Re: Lost or Stolen Phone Helpful Links

I have been on the phone two times in the past 48 hours trying to resolve an account issue.   My daughter is a college freshman and she lost her phone.  Of course, she thought she just misplaced it so didn't immediately report it.    In the interim someone found it and made thousands of dollars of calls to PAKISTAN.     Each time I call I am bounced from customer accounts (the account was suspended) to fraud to international.   Each time I get different excuses and stories about what is wrong.       After the first call I was promised a call back withiin 24-48 hours.   No call came.   I called again today.   AGAIN, I have now been promised a call back within 24-48 hours.     I was told each time I was transferred that I would go to a live person who could help me.   Instead, I would end up back in a phone queue with an automated assistant.      If I lost a credit card, the company would forgive the fraudulent charges.    No one seems to have any authority to go what is right for a loyal customer.      I have been overwrought now all through Thanksgiving.  No one can seem to help me.

Re: Lost or Stolen Phone Helpful Links

Hi everyone,   I was finally able to get this situation resolved.  I escalated to the Office of the President and the complaint line that they maintain there.   I reached a live person who took down my information.   He then referred my case to a customer resolution expert.   AT&T worked with campus security (and they are working with the local police departement about this too), and realized that the phone HAD been stolen, AND that the charges were fraudulent.    Today, the bill was credited with the amount of the international calls and the related fees.   What a relief!!
