Comcast doesn't know the meaning of customer service. You either have to be an abject masochist or totally insane to ever order their service. After one month of trying to get hooked up I finally said forget it. you can't reach a real person and if you do they are...

I am so frustrated with Comcast. We have phone, internet and cable services.

Nothing has worked consistently since I moved in three months ago. I've spent literally hours on the phone with representatives trying to "talk" me through a problem over the phone only to be transferred to another department where we get to start all over again verifying all of the account information. When I finally do get a technician out they tend to be polite but I find they are not qualified to handle the problem, not certified to fix the weak signal to the house, and simply want to leave as quickly as possible to finish their day. Many of the agents I've spoken to on the phone can not deviate from a script and are completely clueless.

It has been a complete waste of time scheduling service calls.

A woman named Shirleesha actually seemed to really enjoy being of ZERO help and she refused to let me talk to anyone else finally pushing me over the edge. Bottom line, avoid Comcast/Xfinity!

Comcast in Chicago, Illinois - Horrible supervisor

My DVR would not work, so I called tech support to send a signal to hopefully get my movies I had saved on the DVR. When it did not work, I asked tech support how long the DVR's last. He did not know, so I asked to speak with a supervisor. I asked Paul the supervisor on Sunday Jan 26, 2014 at 8:25 pm central time (I hope conversation was TAPED) and when I asked Paul how long the DVR's last....his comment was "Do I know when a person is going to die?" REALLY???? you would compare a human to an electronic device?????????? What an ***.....I have never had such disrespect from a supervisor!!!!!!!!!!!!! He should be fired!!!

So because they couldn't tell you exactly when DVRs stop working you get butthurt? Why was this escalated to a manager exactly?

You really know nothing about anything if you expect a concrete answer to when a device will die. There can be many reasons that a piece of equipment fails to work properly.

The hard drive may have become corrupt, parts overheat(especially since most people put their set top boxes in enclosed spaces, leading to heat becoming trapped), or software glitches. Electronic devices, like people, can die of many different complications.

I would say that his rhetorical question was apt for the situation. Grow up.

We all know Comcast customer service is bad, but...

Contacted Comcast to add a land line to my existing internet service. The tech arrived an hour early and talked me out of it!! Stating I would have to remove my current home security system and have the service replaced my XFinity Home Protection. Reasoning that if I lost power the Comcast system would not function as intended with my current system. Why would they offer an incompatible phone service? and... I wonder why he was an hour early? It amazes me this company is still in business, I never seen worse practices. It appears not only are they uninterested in keeping current customers, but they don't "really" want new ones either. Not really a complaint but very odd indeed. I guess another provider in the area would be better anyway.

Comcast - Harassing me claiming debt through Credit Protection Assocation L P

I have been repeatedly contacted by mail by a debt collecting company hired by comcast called Credit Protection Assocation L P.They have claimed that I had a previous comcast bussiness account that was closed before an year, and I owe them $315 for unreturned equipment. I called comcast customer care team numerous time to resolve this matter, each time Comcast saying me that I dont have any debt!!.The last time the comcast support even gave me a confirmation code that I dont have any debt.. But, still i am getting these mails.i wonder how can they do such mistakes and pass on such informations to the debt collecting companies.

Comcast - The representative was rude.

I had sent him an email, he asked for my address and never got back to me. Finally he called and asked for my SSN, and credit card number. I only said that I wasn't feeling comfortable saying it over the phone, and I would prefer to provide the information to the person who comes to set up the system. His tone was rude and harsh. He was kind of bullying me. I finally gave my SSN and CC information over the phone, about which I still feel uncomfortable. If I had a choice, I would stay with RCN, these guys are nice, and professional. But my building only accepts comcast. After he got all my personal information, he said he would get back to me - again didn't mention a time - and still I haven't heard from him. I will talk again to the manager and if I have any choice, I will not stay with comcast. I am not going to pay somebody to be rude to me. If he hates people, he shouldn't work with people. I wish you would invest on training your employees on how to talk to customers. People have a choice, they can just choose another service. I am very disappointed, and pissed off that I have to get comcast.

