Detroit, MI: (Jul-24-07) In a recent settlement, Cable television provider Comcast has agreed to send refunds, which could amount to $2 million, to about 200,000 Detroit area customers who were allegedly double-billed for a monthly maintenance charge for up to seven years. The most anyone could receive as a credit on their bill or a refund is just over $80. The refunds will settle a federal class action lawsuit brought on digital cable subscribers who also were charged 99 cents a month for cable guard service. Philadelphia-based Comcast, which has admitted no wrongdoing in agreeing to the proposed settlement, is the nation's largest cable operator with 24.2 million cable customers and 12.1 million high-speed Internet customers. Sources claim that digital cable customers in Michigan's 313 and 248 area codes were affected most by the double-billing. [DETROIT NEWS: DOUBLE BILLING]

Constant harrasment phone calls, damages to my credit report, disconnected my current service which my business website is hosted from when I refused to pay their erroneous bill. Moved to a new residence, paid the old moving balance in full. They continued to bill me for 3 months after they picked up their equipment. I have contacted them 6 times, 2 in writing and they admit its wrong in writing but are still sending me to collections.
