  1. Hi Leighton

    I would like to bring to your attention that I have received horrendous treatment from Virgin Mobile since my first call to customer services!! I am seriously P*** off by the whole network now!!

    The package was sold with sales agents agreeing to my every wish, without any follow through. It is pathetic that customer services now has to bare the brunt of some sales guy who’s earned his commission.

    Firstly, I was registered for 2 contracts, of which one was approved and the other declined. I wasn’t informed of this and was sent the one phone anyway with no feedback. When I complained about that, they sent me a second contract no questions asked. Then I could not afford to make payments due to a financial crisis. My line was suspended and not re-instated. My bills continued and was debited off my account yet I received no services. I only discovered this when I called in to Virgin Mobile to find out what my arrears as my financial situation has gotten much better. I would also like to bring to your attention that for a year or more, I have been charged for a service that I did not request, namely Phonesured and want my money to be refunded.

    I trusted my case to be handled by Priscilla Mpuru who was supposed to get back to me but has, as yet, still not contacted me.

    I am super upset! Please call me on 0722 926 954. I’ve called in 3 times today and have been cut off all 3 times. Which makes the situation worse!!!
