What a nightmare Direct TV was for me. They were to be part of the AT&T pkg... and Direct at my location was the sub-contracted company for this pkg. I blame AT&T the same, as they are the company that was to offer and honor pkg price... but due to separate billing from Direct TV that NEVER hit my $99.00 plus tax- the package deal was for one year, while I pd different prices with the avg price charge for AT&T and Direct totaling over $150. In addition, they charged me for relocating out of state during my second year of service, and stated I had a two yr contract with them, NOT the one yr offer from the AT&T pkg contract.
Oh- I never rec'd my promo credit card either, like many others, for signing up for the AT&T pkg.
Lastly, they debited by card w/out permission, and I suppose they rec'd my credit acct number from a one time authorized pmt transaction. They did charge me for the cancel fee too.
I so hope- they close/out of biz, class action suits fly against them... and I pray for the energy to "fight them over their lack of ethics etc", as I am disabled... and in a position to have to "pick my battles daily".
I am glad to learn many are standing up... maybe the Atty General will get involved.
Maybe someone with start an easy to use, online petition... I would sign it.
My email to send site for petition, if one is started: PISKG@aol.com.
