    Cingular Wireless Voice Mail Deposit
    Guest
    Yes,

    Cingular Wireless has sent me yet another bill with the fraudulent Voice
    Mail Deposit Charge!

    People, look at your bil. You may be the victim of the same fraudulent
    billing practice.

    Cingular Wireless promises to fix it on a monthly basis. They do not.
    The charge for Voice Mail Deposit continues to show up on my bill,
    charging me airtime minutes for calls that did not exist.

    If, after checking your bill, you find that you're be billed for Voice
    Mail Depost, please e-mail me at [email protected]

    Thanks.

    Give it a rest, get a life, get another cell service, whatever....
    But I for one am sick of hearing this stupid rant over and over and over and
    over and over.

    And another thing, why you and not the other 24 million customers. Get a
    life!

    Thank you for your support.

    It's not a stupid rant. I'm alerting other people to this potential
    problem on the bill. So far, I've had a couple of people e-mail me who
    have the same fraudulent billing problem.

    Why just a few of us out of 24 million customers? I couldn't tell you,
    but Cingular Wireless can't tell me either.

    Fraudulent--the intent to defraud. I very much doubt if there is any
    "intent" here. A few years ago I was getting billed 1 minute for every
    SMS message even though I was paying for an SMS package. It took
    Cingular at least 6 months to track the problem down and fix it--the
    first 3 months I had to call to get a credit. After that a supervisor
    had the entire bill automatically routed to her and she manually fixed
    the problem before sending the bill on. They finally got enough people
    reporting the problem for the programmers to isolate the commonalities
    and find and fix the bug. In this case it's probably some combination
    of factors in your account that's confusing the programs--especially if
    they have a few others. Work with them and try to keep it in
    perspective. They'll find the problem eventually. (Has anyone
    suggested completely deleting your account and re-defining it from
    scratch? A supervisor or manager could do that regardless of whether
    your current package is available--or they could offer you a better
    one.) Stay after them--but don't loose your cool--or your temper.

    Here are a few questions for you--how often do you think they bug they
    have causes the customer to be UNDERcharged, rather than over? Notice
    how many times you had to call? How many people do you think didn't
    bother to call and get the credit? How much money do you think they made
    on those overages?

    I finally put my foot down, this time.

    I told them that I refused to pay a fraudulent bill and that they would
    have to send me a corrected bill before I pay. And, furthermore, I told
    them that I would not pay the bill until every single bill from the last
    nine months (when this all started) is corrected and sent to me. I also
    alerted them to the fact that if they monkey with my credit rating or
    shut off my phone, that my lawyer will happily take it up with them in
    court.

    CW agreed to rebill every bill with Voice Mail Deposit.

    But, again, if I hadn't noticed it, they'd just be collected extra money
    from me every month, and it's relatively well-hidden on the bill.

    You may believe that's a mistake, but I have my doubts.

    As soon as the portable phone number system is working smoothly, I don't
    doubt I will.

    In the meantime, CW and I have some business to wrap up.
