Scam ! Money taken without any service

Hathway is a scam !!
Their sales team is always in a hurry to extract money from customers. However, when it comes to service, it's the worst service provider in the country.

It took one week for them to do the cabling after I paid for a new connection (this too after multiple calls to customer care).
It doesn't end there ...their operational issues caused another week delay to activate the internet connection.

Post activation, speeds are extremely slow and nowhere close to what is promised . No refunds given and service support team is exceptionally useless , unhelpful and incompetent

Harassment

I had used Hathway 3years back post which I had closed it because I had shifted to a new address. I had all my bills paid and connection closed. I had even submitted the modem for which I have their receipt. Suddenly after so many years, few weeks back I received a call claiming from Delhi court that someone has filed a case against my name for fraud and non-payment. I came to know that the ID for which I had closed my connection years back, there is pending amount of approx 5.5k. There was no intimation through mail or phone after I closed my connection, and suddenly after years these people thought that let's put some random amount in this account name and take money. Whoever is reading this I would strongly recommend DO NOT BUY HATHWAY connection, and even if you do keep a copy of every bill that you are paying. What I have faced, I know 2 other people who has faced the same issue. When I asked customer care they could not give me any proof or substantial evidence of pending amount. Hathway is doing major fraud and harassing common people to extort money.

hathway harassment

Dear sir/madam,
I took hathway connection 2 years ago.After their pathetic service I removed the connection and as it was prepaid connection there is no question of bill payment after usage.But from 2 days I am getting calls claiming they are from Delhi high court and saying you haven't paid the outstanding amount of 6887 rs.which is fake.I even talked to customer service provider named Rajendra he said there is no need to pay if you haven't used.
I request you to please take stern action against them.Worst company I ever saw.

Extortion

I am being harassed by hathway almost on a daily basis. I have been their customer for around 3 years. A year ago I moved residences and their sales staff asked me to get a new connection instead of moving the old connection and said he will do it for me. A year since that I am being pressurised to pay 11k+ for the old connection where not a single mb of data has been used!

Mental harassment and not good technician suggestions

I had shifted my Hathway connection. Then after using it at my new place with same account no. After some time,I did not recharge it 3-4 months,when I Asked for recharge,technician told me this modem has outdated and you have to install new modem then I had to purchase new modem and router with same account no. At that tym,I asked technician what about modem,should I return u,then he told no need to return and I took. after that Hathway issued the new account nos. Of 10 digits.so my account no. Turned into 1109938124.i used prepaid internet scheme and I closed Hathway account and return the new modem and router.issue was closed. Now., I have got call from delhi court saying a case file on you and approx 10236 rs bill is pending on you. She told me someone from pune filed the case on me on account no. 1109587756 and address given was my first residential address which I was left and shifted at Another quarter. At new quarter, I have closed old one and purchase new one.in this case,there is a fault of company nit mine.how the registered a case on me.after all, I went to the office,their employee told me no need to pay approx 10236,but u have to submit old modem or 2000 rs if lost. I questioned when their technician told me no need to submit modem then why this is procedure they follow.after many months,modem was wasted for me hence I threw modem.after collapse of many months,they put back this issue to me.after that I paid 2000 rs,they told me they gave me NOC in 10-15 minutes.,but they didn't till date.
Hathway doing fraud
No technician gives you right advice
Customer care executives gives wrong commitments
Don't use hathway,I totally recommended

Lodging request for disconnection

No wonder we get to see the worst reviews on Hathway and specially everyone from Customer Care to Executive has an unprofessional attitude, where we only get to see reluctance, lies and not even sure how do they manage to work as a company. And I'm sure this would definitely be my last time leveraging nonsense from hathway.

Amount payment and Register case on Me

I am shifted to my new house in October 2017 and I personally call to customer support team to close my account permanently, because hathway service is not available to my new location.

Till today's date my account was closed and no emails or SMS is sent to me that you have to pay 10781 RS.

2 Days before I received call from person and saying that Hathway company has register case on you because of 10781 amount dues. They registered case on me as Fraud and you will fine a Rs of 30000 and 3 months jail.

