Consumer Complaint: My wife and I had XXXX XXXX until we moved to a different house. Because of where we were moving to XXXX was not the best service for our new location so we canceled it. It took us a while to get settled into our new home and the equipment got put into a box that we didnt realize never got unpacked until quite a while later. When we came upon the equipment my wife called and spoke to someone and asked if we were being charged for it. They advised that an amount of {$770.00} was being charged for the 3 boxes that we had. She asked if we submitted them back if that amount would be taken off and we were assured that it would be. My wife got a XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX return Reciept from the person she spoke with and went to the XXXX store the next day, which was XX/XX/17. The XXXX XXXX XXXX representative said to make sure that we kept the reciept and proof that it was sent back. Just recently I got a credit alert that there was a new debt in collections for {$770.00} through IC Systems on behalf of XXXX XXXX XXXX. I immmediately called XXXX XXXX XXXX and told them what happened provided them with the information from my reciept and the woman I spoke with said no problem she would submit a case and it would get taken care of. That was over two weeks ago and this collection is still on my account. I called back, spoke with a XXXX and she advised the case I had submitted was rejected because it was over the allowed timeline to submit the equipment and I would still be charged with it. I told her that no one had ever mentioned to us since the day we returned the equipment that we would be over a time limit to return it- and we were absolutely not informed that even if they received the equipment back we would still be charged. I explained all of this to XXXX, who basically said that I was told wrong information and there wasnt anything she could do. I find this very frustrating and ridiculous. As soon as we found our equipment we tried to make it right with XXXX XXXX XXXX and were told it would all be taken care of. Why go through the trouble of waiting in line at a XXXX store and hanging onto this paperwork for over a year if we werent going to have those charges removed? I would like XXXX XXXX XXXX to honor their word and remove the charges- since they can confirm they DO have the equipment we sent back to them and we were never told about this mysteries deadline until today when I was told my request was rejected.
