Customer Question
I have made 5...

I have made 5 online complaints to Foxtel and received no answer from them at all. I have read their complaints policy and they have not complied with that. Can I get a complaint number to send to them as that is the only way i might get some sort of answer. I also was lied to when I was on the phone and I asked for a supervisor as per their complaints policy. i asked the so called person i was transfered to, prove he was a supervisor and he admitted he was not.

Lawyer's Assistant: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

ACT

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

5 online complaints. 5 phone calls.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

They also booked a service person to come and look at the problem and they never turned up.

Solicitor: Leon, Solicitor replied 7 months ago

Good Morning

Do you have copies of the complaints you have sent them?

In relation to the phone call you will have to sit down and make a detailed note recalling what was discussed who the other party was and what was said.

This is not the ombudsman.

The ombudsman will not speak to you online.

You have to lodge a formal complaint in writing and wait for them to contact Foxtel

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
