A man said that he was fired from his job after calling Comcast to complain about his bill.

The man said that Comcast contacted his employer and got him fired.

Conal O’Rourke of Oakland, California, complained to Comcast after he was billed for services he did not really have.

Following his complaint, the company promised him additional TV channels, but instead, he was sent a variety of equipment that he did not want.

Conal complained again after he was billed $1,820 for hardware.

Conal, who works for a large accounting firm, drew a spreadsheet, showing each charge that he had received from Comcast, and sent it to the company.

Comcast apparently refused to reverse the charges. The man threatened to get the authorities to investigate the company. In return, Comcast contacted the employer of Conal.

Shortly after that call, Conal was dismissed from his job.
