I am rejecting this response because: Complaint: [redacted] I am rejecting this response because: attached is return mail scanned from December to JanuaryI moved from the old address in Chicago IL on February this yearI have the receipt from moving company The attached is the only postal mail I received from companyCompany has no right to suspend a service which it can't service and still try to collect moneyI didn't have a contract with CCThere are no contracts but Company thinks it can just do as it wants because this is America? This is the United States of AmericaFor anyone to hold hostage any property of another is illegal and I have a right to fight off anything or anyone that impedes my libertyIs CC broiled with a bunch of "just got off the boat" immigrants that don't understand this? This is called "free speech" in case CC needs instruction and not a racial remarkI am an immigrant but I understand fully the American cultureI'm an American Citizen and I am old enough to have gone around the block many times to know what this company is doing One would think that after having no service and my sending their invoices back to their offices Company would get the hint and just cut me offAnd then it thinks it can compel me to give it money for no service when my phone was cut off, locked and unable to dial out CC says times to contact meNot trueI would have sent everything backI keep records and have a journal of just about everything in my lifeAnd how can CC make phone calls to me when my cell phone was locked outCC can't prove that its agents responded to every message I left on its website, unless of course it can show us the responses to all my messagesI may have copies of some (print screen), but I don't have the time to search for them in my filesMy files explorer is very large I no longer have yahoo as an email providerI called Yahoo agents about the hacks in the emailsYahoo wanted to charge me $to cleanup the mail box and my computerI didn't buy that either Sincerely, [redacted]
