Morning all, just been charged £129 home improvement service. Engineer visited on 6th Sep because of a fault on my phone, said faults were outside and had to get line changed over to the exchange. Then he found a fault on i think the dpo box by our main entrance to the block. I asked will i incur any charges answer no!. He was then working at my master socket, i asked again will i incur a charge answer no. He was then running a new piece of wire from front door to master socket, i asked is it faulty answer no just a bit of noise on that piece of line, will i be charged answer no. By the way he arrived at 0810 and it was now about 1130. Said he had about 3 faults outside and that's what had taken so long, i asked any faults inside and will i incur any charges answer no!. So why have I been charged, hope you kind folks can give me some advice on how i can deal with this.
Ps. I think he finally finished about 1245
Hi Kieth, thanks for the reply, I can see what you're saying by that link you sent me but the engineer said it was not a fault just noise on the line and that faults were outside. So I take it this is a scam by BT and the engineer lied.

The moderators can look at the Field Technicians report, and see what was done, and whether the charge was justified. You will need to wait a while, but they do take personal ownership.
