Frances Wilson, a 79-year-old woman living in Albuquerque, N.M., on a fixed social security income, accidentally mailed her rent check to Comcast along with her monthly cable bill. It should've been an easy mistake to correct, given that the check wasn't made out to Comcast, but the two-time Worst Company in America has a knack for complicating things.
Comcast allegedly pulled strings to get one of their customers fired from his job at a prestigious accounting firm after he complained about billing issues and false charges. The former Comcast customer, identified only as "Conal," told his story to Consumerist, the site whose readers have named Comcast "the worst company in America" two years running.
Two recent high-profile calls to Comcast customer service—one where a rep kept a couple stuck in a verbal loop for 20 minutes as they desperately tried to disconnect their service, and one where the company only reversed fraudulent fees because the customer recorded the call—have opened the floodgates of evidence that your only choice for cable service doesn't give a shit about you.
