Just been on hold to an 0871 number for over 2 hours and........

At first i was 10th in the queue and then when i was down to next in the queue after over 2 hours i actually went back to 14th in the queue. How can they get away with this. It was to our local football club for tickets that they know are sought after and that the game will be a sell out so they conveniently disabled the facility to buy them online. I have emailed both them and our local paper as this is in my eyes is a way to get more money out of the fans. Just wanted to vent my anger.

Where is it that deals with complaints about being on hold with these type numbers

I have always used saynoto0870 for years but there was no alternative for this one.

at least with virgin media they've seen the errors of there ways now all we need to do is get rid of call centres
my pal just told me every time he gets an out of the uk chapie/lass he gets them to come out to a ficticious problem then when they turn up at his house(shed)lol he tells them that the call centre fixed it and he didn't request a call.
that will put up there costs and may put call centres in a bad light

The body who governs premium rate numbers is ICSTIS which has recently been renamed, website below where you can complain to them.

I suppose they figure that anybody stupid enough to remain waiting for that length of time is fair game.
#19
Bloody hell, that's over £12 for a call, that's out of order that you moved further away in the queue, worth a complaint.
#20
Thats disgusting.....reminds me of the times I used to phone southern water....

Get a complaint in, hopefully you might be able to get some form of compensation?

It was for tickets to a football match that is going to be sold out. We usually order them online but conveniently they have disabled the online ticket facility. Yes we were desperate for holding that long and realise it now but i shall complain and try to get something back. I suppose the thing that grieved me more was the fact that when we were eventually next to be answered in the queue we then went back to 14th. If we were answered and got the tickets i wouldn't have perhaps bothered but for it all to be for nothing in the end then i am mad about it.
#22
So you didn't even get the tickets in the end?

I would be seething!

Just spoken to scfc about this matter and they say that it says on their website that the ticket office is closed on sundays. It gives a long list of how to buy tickets and shows a picture of their Britannia Stadium ticket office and gives office opening hours and then its list how to buy online etc and then it says telephone tickets. It states no opening hours and also it answers and puts you 10th in the queue and then it goes down by sequence. It just goes to show how this is actually rigged to get more money from you. If it is closed then why did it answer and then put me in a queue. I really want something done about this. Any help appreciated.
