ugh Telstra fucked up royally and neglected to tell me that when I cancelled my mobile phone contact I would be charged $371. At the time when I was cancelling the contract, I was told the fee was only $60.....they neglected to tell me that the payback plan on the phone had a different disconnect fee all together.
Thanks to they're lack of communication I was contacted by a collection agency, who ignored my request to investigate what the debt was for and thus when I received a letter from a lawyer's office I completely went off the deep end.
Thankfully my case worker at CRS managed to sort all this shit out but I have to pay the $371   sigh I need more chocolate :(

Damn i am sorry. It makes me wonder what the exchange rate is from dollars to wonky spacebucks or whatever it is you use in upsidedownland. but in all seriousness that really blows. I am sorry you have to fork over that much money, hopefully it won't kill your pocketbook too bad. oh and i has no chocolates... sorry. Next time.

:hug: thanks
Lol the last time I heard the exchange rate is 83 US cents.
Yeah it sucks especially since I'm unemployed, but it didn't stop me from buying a large chocolate sundae from Maccas lol.
I should be all right once I get my tax return.

ah yeah I tend to do that too.
Weird thing is they don't sell Fruit chocs in Victoria 0.0
my poor Aunt found that out when she moved there and she's absolutely addicted to them. We send her care packages every now and then.

lol you'd think with how many counters are closed in forms submission line they'd hire more people to process the dole forms.
I sometimes spend 2 hours waiting in line to hand my dole form in.

These companies get away with murder sometimes, I'll bet if you complain they will tell you it is in the contract, which is either buried on the net somewhere or written in writing only a pixie could read.

If you were told 60 and have proof I'd challenge the extra charge and threatend legal action, most companies will back down if they think they have made a mistake or potentially will get bad publicity.

I've tried but sadly I have no proof
so I'll have to pay but I will be definitely complaining to consumer affairs about this.
