In a single case a buyer was compelled to attend for practically a fortnight earlier than they had been refunded.
After forking out practically $820 for a console, one buyer was shocked to find the telco had charged him one other $99.
“They are a giant telecommunication company here in New Zealand. You don’t expect such a thing,” buyer Harry stated.
After 11 days of calling and emailing he was lastly refunded.
He’s not alone, others have additionally been complaining about being overcharged.
Vodafone says some had been overcharged resulting from a technical situation.
“We absolutely apologise to customers that have experienced any issues around PlayStation 5 and our presales – we’re looking to remediate and deliver on those PS5s by the 15th of December,” Vodafone’s Carolyn Leuy says.
Some Vodafone clients thought they had been ordering consoles already in stock, not realising they’d have to attend for them to reach.
Nevertheless, Vodafone disagrees.
“It was a pre-order – that was clearly labelled on the email we sent out to customers as well as throughout the journey – but I think customers were in such a rush to get their hands on a PS5 that sometimes they didn’t read all the notifications,” a Vodafone spokesperson says.
Players will now need to be affected person as their consoles arrive.
