Re: [Burloak] Usage Based Billing Nightmare

Remember people he doesn't have to PM his details the amounts on the bills can be searched and identified.

Then on the auspices on a follow up call to his earlier inquires a manger will contact him to make everything "ok" and we will never hear from him again.

I just really really hope that if someone in the media does make contact with the OP after Cogeco fixed it, he doesn't say "everything is fine" and they drop the story. I hope he rants and rants and rants about how much this screwed him over no matter what Cogeco may have done to fix it in the interim. The media loves a juicy story, and this has the potential to be a real juicy one.

You know what? That's a tough call. We're not talking a couple hundred bucks here. We're talking $2500+. That's a lot of bread and butter.

If I got a call saying "wipte the slate clean and we'll reverse all $2500... man.... I dunno.... I got a family to feed and bills to pay, a lot of which won't happen with that $2500 missing.

All that said, this can't help but me a major PR black eye for Cogeco, notwithstanding any amicable resolution. It's just too bloody ugly. In either official language.

Oh. Jeez.

Tough time to get TOTALLY RIPPED OFF BY COGECO for $2500.

As an odd coincidence, after I bought my first house I got spanked big time for unexpected expenses. Legal fees went up, lawn mower, rakes, hose, furnace filters, all kinds of little shit came out of the woodwork I didn't see coming. Total was about $2500.

Ah the good old homebuyer's curse. In my case lightning hit my house and burned every single appliance I owned. Shortly thereafter my pool emptied into my basement.

I'm sure by now they know exactly who they're dealing with. I'd think it yet another gaff if they didn't and already have some plan to smooth this shit out. It's going to get fugly.

Beans and rice for the next few months I guess...maybe spice things up with rock soup every now and again.

I know you Canadians do things differently but maybe move your pool from the living room to outside the house.
Joking aside, I feel for the OP and it is fantastic to see all of you rallying around him to help the situation and spread the word. Keep on fighting!

Or KD or Mister FN Noodles.

Actually, check the big groc stores for some 'Dollar Days' promos lately, (1 lb spaghetti or sauce for a buck each last week), including Giant Tiger for not as much variety but really decent deals on grocery items.

This week GT has Campbell Soups @ 50 cents per can for the main 4 flavours - limit 6, but bring friends/family to do several tickets.
