I was informed by SMS that I was charged for 2GB extra data block for billing period when I hadn't exceeded my included usage limits. WHY?

I also got two SMS messages with the same thing a couple of days ago - firstly saying my data was barred as I had insufficient prepaid balance, then another message half an hour later saying I had been charged for 2Gb extra data.  I checked my data usage which was not anywhere my limit.

 

I have just called TPG who said this was a known system 'glitch' and that if I stayed on the line they would raise a request to get my $10 refunded. 

 

As I work in IT, I quite understand that system glitches happen from time to time.  What I am not happy about here is why the onus was on me to spend half an hour out of my work day calling TPG to request a refund.  If this was a known system issue, why was I not sent a follow-up message to apologise, say a mistake had been made, to please ignore the SMS messages and that I didn't need to do anything and I would be refunded?
