A T & T should top this list.  The stunts that they pull on military members and their families is outrageous.  They still charge for a suspended phone line if a military member is deployed just to keep the text messaging feature. 

 

They have what's called an (All-or-Nothing Plan) either you keep the phone and all of the features if deployed or you lose the ability to communicate with family the only way that you can.

 

What a scam.  I filed a complaint with the BBB just to let them know that A T&T clearly makes a bundle on the backs of the military members that serve this country, veterans and their families.

I'll cast my vote for worst company in America for Comcast Internet service.  Every single night of the week, without exception, between midnight and 4 A.M., my internet service is completely dysfunctional.  When I call up, I'm told to push half a different buttons, if I get through at all, and then I get somebody from India on the line who can hardly speak English, and they tell me how sorry they are  that I'm having trouble.

Where's Bank of America?  It's always top of the list on worst customer service, never mind the way it cheats its customers and kicks out homeowners.

After 15 years of paying Dish about $130 per month, I decided to leave them for a bare-bones cable plus Netflix.  I had decided that if that didn't work, I would again sign up with Dish. (and get some of those goodies that they give new customers but never bother to give old reliable customers.)  You would have thought I was leaving the Mafia.  I got numerous phone calls offering me big deals if only I would stay with them.  They offered me a chance to place my subscription on "hold".  They didn't tell me that it would cost me for that "feature". 

After all that, I would rather have my fingernails pulled out than go with them again.  Beware.  I don't know how the other big satelite provider works, but I hope it's better than Dish.

How about BoA and Comcast. I was sent a bill of more then $800 for the services that were cancelled 6 months ago. I had to deal with not only their reps but also collection agency and honestly it was alot easier to deal with the collection agency then the comcast reps because all they cared about was to get the payment asap and not trying to find the error in the system or fix the issue.

Never again Comcast. I rather live without any tv channals then get comcast.

I had a Tmobile cell phone for years.  Then friends offered to put me on their friends and family plan which was much cheaper.  So.... I cancelled Tmobile on the phone and paid the final bill up to the minute using my debit card.  The Tmobile rep assured me I was paid up and done.  Well, wouldn't ya know, I got a bill for $50.00 the following month showing no calls.  Next thing ya know, a collection agency was after me.  I just couldn't believe it.

Verizon is the worst I've ever had to deal with. They expect you to pay for their screw ups and never own up to it. They screwed me on my DSL service for a year and never fixed their mistake. They insisted I owed them and I refused to pay so they messed up my credit. I was so pissed of that when my wireless contract was up I cancelled my service and went with ATT. I'll never use them for anything again. I'll talk into a soup can with a string before I give those ****s another cent. F 'em.

Monsanto Industries should have been on this list.  Poisoning food supplies, hated world-wide, banned in more and more countries (except ours, of course), creator of Frankenfish and the Attack of (Real) Killer Tomatoes.  Food that kills, and they say they're not responsible for your safety, just selling a product.

T-Mobile has some of the worst customer service in cell phone history.  You call for assistance and get someone overseas; you click 1 for English and you get a rep in India who you can't understand.  If I push 1 for english I should get someone in the US that I can understand.  After being stuck in contract for 9 years and getting no where with better service; 45 miles north of home no service for another 100 miles then going east no service 25 miles out for about 100 miles.  T-Mobiles phone reps make a mistake and we pay for it and can't get refunded.  And when you go into their sales offices they don't know how to address phone problems and delete all your contacts, photo's etc due to their inept training.  I can change now, but now they passed a law that we can't unlock our phones!  I paid $250 for a phone that now that it is mine and I am no longer is a contract and not allowed to use with another carrier.  I am not a Doctor, so I will just go without a cell phone...so will my wife and children.

[BRIEFING.COM] The stock market finished the Wednesday session on a modestly lower note, but it is worth mentioning today's retreat took place after six consecutive gains. The Dow Jones Industrial Average (-0.1%) and S&P 500 (-0.2%) settled not far below their flat lines, while the Nasdaq Composite (-0.8%) lagged throughout the session.

Equity indices started the day in the red, with the Nasdaq showing early weakness as large cap tech names and biotechnology weighed. The technology ... More
