*I'm posting this publicly in here as your customer support team cannot get its act together to reply my urgent email.
I'm writing to dispute an overcharging of over $200 on my recontracted Starhub MaxInfinity 500 Mbps broadband plan for November and December 2018.
Timeline of events:
-On 29/10/2018, I recontracted my old fibre broadband plan to MaxInfinity 500 Mbps.@$29.90/month, with a one time reactivation charge of $56.71
-On 5/11/2018, I received a confirmation email from a Tay Yong Quan that my recontract is successful, and that the plan will take effect from 07 Nov 2018 (see Tay's email reply below)
-However, when i got my November bill for period (16/11/18 - 15/12/18), I was charged $180.68!
-Again when i got my December bill for period (16/12/18 - 15/01/19), I was charged $179.76!
-If my math is correct, I should only have been charged the:
1.one-time reactivation charge of $56.71
2.Whatever pro-rated amount under the previous plan up till 7 Nov 2018
3.And monthly recurring of $29.90 for Nov and Dec
Total: $116.51 + whatever pro-rated amount for the old plan
At most, my bills for Nov and Dec should not be beyond $150
But my bank statements were excessively charged a total of $360.44!
I demand an immediate explanation and a refund of the excess.
This is unscrupulous behavior on Starhub's part.
If i do not receive a reply within 24 hours, i'll proceed to report Starhub and Tay Yong Quan to CASETrust.
