Comwave Home Phone

Account Number: XXXXXXXX
Problem: asking for $64.33

On May-18-2012, we ordered Comwave's home phone service thinking that we would use it for a long time. However, we decided to go another route, and effectively cancelled it. We received our package (home phone adapter) on Jun-02-2012 (I have a tracking number with Canada Post to confirm this). Whether or not the 30-day satisfaction guarantee is within 30 days of the receiving of the package, or the ordering of the plan, we cancelled it on Jun-08-2012, meeting both deadlines.

An e-mail told us that a $50 fee may be given if we do not ship them the adapter back within 30 days. Our account is now disabled on, so there is no way of showing if we have any due payments (why would the account be disabled if we did owe them money?).

Even so, it has been 6 months since this time, and we have not received a bill, or phone call of any kind informing us of anything that may have gone wrong. Also, the dollar amount that mailed us with is puzzling. What exactly have we done that has amounted up to $64.33?

I ask of Comwave to give me any information possible, or to terminate the due payment asked by this collection agency.

Hello LaggingHard,

We have moved your account number and other private information to the private info area in your gripe. Comwave will be able to see that information from their dashboard, and the general public will not be able to view it.

Please add any future private information to the private information area in your gripe.

Thank you,

This rating will contribute to your overall Customer Satisfaction Index (CSI score), which is visible on your Gripevine company profile page. Responding to your gripes quickly will give your customers an incentive to boost your score and show the community that your business values and responses to its customers are important to you as a company.
