Comcast ripping consumers off

comcast once said that you would still get all your channels and wouldn't have to do anything for the digital conversion. now you have to get adapters only 3 free for old tv's after that you have to rent or buy them if you don't have digital tuner tv's. so i bought some new tv's and all was fine. now they are scrambling the digital signals so your digital tuner can't display them, forcing you to rent their digital set top boxes at 15.00 each per month. i already pay for the channels, now i have to rent the equipment to viem them. talk about double dipping into the consumers pocket.

I'm just another powerless consumer, being jacked around by conglomerates like Comcast, who are in no way held accountable. Their greed and avarice go unchecked. What can we do?

Repellent sound effect on Comcast phone menu

If there is any way to make a phone menu worse, Comcast has found it. While you wait for the next step in the phone menu, you get a sound effect that sounds like someone clicking his tongue in your ear. Or like someone calling a horse. Since you have to answer several questions to get a live person, you hear this repellant sound probably four times. By then I want to throw the phone across the room. Whoever came up with this, and the *** who approved it, should be forced to listen to it for an hour. I can't be the only person who despises this obnoxious sound effect.

Comcast review in Washington, District Of Columbia: Pathetic Manager

Thank you! Thank you for submitting your consumer complaint. Click here to return to ConsumerAffairs.com. The following information was successfully added to the ConsumerAffairs.com database Name Paula Booker Address: 9348 Ridges Meadow Lane Knoxville , TN 37931 Country: United States Home Phone 693-1770 Work Phone Email Address: p.booker@comcast.net Company Name: Toyo Ext. 51134 Company Contact: Toyo Ext. 51134 no last name provided Company Address: Knoxville TN 37931 Country: United States Company Phone 865-637-5411 Incident 6/8/2010 To: the Comcast Manager and President I am upset about your company harrassing me (Toya @ extension 51134) about a non-issue from the past. I have used comcast for many years, and all of my families as well. One of your employese gave me, my pre-paid monthly fee back because I was in good standing when I changed to another company. This change was due to losing a job. I had to cut back. This was in 2008. Later today I rebutted this old charged (again) because my pre-paid month was returned to me. That alone establishes that I was in good standing, and I owed nothing monetarily. I was told Comcast would pick up the box. I was not working during that period. I was layed off. How can your company state that because comcast stated they would pick it up, It is my fault. No I did not make your employees pick up your box within a week, it is not my fault. This has been two years. I paid my bills or I would not have been refunded. I have requested comcast to not harrass me any more. I have requested data from Knology to document when I started using Knology. Paula Booker, 9348 Ridges Meadow Lane, Knoxville TN 37931 9. Termination Of This Agreement a. Term. This Agreement will be in effect from the time that charges commence until (i) it is terminated as provided for by this Agreement or by any addendum to this Agreement or (ii) it is replaced by a revised Agreement. If you self-install Comcast Equipment, Service charges begin the earliest of (i) the day on which you picked up Comcast Equipment at our service center, (ii) the day you install the Service, or (iii) five (5) days after the date we ship the Comcast Equipment to you. If you self-install an MTA, cable modem or converter that you obtained from a source other than Comcast, charges begin the day that your order for the Services is entered into our system. The option to self-install an MTA, cable modem or converter and/or to use a non-Comcast-supplied MTA, cable modem or converter is subject to availability. Any non-Comcast supplied MTA, cable modem or converter must comply with Comcast's minimum requirements. b. Termination by You. Unless you have signed a minimum term addendum, you may terminate this Agreement for any reason at any time by notifying Comcast in one of three ways: (i) send a written notice to the postal address of your local Comcast business office; (ii) send an electronic notice to the e-mail address specified on www.comcast.com; or (iii) call our customer service line during normal business hours. ( P.B. called the Oak Ridge branch to discontiinue comcast services on (or around) the October 2008. ) I am waiting for proof. Subject to applicable law or the terms of any agreements with governmental authorities, all applicable fees and charges will accrue until this Agreement has terminated, Paula states; the Services was disconnected, and all Comcast Equipment has been returned. Paula states; Why did comcast not contact me earlier? The dates were scheduled. They did not show up on the Saturday. Paula states; I was in proper standing, I was refunded $135.72, advance bill. Comcast was not in use at all from 12-19-2008 on. (Ordered verification of the start date for Knology) We will refund all prepaid monthly service fees charged for Services after the date of termination (less any outstanding amounts due Comcast for the Services, affiliate services, Comcast Equipment, or other applicable fees and charges). I Paula Booker called Comcast on in December 2008 to inform Comcast I had cancelled all comcast services and I had installed Knology services on 12-19-2008. Comcast asked me to provide a date to come to my home and remove all comcast equiptment (the box). I told them after work was fine, but they wanted me to miss my job. I was refunded $135.72, advance bill. THAT PART IS RIGHT! Later, (Comcast) waited to come my home January 2, 2009 to pick up their box, and recently requested me to pay another bill because they did not come to my home (to pick up box, all of a five minute job) before the end of the month of December 08. I was not working full time during this period. I was available. I had Knology phone, cable TV and internet. NOT my fault, I wasn't using it, I had Knology. c. Suspension and Termination by Comcast. Under the conditions listed below, Comcast reserves the right, subject to applicable law, to act immediately and without notice to terminate or suspend the Services and/or to remove from the Services any information transmitted by or to any authorized users (e.g., email or voicemail). Comcast may take these actions if it: (i) determines that such use or information does not conform with the requirements set forth in this Agreement, (ii) determines that such use or information interferes with Comcast's ability to provide the Services to you or others, (iii) reasonably believes that such use or information may violate any laws, regulations, or written and electronic instructions for use, or (iv) reasonably believes that such use or information interferes with or endangers the health and/or safety of our personnel or third parties. Comcast's action or inaction under this Section shall not constitute review or approval of your or any other users' use of the Services or information transmitted by or to you or users. d. Your Obligations upon Termination. You agree that upon termination of this Agreement you will do the following: i. You will immediately cease all use of the Services and all Comcast Equipment; ii. You will pay in full for your use of the Services up to the date that this Agreement has been terminated and the Services are disconnected; and iii. Within ten (10) days of the date on which Services are disconnected, you will return all Comcast Equipment to us at our local business office or to our designee in working order, normal wear and tear excepted. Otherwise, you will be charged the amount set forth in the current pricing lists for such Comcast Equipment, or the revised amount for which you receive notice; if no amount has been specified for the particular model of Comcast Equipment, you will be charged the retail price for a new replacement. You may also be charged incidental costs that we incur in replacing the Comcast Equipment. Upon our request, you will permit us and our employees, agents, contractors, and representatives to access the Premises during regular business hours to remove the Comcast Equipment and other material provided by Comcast. We will conduct this removal at a time agreed on by you and us, and you will ensure that all Comcast Equipment is returned to Comcast. We will conduct this removal at a time agreed on by you and us, and you will ensure that all Comcast Equipment is returned to Comcast. (iii) I called customer service line during normal business hours. Paula Booker notified Comcast verbally to discontinue comcast services and I gave the date and time and they agreed to meet me at my home for the scheduled time, per the agreement between customer and supplier. Subject to applicable law or the terms of any agreements with governmental authorities, all applicable fees and charges will accrue until this Agreement has terminated, the Services have been disconnected, and all Comcast Equipment has been returned. We will refund all prepaid monthly service fees charged for Services after the date of termination (less any outstanding amounts due Comcast for the Services, affiliate services, Comcast Equipment, or other applicable fees and charges). a. Your Obligations upon Termination. You agree that upon termination of this Agreement you will do the following: i. You will immediately cease all use of the Services and all Comcast Equipment; P.B. Completed, My service was turned off by my request, Oct. or Dec.9-2008. For your information I am getting copies from Knology to show you when the contract was initiated between me and Knology. ii. You will pay in full for your use of the Services up to the date that this Agreement has been terminated and the Services are disconnected; P.B. Completed! Comcast gave my money back for the previous month (due to comcast billing a month ahead). Comcast should have came to pick up their equipment after work hours or the first Saurday. They did not have the resources or wanted more money by not picking up the hardware before the 10 days. Not my problem, it is Comcast problem. I did not have any delays when I started the service, and the honest employee who returned my money, knew I was in good standing. Comcast is to blame for not picking up their box and they left it my home two days over their limit… NOT my fault, that is comcast fault. I will send a copy of when Knology took over. When I moved to my new place, Comcast provided the new box quickly, no delay. Why is their tardiness my problem? It is not my problem. As the manager stated they picked it up. iii. Within ten (10) days of the date on which Services are disconnected, you will return all Comcast Equipment to us at our local business office or to our designee in working order, normal wear and tear excepted. Otherwise, you will be charged the amount set forth in the current pricing lists for such Comcast Equipment, or the revised amount for which you receive notice; if no amount has been specified for the particular model of Comcast Equipment, you will be charged the retail price for a new replacement.

