The phone call I got yesterday from somebody claiming to represent Visa was actually from Vonage, an attempt to get my new credit card number so they can continue billing me after they refused to put through my repeated requests for cancellation (see previous update).
Wow. At least I was right about this being a scam to make fraudulent use of my credit card.
Just wondering… Has anybody else had a problem canceling a Vonage phone account? I’ve called them three times already, but somehow the cancellation never managed to go through. Sounds a lot like the scam AOL used to pull, until they were prosecuted for it, in which they’d simply ignore cancellations and continue to bill (former) customers’ credit cards.
I’m one of the lucky ones: My credit card was compromised last month (usually not a lucky break), and Vonage keeps trying to bill my now-closed credit card number without success. Several times a week they e-mail me asking me to call them to give them a new credit card number to bill.
Probably not gonna happen.
