Customer Question
Hello my name is *****...
Hello my name is ***** ***** have a big problem with Telstra I was talked into a contract for my son and I can not afford The guy Jason that signed me up kept on referring to his trophy on the wall and it made me feel guilty if I walked away from what he was trying to tell me about the contract no matter how many times he explained it to me I didn't understand it because I have ASPERGES . I am not using my disability as you guy's think I might be but I was razed old school to be honest and so Iam and I need help my problem is I want OUT of this contract that I sighed yes but never understood it or what I was really sighing for Or how much it would cost me. I would like to GO ON TO PREE PAYED AGAIN PLEASE. But what TELSTRA are saying is that I have been apparently been payed $400 dollars twice so it has been added to my next bill which means my next bill because I thought I had payed a bill with my visa card for a $182.47 But the bank had taken three payments back without my knowledge and kept the money so the $182.47 was not payed but they reimbursed me $400 dollars because I was ahead until then. Then I got told my next bill wold be $800 and something dollars because they apparently payed me the $400 twice. and they wont stop the monthly payments coming in so I can pay it off. But I also went to Telstra to sort it out with Debbie Robbie from the SALVASHION ARMY and we were told by Telstra not to pay anything until it was resolved . now the bill is up to a thousand dollars and more it will be about I have been told about two thousand if contract is end's. I am a single mum on DSP and I also have Epilepsy and has been slightly play up a lot of stress starts it up. if there is any way possible you can help me please don't hesitate to contact me ASAP . from Wendy Krista PH(###) ###-####
