Late Payment Fees During COVID-19

Is it only ME that has the following problem or have others experienced this as well? Ok so for the past few months I kept hearing from Rogers that they wanted to do whatever they could to help ppl through this difficult time (COVID19)...anyhow, I have a credit limit of 500$ and I have never been over 400, in fact throughout this "difficult" time I have paid my bill on time and in full except for ONE month that I was unable to pay but I called customer service and made a payment arrangement and the following month I paid almost the entire bill off...and the ONLY Almost ready to change to Bell... reason I even let it go that one month was because I took Rogers at their WORD when they told me they wanted to "help me" throughout this blah blah blah.....anyhiw, ever since then of course, not only have I been charged a late fee EVERY month since (even though technically I was NEVER late because I had made a payment arrangemen ) but also, EVERY MONTH like clockwork I get Robocalls almost daily telling me I am late and must pay immediately or my service will be cut off, yet apparently I still have a credit limit of 500 and I have STILL NEVER allowed the bill to go over around 300!! For the last 3 months I have called and stayed on hold and spent literally HOURS every time having to explain this over and over and over to person after person who eventually placate me and assure me all is well and yet the next month it starts all over again...you know, it woukd slmosf be better if they did NOT extend me a 500 dollar credit limit because as it iz it is incredibly insulting to assure me I have this limit, yet month after month while I pay on time and only let my bill get to atound 200 bucks they STILL charge me a late fee each month and have their telemarketers call me daily to tell me if I don't clear up ...uh, what?! There really is NOTHING to clear up!! Screw it, I'm pretty much done, at least I'm not calling them anymore, it's freaking ridiculous,!!!

Re: Late Payment Fees During COVID-19

Hello Tony. Thank you very much for your reply and for your offer to look at my file in order to attempt to solve my customer service issue. Please let me know precisely what information you need from me...btw, I did try to pm you and I am sure that the process is not especially complicated, but for some reason I just cannot seem to figure it out
.....perhaps you could pm me first, and I can reply? In any case I should mention that I have a suspicion that part of the issue that a while ago I asked Rogers customer service to send me a replacement Spen, as the one that came with the phone simply did not work and in fact broke apart like the third or fourth time I took it out of the phone....this was particularly difficult for me to get satisfactory help with and I believe I had to escalate to a supervisor before finally after a good hour or so on the phone they agreed to replace it - lol, just my luck but a week or so later when I got it in the mail, no matter WHAT I tried (and believe me, I spent hours on YouTube trying to figure out what I
I might be doing wrong) I just could not get it to connect with Bluetooth and in addition to that, it did not even work well as a capacitive stylus! So I called Rogers back about this and at this point I was treated like I was some criminal trying to scam Rogers out of another stylus...I was told that in order to replace the stylus (again) I would have to return my PHONE to Rogers so they could ascertain whether the issue was with it or the stylus, an OBVIOUS technique intended to frustrate the customer into giving up - I mean, who is REALLY going to mail their $1000 smartphobe back and wait for weeks on end before (maybe) getting a replacement spen?? I saud as much and offered to mail the stylus back instead,along with the original one that had come with the phone, but tge conversation basically went downhill from there until eventually (and predictably) I became so frustrated that I hung up and ordered an over priced spen from Amazon. In fact, all told I have purchased 3 extra spens and can send u a pic of all 4 of them (including Rogers' useless replacement) which all sit unused on my desk, constant reminders of my idiocy because lets face it, purchasing an over priced smartphone because of the novelty of the spen is kinda ridiculous, given that I could have simply made one myself for nothing if I did not care about the bkuetooth functionality....

Ok ....I am ONLY telling you all this, NOT in order to attempt once more to get a free replacement spen (in fact, as soon as I finish this pm to you I am going to do what I should have done in the first place and send Samsung $30 for a replacement that at least I know will have a great probability of functioning as advertised), but to relay to you one more reason why my suspicion is that there are notes attached to my file that instruct whomever I reach when I call Rogers customer service, to be wary of anything I have tk say etc etc...I worked in customer service for many years and I worked in sales for over 20 years, 10 of which were in telemarketing, and I know how this works...and THIS history of my dealings with customer service, IMO, is most likely why, no matter what my credit limit is and no matter how many payments I make, I am charged a late fee EVERY month and I have to put up with robocalls threatening to cut ofc my service, starting literally 2 DAYS after I make a payment!


Honestly, I am mot even asking you to do anythingb for me- you are more than welcome to read my file and I will provide you with any info you request. In additoon, I know all your calls are recorded, I encourage you to please download them and listen to them all abd judge fir yourself - quite honestly, this is nothingmore than an opportunity for me to vent my frustration to someone, ANYONE who works for Rogers, without having to go through the insufferable process of pressing numbered buttons on my phone for 5 ir 6 dufferent choices abd then sitting on hold for 1/2 hour and then explaining all of this to a Rogers customer service agent and then being on hold once more as I am tranzferrd to a supervisor, after which I would have to once more explain the WHOLE thing again and somehow convince the person on the other end of the phone to overcome his or her natural bias against me (due to whatever negative notes I am certain have been attached to my file), in order to simply tell me "I am sorry, but unless you are willing to put your entire life on hold for a few weeks we cannot help you." (Which is essentially what I would have to do by mailing my smartphone back to Rogers - lets face it, the ability to call someone on the telephone is but one very small function of the incredibly powerful pocket computers we all walk around with every day)...
Okay - that is it!! I promise lol! I feel much better now, having gotten all that off my chest and thank you for actually spending the time to read it haha 😄 😀.....if you need any information at all from me just let me know, and please, feel free to deketemy original post - it is unfair of me after all, to bash tge entire company for my own small issues that, granted, I am at keast in part responsible for. This was sort of a cathartic experience for me, I have no expectations and I am not asking you to do anything...except maybe to look into why Rogers extends me a $500 credit limit, yet montb after month calls me almost daily to leave messages threatening to cut off my service unless my remaining total is paid in full immediately (which is never more than $400, and usually under $250)..

Thank you once again,

Sincerely,


Carl Cipriano
