I've yet to find a service bot that was even in the slightest bit useful.

Emailing direct? Works like a charm. I've just finished an email session with a US company because a unit died inside it's two year warranty - a new one is on the way and (with luck and a following wind) will be here before Christmas. With a chatbot? I'd still be screaming at my screen in frustration as it dispenses more "solutions" to problems I don't have because it spotted a couple of keywords instead of reading the whole message history.
