BT Basic debacle - still being charged the full rate after several months!

Hi

Back in October 2020 I signed up a disabled friend (in receipt of universal credit) to BT Basic.

In November I returned the completed BT Basic application form.

Unfortunately, the application was not processed and my friend was then being charged the full monthly rate which he cannot afford. A huge shock when you are on a very low income expecting to pay around £10 a month and they take £30+.

There was no attempt by BT to contact my friend to inform him of any problems with his application.

I contacted BT to query this but of course they would not/could not discuss my friends account with me.

My friend got in touch with BT to query the charge and they said they had not received his completed form.

I made a copy of the completed form before posting it and offered to re-send it but they told him he would have to reapply.

They sent a new form, the completed form was returned over 2 months ago but they are still charging him the full rate.

My friend called BT again to complain and they paid him a good will gesture of £20 and promises that the full amounts paid to date will either be refunded or credited back to his BT account.

My friend is unwell with a heart condition and cannot deal with stress very well. Being overcharged every month is incredibly stressful.

Can anyone here please put me in touch with a supervisor at BT to sort this out.

Thank you very much.

B R
