Customer calls in earlier this morning.

1. Every carrier has a strict policy of disconnecting service to any customer that makes threats of this nature.

2. This should be reported to the police.

Whether he was blowing off steam or not, he deserves what he gets for threatening you like that.

I second this. Your company policy may state that you cannot disconnect calls, but the death threat thing is always the loop hole.

P.S. Good luck. And keep us posted if this guy follows through with anything.

Well he didn't come in. Kind of let down lol I wanted to see him get a light slam. I am not in a call center though, so I only had one person to escalate to.

1. We called the police and filed a report (our company policy don't allow us to make a decision on that, you have to)

2. Our indirect account manager came in this morning to check on us which is cool.

3. Not only did they not cancel his account, they pretty much gave him what he wanted even though he was on a recorded call with care being abusive and threatening.

He said he might come in tonight, I kinda hope he does.
