Regina:  Hello, this is Horizon. My name is Regina. How may I help you today?

Bob:  I’m calling to dispute my bill. There’s a billing error.

Regina:  Let me take a look at your statement. Your last bill was $650 and it is past due.

Bob:  It’s past due because this is the third time I’ve called to report the problem, but my bill still hasn’t been corrected. My bill is normally $65 a month.

Regina:  I’m looking at your account and I don't see a record of any previous calls about this problem.

Bob:  I called last week and the week before. Look, I just want to get this sorted out so I can pay my bill before my service is disconnected.

Regina:  I understand. Your bill may reflect changes you’ve made to your usage plan, such as upgrading to a more expensive plan.

Bob:  I’ve made no changes to my usage plan. I’ve had the same plan for eight months.

Regina:  Your bill may also reflect overage charges if you went over your allotted minutes or data.

Bob:  I haven’t gone over my limit. Can my case be escalated so that I can speak with a supervisor?

Regina:  Certainly, sir.  Let me have a supervisor call you back when she’s available.

Bob:  Will that be today?

Regina:  I can’t tell you that, sir.

Bob:  I just hope she calls me back before my service is [call ends].
