More Comcast Customers Write In, Report Name Changes of ‘Whore,’ ‘Dummy’
As if Comcast’s recent account name change to “asshole” wasn’t bad enough, there are new reports of more rude names like “whore,” “dummy,” and “Fakoe Boz.”
According to the travel website BoardingArea, which first broke the story this week of the earlier vulgar naming incident, more users have written in with their own reports of Comcast naming chicanery.
Comcast did not immediately respond to Ars’ request for comment. Previously, the company told Ricardo—the Spokane, Washington customer who was dubbed “asshole”—that it was sorry.
“We have apologized to our customer for this unacceptable situation and addressed it directly with the employee who will no longer be working on behalf of Comcast,” wrote Charlie Herrin, a company vice president, on a blog post on Thursday. “We’re also looking at a number of technical solutions that would prevent it from happening moving forward.”
In the new examples, a woman named Julie Swano told BoardingArea that her December 2014 bill was addressed to “Whore Julia Swano.”
