Send Nothing or Else!

Have you ever received a disconnect notice for owing a balance of $0.00? Rich and Alisa got one from Comcast. They're not quite sure how best to resolve the problem. The entire letter is posted at Consumerist. Commenters suggested sending a check for $0.00, or sending a check for a few cents and then demanding a refund. Link -via NYC Educator

Well it's not exactly like this, but a couple months ago, my husband got a bill for $800 from Alltel.... a service he had canceled YEARS before. The 800 was for back payment from when he canceled until when he got the bill.

@Donovan -

I had the same experience, a negative bill from MCI that for whatever reason managed to become a postive. So I ended up having a credit of $40, to owing $40. When I complained, they refunded me $40! Then I had to explain in great length why they still owe me another $40 ...

I am in the middle of a similar thing, Rogers is threatening to cut off a cell phone I don't have anymore, for a bill of -23.08... someone called me and said that I needed to pay the bill, I said I would be happy to, how much was it... knowing that it was negative... she laughed... but then a month later I got another past due notice.
