Hello nm-2014

 

I apologise that you are experiencing an issue with your billing and it has not been resolved.

 

Is the service still active it is unusual for a bill to be sent twice in a month as they are produced at the end of a billing period unless you are receiving a bill for two different account numbers.

 

We have one number for Telstra and when you contact us you are connected to the first available Team Member who handles the call type regardless of the location.

 

Have you asked the Team Member to escalate this or lodged a complaint with us if it has not been resolved?.

 

You can view our Complaints process and the information on how to lodge a complaint on this CrowdSupport page https://crowdsupport.telstra.com.au/t5/Accounts-Plans/Lodging-a-complaint-with-Telstra/ta-p/68188

 

I also apologise that you were not advised that the system will add late fees to an overdue amount even when the account is in dispute these charges can be removed.

Do NOT stuff around with Telstra's 'complaints' department - on-shore OR off-shore.

Go straight to the Telecommunications Ombudsman - NOW!

Been there, done that.

The Ombudsman kicked a lot of Telstra butt and I now have the most amazing Telstra / BigPond service.

Shouldn't have been necessary to do so, but I was at my wit's end.

Set it & forget it

With direct debit there’s no need to give paying your bill another thought.

Avoid queuing up and never worry about late fees again.