I've setup 4 comcast accounts in the last 12 years and I'm sorry to tell you this but they never ask for a credit card number. I think he never got back to you because he used that info to book an all expense paid by you vacation.

I'd keep an eye on your credit report if I were you. You should never give your personal info to someone who calls you.

Ask for their extension and call them back on their listed business number. If they can't or unwilling to give it to you report them to the police.

Oh my goodness they want proof of who you are to put in a secure system tather than tell a technician who will write it on paper and can pass the information along to others or drop it or throw it away in a public place to be stolen...shame on comcast for keeping your information secure...the phone reps will never have access to that unless they write it down...then the call is documented and the workers information is easy to find and he or she can be found...shame on them for not allowing you to give private information to someone in a comcast uniform....where do u live...i will come over with a fake comcast id and uniform so i can get your credit card number an ssn...i could use some extra money

Mike is entirely right! If you don't like giving out SSN and credit card number to start services you can always just use an antenna!

How rude of them to ask for your SSN and credit card info. Total horrible customer service! They're supposed to believe us when we tell them that we have good credit and pay our bills on time!

Unacceptable!

On the other hand, I've been watching nothing but public service announcements via my antenna and haven't looked back.

You don't say if you already have a Comcast account. If you are trying to set one up, you definitely need to provide your info.

I have never heard of handling that through the service person.

You DO have a choice - don't get anything. Use an antenna or pay for city-wide wireless broadband if you just need internet.

Comcast in Newark, Delaware - Fraudulent sales pratices

Comcast sales reps often create fake sales accounts to make commissions many consumers have items on their credit reports because of this practice and many existing subject to greedy sales reps and management who want commissions and praise for great sales ,who will add services to account without authorization.Comcast employees make commission on almost all products they sell and Management is always willing to turn a blind eye and deaf ear to any knowledge to the unethical practices that have become the norm at Comcast. Most people are unaware that by giving their address and phone number makes them easy pickings for Comcast employees

Comcast in San Francisco, California - High pressure sales guys lied to promote service

Early this year a couple of high pressure sales guys came to my house selling a system that they promised would save me $30.00 a month with no change to my equipment. They said they would supply a SD TV receiver that I did not have to use if I did not want to. They actually told me I would only pay $49.95 compared to my regular $76.95 that I pay. They deliberately neglected to to me about regulatory fees that actually bring the price up-to what I pay now, however I was able to get them to admit that such fees would be added to the $49.95. I foolishly signed up for their system. They came on a Saturday to set everything up. It turned out that they changed the Modem/Router which they had previously told me would not happen & I was upset about, but I let them set it all up anyway. It took 3 hours for them to set everything up, which is way longer than I have ever taken to do it when I do it myself, so I do not think they are very experienced in the process. Once they left I noticed that the Internet was sluggish & Voip was choppy. I left the system alone for a week or so, thinking that it would settle down, which it did not. So a few days ago I put my old modem & router back, everything works really well again. A couple of days ago I returned the equipment to a Comcast Office, they put my billing back to how it was before my nightmare began. I am still trying to understand why Comcast is involved in this type of high pressure selling, it seems so counter productive, anyone with any sense is just going to switch back to whatever system they had before. My neighbor had an even worse experience/narrow escape. He was told that his bill would be $120.00 for a particular plan. One day while he was at work a Comcast engineer arrived to install the system even though he had not signed any contract. Fortunately he was able to straiten it all out, but he found that the system the guys were forcing onto him would have cost $160.00 a month, not the $120.00 he was promised, as he only pays $130.00 at the moment it did not make any sense for him to change. I hope that Comcast will stop these high pressure tactics to stop their reputation plummeting to even greater depths! Telling lies to customers is not helping Comcasts reputation. I intend to check with other neighbours to see the extent of this fraud.
