Re: Cogeco final bill
You are not getting it. I can afford it but I got behind on the bill and when you do that when you had three services with the company at one time it adds up quick. I owe them like $200+. You guys make it sound like I can't afford the cable and other services I have with other companies but I can but I don't feel like giving Cogeco my money anymore when they are screwing over the consumer. I already got rid of two services through them this past year and now am thinking of totally ditching them.
You guys sure you aren't Cogeco hired trolls ? Don't preach to me about what I can't and can afford. How about ripping these companies for charging too much for everything under the watchful eye of the CRTC who is probably taking payola/bribes to keep all the companies in the monopolies of Canada happy.

If you cancel all your services, they're going to send you a final bill. In dealing with any company's collections department, I've always found that communication is key, and as long as you are dealing with them in good faith, making suitable arrangements, and sticking with what you agreed upon, you shouldn't have a problem.
If you're going to just divvy up the final bill into 2 or 3 parts I'm sure that would be fine. It would be helpful if, when calling them to make arrangements, you were planning on making a payment at that time.
So, say you owe them $300.
Call them up, let them know you are making a payment of $100 immediately, and will make a payment of $100 in 1 month's time and the last $100 in 2 months time.
I can't imagine that being refused.
It's the "not saying anything" that will get you into trouble with Cogeco (or any creditor).
Phorkster and Urbanriot are good contributors here. They may have just misunderstood your initial post.
For what it's worth, I agree Cogeco is not very good value for your dollar. Their services are overpriced. Better value can be had, you just need to shop around. Myself... Start for internet, Shaw Direct for TV, voip.ms for phone - spending far less per month that I used to and getting better quality services and better bang for my hard-earned dollar.
