Wireless Billing Responsibility re: Death in the Family … Count-Down of Silly Rules from the BBC2011 Contest – #2
When I worked for a wireless company years ago they had a rule that stated, “If a subscriber requests to modify the billing responsibility for their account, they must perform the Change of Responsible Persons Submission (CORPS)”.
Unfortunately the CORPS term was applied to the customer services scripts within the call center. This wasn’t an issue until a family member called to report a death and their need to retain the wireless account. The customer services agent would tell the caller that prior to modifying account info, the caller would first need to submit a CORPS.
