Direct TV / dispute bill

1 3 Falcon Ct. West, United States Review updated:

I was charged a 400.00 disconnect fee when I cancelled my tv service with Direct tv. No one ever informed me when I was cancelling that I was under a contracted. I later found this charge to my account and called to ask why. They informed me that I had a NEW two year commitment because I received a new DVR when my old one was struck by lightening. I then informed them that NO ONE told me of this commitment and they then told me to send a letter the the bill dispute department and said there was no number to reach them.

I want EVERYONE to be aware of this fraud and be careful when signing with Directv. They will CHEAT you!!!

    i got the same charge today!! and i asked for an address for the dispute center and they said its on the back of my bill well guess what its not!! I would never recomend them to anyone, i didnt sign any contract, i didnt get any of my local chanels and they came to my house three times to fix it, my dvr never worked properly, and when i called to complain the lady accually swore at me! i would never refer them to any one i have a 400 bill which they took out of my account but im glad i have nothing to do with that awful company and service again, when i called to disconnect they wouldnt even disconnect my account they shuffled me around person to person, i talked to 10 different people i bet just to cancel, they must be hurten for buseness or something, i dont even know why i went through them in the first place when dish network has cheaper packages.

    I sent this to Direct TV e-mail

    Direct TV has deducted from my account $1, 095.56 for services and equipment.
    my husband called in July and said this will be the last month we will be using DTV. So we just last week received the boxes to return the equipment and now you have gone into our account and deducted that amount. I called this morning and talked to a Carms who put me on hold for a long time waiting on a supervisor than came back on posing as one and hung on me after I asked her for both the persons ID # I am not sure how legal this is I have never signed an agreement with DTV. this deduction is causing me to have several overdraft fees. This is bad business. you need to go to and check out all the complaints you have. This would be a good story for Ken Amaro in Jacksonville. I am not sure how legal an unsigned agreement is but I will look into this with my attorney.

    Directv deducted $614 from my account without authorization to do so. I tried to cancel my service with them but they swore I had signed a contract. Their explanation of a contract was the paper that I had signed when the service was installed. I asked for a copy of the paper that I had signed since the installer did not leave a copy with me, they said that they didn't have a copy of it and directed me to their website. I don't understand how such business is legal when there is no signed paperwork anywhere to back this up! I would strongly recommend that NO one uses this service! They are out to take any and all money they can from you! Their service is beyond unsatisfactory and their business ethic is far worse than any company I've ever worked with before!

    My complaint is we were moving. Directv wasn't going to move us unless we pay $200. So we cancelled their service. Told them do not take money from our account after this last payment. They "put" it in the notes and said that wont be a problem. Well very untrue. They took money left us with a balance of $0.00 in out account. Not once or twice but three times. Leaving no money for food or gas for the week!! Each time calling and telling them they have no authority to take money as it is now illegal to do so...I had to go to the bank to have them dispute this! So the only way to have them NOT take money is to change my bank info...REALLY???

    i was charged for 6 years for a box that I didn't even have in my possession, but was being charged for it.the box was still activated, but not in my home.when new ones were installed 2007, the installer kept one of the boxes in which never was installed, but I was paying for it.contacted a agent about this, and I was told that I was being charged for it for the 6 years and I wud receive a refund, called dtv back, but there is no information of it.I told the agent the devil is a damn lie today, u will not get over on me and think u are goin to get away with any means necessary, I will handle my business.I have been a customer for 14 years.they will not cheat me and get away with it

    I cancelled my service after two months because I was unable to get service. Was told that I could not cancel my service. They suspended my service for 6months. After 6months without my knowledge they began charging me. They sent me to collections saying I owed $400 for an early cancelation fee and $213.00 for service I never received. They are a rip off company and dishonest. I too was told there was no contact number and that I would have to goggle their dispute center. Disgusted!
