Elite Daily- Tennessee’s Adrian Fraim is a Comcast customer who wanted to move his service to a new residence.
The Internet provider told him over the phone that it wouldn’t be a problem and that a technician would come take care of it.
None of this turned out to be true, however, and like many Comcast customers before him, Fraim was slapped with a bill for something he didn’t ask for.
The technician never showed up, and when Fraim called to ask why, he was told that Comcast doesn’t provide service to his new location, about 50 miles away.
Adriannnnnn, come on bro. Be better than this. Some of this has got to fall on your shoulders. I'm not saying that Comcast is free of fault. Far from it. Cable companies are one step below rapists and murderers. It's a miracle that every employee hasn't been locked up for extortion. This is a well known fact though. If there is a way to swindle you, a cable company will find it and milk that cash cow for all it's worth. That's why it is borderline insanity to sign a 3 year contract with a cable company. I didn't even know you could do that, but its sounds like an awful idea. That's like signing a lifetime contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars. It's basically selling your soul to Comcast for DVR and cheap HBO. Far too much fine print as well. A lot can happen in three years, why would anyone want to lock themselves down with a group of people as soulless as the cable company?
I wonder how long it would take me to figure out this mistake. The 4-6 hour window that the cable company gives you in the biggest sham since the electronic ab belt that claimed it could stimulate your fat belly into a 6 pack. Has a cable company ever shown up when they were supposed to? I think they just use the appointment time a suggestion. Pretty sure they have never taken a suggestion seriously in their lives. If they tell me they are showing up on Monday at 5pm, I wouldn't even be worried until Friday. Got to admire this kid's persistence to get his money back. He probably spent 100 hours 'on the phone' (waiting on hold) to clear up this mistake. I would almost rather burn $3,000 cash then wait for one of those miserable bastards to pick up my phone call. Can't say the kid didn't make out like a bandit, got his money back and now he can't even use Comcast. Whether he knows it or not, that's the ultimate win here.
