BT have charged me extra money because of their own mistakes

Has anyone else had this problem??!!

 

So I went on my online banking and i saw I was being charged twice a month - £16 at the beginning and £27 at the end of the month - I phoned BT and expressed my concerns - a lovely lady in the billing department dealt with my call and explained that I had 2 accounts - one for a BT customer and one for BT sport.

 

I explained that at the start of the year I was prompted by BT to become a full customer as I was with sky and was only a BT Sport customer.  I agreed and the salesman said he would cancel the BT Sports bill as this would become free as a full customer.  After a couple minutes, the lady found the 2nd account and said she would merge them for me and I would have to call back for a refund and to set up a new direct debit.

 

I checked my account and it says I owe BT £107 so naturally i phoned up and explained the situation and the man, it wasn't his fault and I was patient with him, couldn't find any note of another account or anything and that there was no proof I'd ever had a second account or that I'd even paid for my BT Inifinity even though I've been with BT for years .... so therefore next month I'm paying for a 2nd BT infinity activation fee so that's £65 (2 payments) gone and I was also told because I can't find the other account number that I can't be refunded for the extra money (£16 a month).  I even have an email in february stating I paid the activation fee but because the billing department do not have an email address, I cannot forward the email on to show proof.

 

I've been with BT since 2013 and feel I've been a loyal customer and now I feel seriously screwed over - It's not the money that's important - it's the principal of it, what an utter slap in the face.

 

Sorry for the wall of text, I just feel phoning BT doesn't work.  The only thing I accept fault for is that I never checked my online banking sooner
