Accidental PPV Charge

I've been around

charge for pay per view
Hello I have a rogers bundle package with rogers.

This month I noticed a hefty charge of 59.99 on the bill and found out that it was a pay per view movie. I called customer service and explained to them , that it must have been an accidental press . BOth my husband and I are senior citizens and he may have accidently pressed the button as he has shaky fingers( early parkinson). He may have landed on the pay per view button while trying to manoeuvre and in panic trying to get out of "RENT ME" he may have pressed it again. Customer service refused to reverse the charge. I am very frustrated. If we had actually enjoyed the movie , I wouldn't mind paying for it. I even tried to explain to rogers customer servide " look , we are middle class family, we would never rent a movie for that much money , you can clearly see it was a mistake" Even then , they dismissed it. I find it horrible. We were advised to put a child proof on the tv, so it would not happen again. But they refused to refund the charge. It is a lot of money and I am extremely upset about it. We have been Rogers customers for years and years. Rogers is like a house hold name in the family. My kids use them. This experience has left me , very unsettled , frustrated and upset. I am reaching out here ( with the help of my daughter). I hope Rogers community will help get this money returned. It is like a robbery.

Thank you