How hathway will charge if my connection is closed..?
Hathway must have all data how much customer have used and where they have used the internet data..?

And before registering case in court why they are not calling to customer ?
Hathway should call to customer and should say that "we are registering case on you because of XYZ reason "

At least customer will do the next step or will ask for Help with someone.

Please tell me What should I do in this situation...I really need help

Thank you in Advance.

Hathway internet not working

A/c no : 1149844928

From 5th of July, the internet service was down. And the response was very poor while we are raising the complaints. The executive was keep on saying the same answer that with in 24 hours the problem will be resolved, but its a week the internet was down. The other time when I called the customer care, they are saying that the entire area was down and the total system up gradation was going the area. I don't understand why these people are shutting down the old system with out establishing the new optical fibre network.

Fraud Calls from Hathway for extortion

I used Hathway connection from second half of March 2016 to second half of April 2016, that is, for around a month. Despite completion of all the formalities and payment, my connection was not activated. I called up several times each day for around a week but only response from them was "someone will look into this". I finally called their head office and next day connection was activated. But the connectivity was very poor with frequent interruptions. As I was relocating next month, and also I was frustrated with the service from Hathway, I decided to terminate the connection. I called them up and requested termination. They said someone would come next day and collect the modem. I also dropped them a mail regarding the same. No one came. After a few days, now that I had shifted to another location, I received a call saying someone is coming to pick the modem. I gave him new address but no one came. This happened several times but no one ever came to pick the modem. I received my bill for the month of disconnection. Every month, i kept receiving mails and bills for payment even after disconnection. I told them not to call me again as I had paid what was due and that I won't pay for the service that I have not used.
Today on 9th July 2018 I received a call from a lady, her number being 9910792390. She claimed to be from Investigation Dept. of Karkardooma court and said a case has been filed against me, the case number starting with NW. She gave me another number 9278201084 of some adv Rakesh Sharma and asked to me contact him for knowing the details and then to call her back, so that she can keep my file on hold. I called up the so-called advocate and he explained me that Hathway has filed a case under sec 420 IPC for fraud and that amount of Rs. 4000 is due on me. He asked if I want to go for out of court settlement by making the payment or to proceed with the legal proceedings by attending the court. I said I want out of court settlement. He said the call is being recorded and I cannot go back on my words. He asked me to pay the amount on the website and provide him the transaction number, after which he would send me an NOC via mail. I would have to produce the NOC at Hathway office along with the request for disconnection mail I had sent 2 years back and would get my money refunded. I agreed.
All this while I had a feeling that this is fraud, reason being, I myself am a lawyer. No case in district courts in India starts with NW. He could not tell me the year of institution of case. When asked repeatedly, he said 2015. When I pointed out that this means company filed a case on me even before I took the connection he said it was Jan 2016. When I said I took the connection in March, he said it was 2018. I asked him in which division of Karkardooma court was the case instituted, he had no answer. Also, no legal notice was served upon me, hence the service of notice is not valid.
He called me back after 1 hour, but this time it was the lady calling from the advocate's number. I asked her to contact my lawyer upon which she disconnected the call.

Worst and ridiculous customer care

I am using hathway broadband(Bangalore, Arekere), Hathway representative called me and told that If I recharge for 3 months I will be eligible to get one more month internet service for free of cost. So I recharged the account with offer of 3+1 month. But after 3 Months they had disconnected my connection. When I called the customer care they said that I need to renew my account to continue the service. I called the customer care and explained in detail and the representative had taken the request to reactivate the account. But its been 5 days the account not yet activated. I am calling them every day but still they are saying the technical team is working on the request.
Account Number: 1108021759
Service request Number: 03072018C06555

