Fatigué après six mois de bataille, Dr. Spadaro a perdu patience. « Depuis le mois de juin, j'ai passé des heures à écrire des courriels, des courriers ou à passer des coups de fil à Orange pour demander des explications. On m'a fait passer de plateforme téléphonique en plate-forme téléphonique, de service clientèle en service recouvrement. Personne chez Orange n'a été capable de m'apporter le moindre éclaircissement. Un véritable mur», indique l'intéressé qui ne s'est jamais rapproché d'aucune association de consommateur, «par manque de temps et aussi parce que je faisais confiance à mes interlocuteurs».
Fin de la semaine prochaine il tombe par hasard sur l'article sur Internet de l'Observateur du Valenciennois
At the end of last week he stumbled upon the article on the Observateur du Valenciennois internet site concerning the case of Eric Gernez. He then also threatened Orange with the press. "The result did not tardy", he continues. "A customer services representative and a debt collector immediately contacted me by email November 16. And immediately afterwards I received a credit for €136,529". A first credit having already been sent to him in June, Orange now considers the dossier as "definitively resolved".
However this resolution does not satisfy Jean Spadaro at all, who simply wishes that the bill be cancelled. "I have been a client with Orange for 17 years. I don't want to attack their image, but here, enough is enough. It's a question of principles", says the doctor, who highlights that "on forums, dozens of subscribers tell similar stories". Furthermore, the two credits do not reimburse him for all of the additional fees he has incurred. "The following months, Orange tried to debit the sum from my account, causing rejection fees from my bank and unpaid fees from the operator. Around €35 each time".
Thoroughly exasperated by the whole affair, Jean Spadaro is awaiting the end of his current contract with Orange on February 21, 2010. "I will cancel all of my subscriptions to Orange: 3G+ dongle, but also mobile telephone and internet", he promises. He has been a client with the operator since 1997.
Despite being contacted, France Télécom had not replied by the end of Tuesday evening.