P.B. I did. Subject to applicable law or the terms of any agreements with governmental authorities, all applicable fees and charges will accrue until this Agreement has terminated, the Services have been disconnected, and all Comcast Equipment has been returned. We will refund all prepaid monthly service fees charged for Services after the date of termination (less any outstanding amounts due Comcast for the Services, affiliate services, Comcast Equipment, or other applicable fees and charges). P.B. there were no other applicable fees or charges. Documents will be provided to dictate and prove Knology start date at my home and how they scheduled appointments and did not show. I will make sure my family and friends knows how they will be treated when they use comcast. Paula Booker June 9th 3:27 Damage Resulting Streesed, and I should not have to ask for help, for alleging issues. I will never use comcast again, and I will tell my family and freinds about the bad customer service. Have Lawyer Contact Me Y Thank you for your submission.

I've sent 2 emails about my erroneous and ever changing bills (not one in the past 15 months has been the same but have never received a response to the emails - last year I spent months speaking to j7-9 different people to correc matter. Never received a logical or adequate response - just kept adjusting the bill. When I finally received CS using local number they couldn't explain my bills for the past year an a half, had to research and call me back (in my experience it won't happen) furthermore I was tolede that "bundling" service does not really exist as my cable phone and interned all expire at different times although all were installed on same date for same period. was told after 12 months my bundle discount for all three services would go from 89 to 110. Now am told each service is expiring on different months ( although installed on same date) that the basic rate for bundle of all three was never 109.99, is not now and never was. Literature I have from your company indicates that after 12 months bundle of all three goes to 109.99 per month plus taxes and any extra channels ordered.

COMCAST NEEDS TO CLOSE DOWN!

I called comcast approximately 28 times in the last 6 weeks because I keep getting booted from Internet; they have sent out 8 technicians and STILL can't solve the problem. They called today and told me a tech would come out. I waited over 7 hours the tech never called or showed-up. I have missed hours and hours from work and used up hundreds upon hundreds of minutes from my cell calling Comcast and they still can't get it together. THESE IDIOTS NEED TO CLOSE DOWN PERMANENTLY! They need to reimburse me for my lost wages and phone calls.

My service went out again Thursday (yesterday) and I called Comcast and they tried to tell me that my equipment was bad and that I needed to to replace my router . .

. duh its NEW. After fussing at them I was mysteriously disconnected. A few minutes later my service was restored.

OK, today I got a "bill" from comcast that basically says "no payment due", but it doesn't show the amount of the credit that I have on my account.

These people suck. They should show me on each monthly bill the amount of credit that I have on my account. This company is like a BAD circus act . .

. the left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing!