Hathway broadband

Hi, i got a call from this no. ‭+91 78349 52000‬ Some days before that some case has filed against me in maharashtra court which was forwarded to delhi court by some private company situated in my city. I searched on google this no. and found on forum that this call was fake. So i didnt respond to that. Today(28-6-2018) i got a call from a person name hemant saxena ‭+91 99990 36558‬. He yelled at me first. Then he said im gonna forward your case in delhi high court given by hathway within one hour if you dont pay the bill. So i called at my regional hathway office. The lady from office said, yes from hathway delhi, cases are being filed. I asked hear why any warning wasnt given. She said you have to come in office we have special dept for that. I went to office and asked her where is legal dept. she directed me towards payment counter and said he handles this. And i asked him why wasnt i informed and that mf says nothing and askes me the hathway acc no. for payment. I knew they all were bluffing some kind of mili bhagat. But i had no time to prove their bluffing as i was given only 1 hour to pay. I called that hemant saxena again. He said dont waste my time and pay money otherwise im forwarding the case to delhi high court within half hour. I had no choice but pay the amount. And he specifically mentioned to pay online. I paid on hathway office instead and asked to terminate my connection permanently. I took a receipt of disconnection and gave receipt no. To the saxena person. And he said thankyou in return. Why would a person from high court say thankyou like i paid him instead of hathway. Some kind of big sham by hathway. I also found out that hathway got a disconnection notice from media cast early this year. I took my connection in 2015 and i stopped using after 2016. During that period they charged me extra but i had proper calculations and explained them that you charged me extra so they reduced some 500-800 rs. later i found out that they still charged some amount extra. Most of the hathway workers belong to one particular community. Name i cant put here. I wished i could have went to mear by lawyer when i got the first call some days before. If this happens to anyone out there please consult to your family lawyer before acting anything. Thanks

Cheats calling me claiming it is Delhi court

Hi,
I need help as i would like to settle this once and for all. I would also like the legal authorities to take action against hathway.
I was a hathway user 16 months back. I was happy with Hathway and requested them to relocate my connection.
Hathway - known for its pathetic customer service, took almost 3-4 days to just tell me that it could not happen till now but will be done in sometime. I waited for 7 days after which I decided to get rid of hathway and requested them to terminate the connection. They hesitated first but then agreed to disconnect. They then started chasing me for the modem. I submitted the router to their office near Gadital (pune). The guy himself collected it. They still kept calling me to for the modem. I told all of them that I have already submitted it.
I then got a call around 10 days back from a lady who could not speak proper Hindi claiming she is from Delhi court and that there is a fee of 6000 rs that i need to pay. She then gave me an advocates number and asked me to call that advocate (who was another cheater). He also threatened me that he has all my Adhar details and it will be linked to my adhaar. I received one more call today and requested the lady not to call me again. She then threatened that the call is getting recorded and will forward it god knows who.
I did contact Maharashtra Police who have requested me to meet them and tell them about this.
My connection was terminated in March 2017 and it was a prepaid connection. When my connection was prepaid, how could the bill get generated even if I did not cancel my plan. This is surely a lie. Plus the email that I sent to them are still with me which I can show.
Can someone please please help??

Mental harassment and extortion

I have been receiving calls continuously since 16th June 2018 from someone claiming to be from the Delhi Consumer Court legal dept stating that there has been a case registered by Hathway against me because I have not paid some outstanding bill when I had disconnected the service in Aug 2015 as I was leaving the city . Now they call me after 3 years and say that the outstanding bill amounts to Rs 12000. They claim to have sent notices to my address while they clearly were informed that I would be moving out of that address. I don't understand why they never contacted me on my phone when they clearly have my number .
They forced me to pay this ridiculously exorbitant sum in a couple of hours and threatened to move the file forward if I failed to do so and even mentioned that my Aadhar card would be linked to this case thereby causing problems for me in future . They are not even ready to share an itemised bill with me . I even asked them to check their call records but they denied saying that since it is so old they not have the logs stored . I paid this sum because they said they would withdraw the case if I did it .
The next day I got a call from someone claiming to be from the high court saying that I need to pay a penalty fee of Rs 5000 as the case had already reached them before I made the payment . I checked that number later and found it was a SPAM number . I have written to Hathway but they haven't replied to my email yet . I have been subjected to this mental harassment continuously for the past days that I will be filing a case of mental harassment,extortion and threat against this company .
I have read 2 more similar complaints against them online and these fraudulent people and thugs need to taught a lesson.
