OK heres a brief run down before I get started.
My gf went to france for 40 days, so while she was gone we upgraded her pre-paid account to a TEMPORARY/CASUAL account for just those 40 days. We accepted the $10 per month joining fee, as we only needed it for 2 months.
We also had to put down a $300 deposit, which was fair enough, so if she didn't spend it all we woudl recieve a cheque in the mail for the unused amount.
All was fine untill we recieved the bill when she got back. $293 was the first bill! Now, if this wasn't bad enough, we looked at the bill to find that the total amount of her calls (calling out) was $246. So, for me to call her while she was over there I had to buy $15 phone cards, which last for a whole 20mins! We look at the bill again and she has been charged just for picking up the phone! What kind of crap is that!
Now to top it off, we are a week late in paying it, our fault yes, and we are ok with that. BUT...yesterday we recieved more mail from telstra saying that we owe them on extra $187. There is no explaination other than under the pretext of "new charges".
Does anyone know what is going on? Im fuming about this and want to get all the ammo I can before walking into the telstra shop. So the the grand total for 40 days of a "temporary" account has come to $481!
NOT HAPPY JAN!! anyone got any advice?
