Georgia Natural Gas - Worst customer service ever; should change name to liars r us
Plan expired and I fell into a variable rate plan.OK - my bad; had family healthy and job issues going on at the time.
initiated a switch to scana on 2/1/15. GNG Sales rep called to retain my business on 2/16 just prior to the actual switch. He said I'd save money because the lower rate would go into effect immediately if I stayed. Scana would have started on 3/1, but was billed a variable rate of 1.059 until the next meter reading on 3/13/15.
This resulted in another $200+ bill. I was offered a $25 credit for a bill that was $100 more because I stayed with GNG.
I made a partial payment and sent several emails to customer service. I paid the current service amount for the next month. They cut off my service anyway.
I spent 2 days trying to get them to fix the situation to no avail. They offered another $25 + the $20 of late fees as credit. At this point I had no hot water for 2 days already. I asked to speak with a manager that could do something.
They gave a # for corporate which went to voice mail. Called cust service the next day and waited 15 min to get to a manager. She had someone from corporate call me back. At this point I had already filed a better business bureau complaint.
Eventually my call was returned. I thought I was talking to a manager. I later found out the rude woman was an analyst. I did not hear back by 3:45pm and called again.
She returned my call and insisted they didn't lie; the rate was changed immediately; it just doesn't take effect until the next month. she said they could bill me for the reconnect fee & put me on a payment plan for the disputed amount. REALLY!! after they cut off my service and lied to me.
At this point she admitted she was not a manager and told me one would contact me back, but it was likely to be Monday since it was already after 5pm. So no gas all weekend. I switched back to scana.
But will have to fight GNG on the termination fee.