I was wrong initally . . . i had called something like 57 times within 2-3 months and the problems continue. No othercompany services my area so I am kind of STUCK with them. I filed a complaint with the better business bureau and Comcast gave me a whole $25 credit on my account. They should have giveme at least a free YEAR of internet and cable service for putting up with that ***.

Thanks for the link above comcastmustdie.com I will be using that to complain also.

Good luck everyone, oh and since February I have now called comcast approximately 73 times with various service related issues. THEY TRULY SUCK and have no TRUE IDEA of what customer service is all about.

Comcast: The Worst Business on Earth.

This Company is, in a word, shadey. They are deceitful and money-grubbing, and it amazes me that they get away with ripping off millions of people on a daily basis. They provide faulty equipment, and then charge you to come fix or collect it. Their 'techs' are corrupt and shady: Our last tech even said he was going to lie on the sheet about the cable wire count, so that he could get paid more, promising it would not affect us. They limit internet and affect connectivity, their shadiness is unrivaled. They control a monopoly on communications in my small college town, and rip off young families and students for profit! Corruption, Greed, and Poor business practices must be stopped.

I agree 100% and it doesn't sound like things have changed since I dumped them in 2001.

Where to begin with my troubles with them. I'm in Michigan. Back in 1998 they ran an ad saying you could order the Playboy channel for 99 cents. It was a Tax Day promotion they were running. This was back in the day where you had to call the 800 number for pay-per-view and stuff.

I called and waited, and waited for something to come on the TV. Nothing!! I flipped up and down the channels as I was new at the time to the city. As it turned out, my city DID NOT carry Playboy at the time.

I called the local Comcast customer service number. Told the girl what happened not to be charged the extra $1. She said for some reason the channel wasn't in my area and apologized for it.

The next month I get the bill in. I see not only 99 cents for Playboy charged to me but also $10 for Spice which I DID NOT order!! I called to complain. This rep. swore to me up and down that I DID have Playboy in my area. I said "madam, as we speak I am flipping through the channels again. there is nothing here". She still refused to believe that. I said she could come here to see for herself or send out a tech to confirm it. She of course refused that and it was all taken off the bill.

I was always the pro wrestling guy. I would get WWF, WCW, and ECW each pay-per-view. Each ppv would come on, then flick on and off, then go out totally. I had to call them to get the shows back on and missed matches! This happened almost every time! First they tried to say maybe my bill wasn't on time and paid in full. I corrected that excuse by paying in full each month. Then they said it was due to what's called a "bullet signal" to stop the black boxes. The problem was never corrected.

In Dec. 2000 I wanted to charge the bill to free up cash for Christmas gifts. I spoke to a rep. She told me it was "all set". A few weeks later I got a bill in the mail saying I was past due and now billed for two months!

I got a hold of the area GM. She said "Oh I'm sorry sir. They didn't close out the process. There's no excuse for that". Think they would have given me free cable? Nope. I had to give her the credit card info again.

At that time I got a hold of my regional cable comission to file a report. The head of it was no help. He told me to "just switch" to another company if they were giving me so much trouble. I told him I wanted them held accountable. He was wishy washy and said they only had meetings when there was complaints or new businesses to discuss. He said he'd call me after the first of the year (2001) to attend a meeting. To this day I'm still waiting for that call back. LOL.

Finally it was during WWF SummerSlam 2001. The ppv went out again on me. That was it. I dropped them for WOW Cable. To this day I've never had a problem with WOW.

One day I was making dinner in Oct 2006. Comcast reps came door to door to try and sell me. I told them I'd never go back. The woman tried to tell me they've made "vast improvements". I wasn't sold. Then she casually tells me I still had a $60 balance from 2001. LOL. She said if I switched back they'd waive it. Nope not sold.

When they left I went right on my computer and filed a complaint with the State AG. Several weeks later I got a letter from Comcast showing me a zero balance.

With all the complaints and threats of legal action, I don't know how they're still in business. Now they plan on buying NBC. My guess is, people see and hear all their ads and assume "they must be the best". And they are a monopoly too in some areas. Tons of friends and family would switch to WOW but it's not in their area.

