"Easier to bury him than sort this out!" Widow takes husband's ashes to T-Mobile, desperate to cancel contract

A grieving widow says burying her late husband was easier than trying to cancel his cell phone contract!

56-year-old Maria Raybould told The Telegraph she was threatened with baliffs by T-Mobile and ordered to pay a cancellation fee after her 57-year-old husband David died of cancer.

The Telegraph reports Maria Raybould resorted to taking her husband's ashes to the T-Mobile store -- but she says even then, they refused to cancel the contract.

"I took in everything I could! I've been up to the shop with the death certificate, with a letter from the crematorium, the funeral bills -- even his ashes!" Raybould told The Telegraph.

After a visit to the store that ended with Raybould having a panic attack outside the store, she was told everything would be taken care of.

The Telegraph reports days later, she received yet another letter from baliffs seeking payments on her husband's phone contract.

"How dare they put me and my sons through this. I wouldn't want anyone to go through what we have gone through. It was easier for us to bury him than to sort this out!" Raybould said.

T-Mobile, reached by the Telegraph for comment, has apologized -- blaming the mistake on a delayed automatic process.

In a statement, T-Mobile said: "We apologize to Mrs. Raybould for any distress caused at this difficult time. We can confirm that the account has been closed and the balance cleared."
