my fido credit has been scammed. And fido will not do anything..

Soo I recently paid my bill.. and everything was fine.  Untill today when I see my bill shoot up to over 300$ because there is third party misc. Payments coming out to some random app I've never heard of from some random website that's foreign E.. spent the remaining credit I had left on my account now my phone is suspendd. I called fido and got the WORST customer service .. I was very happy with fido until now... Idk what to do. This seems like it will never be solved.. I have no history or subs or anything stating I made those purchases... Aswell over 700mins of calling?? Wth? I never call anyone and theirs random numbers calling me burning up 30--70mins without me even answering... And fido Would NOT do a thing about it.. I don't understand. I try to do something right and get kicked in the face.

Hello @paulisfreelol,

 

Third party charges are charges that come from another service. The fact that they appear on your bill is simply because when the transaction was processed, it can be chosen to be placed on your bill instead of paying for it immediately with a credit card or another method of payment. 

 

If the product was delivered or not to you is beyond our control since we're only presenting the charge to you. This also goes if you or someone else requested the transaction. I would strongly recommended getting in contact with Bango, which seems to be the provider of this service.

 

Hope this helps.

Hey @paulisfree , 

 

Welcome to the Community! 

 

Unexpected bills are never fun, we get that! Sorry to hear that your experience reaching out to us wasn't pleasant, It's not how we want things to go !

 

In order to help, can you clarify what you mean by a third party misc ? What shows on your bill? 

 

Were the charges for going over your minutes or for calls made through an App?

 

We'd need a little more details and we'll do our best to help!

and it doesnt make sense because bango is a foreign monetizing site. as i looked it up yesterday while on the phone with fido support and google being the manufacturer responded to me immediatly . bango has not.

i called fido support again today. and the same thing. they had No clue what they were doing Sad so sorry to say it but you have the wrong people working customer service.  not all of you! but it seems the majority is just uneducated about the policys because i strictly told them i did not pay for these things, and my phone is cut off right now. after i paid 114$ on the 5th. i should have my unlimited  calling and texting according to your policy. but i basically paid for nothing