Comcast has slyly raised my internet rate significantly

sirs; i'm seeking help, advice, or info to try to obtain some fairness concerning the note, in very small letters, on my most recent "Comcast" bill for internet service only.....because we have very few options to get it from any other provider here in sugar land tx (first colony)....Comcast has to be the absolute worst corporation or media provider, i've ever had to deal with in my life..4 SEVERAL DIFFERENT REASONS ...BUT THIS "SCAM" TAKES THE CAKE!..b4 them it was time-warner..but the issue is that i've had a monthly service fee for the last 6 years, for "semi" high speed service, time-warner called it "road-runner lite"..FOR $26.95 A MO. PLUS THE RIP-OFF LEASE FEE OF $5.00 A MO,(WAS $3.00 LAST YEAR)????AND COMCAST IN ITS INFINITE GREED AND WEALTH, IS GOING TO MAKE A SENIOR CITIZEN WHO MAKES POVERTY WAGES...PAY AN INCREASE TO "$48.00" A MO. ....THIS DOESN'T SOUND LIKE MUCH, BUT WHEN YOU ARE PINCHING EVERY PENNEY NOW, INCOME HAS BEEN REDUCED & NO $ LEFT AFTER I PAY EXPENSES, TRYING TO HOLD ON TO MY OLD HOUSE;..ITS TOUGH AND GETTING TOUGHER!!...THEY DID THIS IN A VERY "SNEAKY" WAY WHICH ADDS INSULT TO INJURY BY STATING "RECENTLY WE REVIEWED YOUR ACCOUNT & DISCOVERED YOU HAVE BEEN "UNDERCHARGED" FOR 'HIGH-SPEED SERVICE'. THE CHARGE SHOULD BE $42.95 + $5.00 FOR THEIR MODEM 'LEASE FEE' PER MONTH...YOUR NEXT STATEMENT WILL REFLECT THIS RATE."....THERE WAS NO NOTIFICATION OR OPTION OFFERED..I'VE HAD THIS "GRANDFATHERED" RATE AND APPARENTLY "COMCAST" HAS SOME KIND OF 'MONOPOLY' ON THIS AREA, BELIEVE IT OR NOT,...I CALLED A.T.T. FOR INTERNET SERVICE AND THE LADY SD THEY ARE NOT ALLOWED IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD...BASICALLY...I CANNOT BELIEVE THAT THIS COMPANY HAS THE POWER TO FORCE YOU TO PAY EXORBITENT INTERNET RATES & NOT HAVE ANY COMPETITON HERE??...*(UNLESS I WANT TO PAY A MUCH HIGHER MONTHLY FEE & BUY OR LEASE EQUIPMENT TO GET WIRELESS INTERNET SERVICE)....SHOULDN'T THERE BE A CONSUMER PROTECTION LAW SOMEWHERE THAT WOULD ALLOW ME TO GET CHEAPER SERVICE FROM ANOTHER COMPANY??? I DO NOT HAVE A WIRED TELEPHONE @ MY HOUSE, JUST A CELL.....MJZ... THERE ARE 'HIGH POWERED TEXAS POLITICIANS' OUT HERE WITH VERY MUCH WEALTH IN "FT. BEND COUNTY", WHERE I AM LOCATED,...this is where Senator TOM DELAY WAS PRESIDING B4 HE DECIDED HE NEEDED TO MOVE OUT OF TEXAS DUE TO SOME SCANDAL... (HE HELPED RAISE PROPERTY TASES THRU THE ROOF SO THESE POLITICAL CRONIES COULD MAKE EXORBITENT AMOUNTS OF $ IN THE LOCAL GOVERNMENTS, HERE IN SUGAR LAND,TX...APPARENTLY "COMCAST" CAN DO WHATEVER THEY WANT TO, ALSO ...I MAY HAVE TO DO WITHOUT INTERNET SERVICE IF I GET LAID OFF....
