Why I do not find closure with YES termination of my account

Unlike other prepaid, YES continued charging monthly Rm30 after I had informed them last October. Now they could only confirm my account has been closed with no mention of any outstanding amount being written off. They used the word 'forfeit' which to my understanding relates more to any amount to my credit, not debit. The fact that they did not send any statements before and I had to check my account online, leaves me with this feeling of suspense with no real closure. Why can't they state specifically that whatever was in my account is considered written off? I think all those who have accounts with YES should check their balances with them, to prevent a shocking revelation of amounts owing by them (to YES).

I am disappointed because you fail to confirm in writing that whatever amount outstanding under my name has been cleared. This is troubling me because there was no paper statement before and I have to take your word for it. The word 'forfeit' is suitable for use when there is any credit in my account, not so-called outstanding amount as a result of your unilateral monthly charges. Your system is so different from other prepaid types where there are no monthly charges. How would I know whether my account and balance is still kept in your company's record and shown as a debtor for years to come? There is even a possibility that my account be used as though it is still active with monthly charges to prop up your company's sales revenue and debtors.

Please confirm to my satisfaction that my account is now closed and there is no outstanding balance.

I wish to know on what basis I have accumulated the outstanding amount, with Rm30 added each month since I notified about my intention to terminate my account in October. I signed up because of being told by the sales personnel in Gurney Plaza that I will be billed only for what I have used. By offering to waive the outstanding amount only if I sign for something else, without first replying to my earlier query is most disgusting. I would not like my name to appear on your list of debtors which might be blacklisted elsewhere later. Please answer my question on how I ended up with this outstanding amount even without using your service. I will complain to MCMC if I do not get a satisfactory reply from you.

I am in a similar situation. Somehow I felt cheated cos it is suppose to be prepaid. I was not aware of the minimum charges. But I want to cont using it. Do you think I should just pay the outstanding? Or close my account and make a new one?

I am not in a position to advise you on this. But I can remember YES offered to waive earlier outstanding amount (when I made clear my intention not to continue), when they offered a certain package. Perhaps you should try negotiating with YES on this.
