My daughter was on the Xbox One playing a demo of "Thief". She wanted to see what it would cost to buy the full game. She clicked to go to the store, but it was lagging so she clicked again twice. When it finally went to the store, it started downloading the game. She DID NOT see or acknowledge the confirmation, could not stop the process, and called me. I unplugged the console hoping that would stop the download, but I already got a confirmation email.
I chatted online with the "ambassador". He said that 1. my daughter was probably lying, 2. this was almost impossible, 3. I need to deal with my daughter, 4. just going to the Xbox store meant that she intended to buy the game, 4. even if someone broke into my house and downloaded a game on my console there was nothing anybody could do. NO REFUNDS ever, under any circumstances.
My biggest issue with this incident was the way the "ambassador" dealt with me. Calling my daughter a liar was very bad, but treating me like a completely insignificant, worthless, even foolish complainer really did it. I asked to speak to someone who would treat me as a PERSON, but was told that nobody would be able to help me.
Do these "ambassadors" represent the company? Do they have any concern what-so-ever for customers or their satisfaction? Are they the only point of contact?
I immediately removed my billing information from my Xbox account and will never purchase anything again from Xbox. I am also thinking of not using any Microsoft product ever in the future. I am amazed that Bill Gates got where he did today treating his customers with such disdain.
