Direct TV / scam-false advertisement

1 United States Review updated:

Direct tv is one of the biggest scam i have ever had the misfortune to encounter. Their advertisement is 29.99 or 34.99 a month. I specifically asked the representative before installation about whether or not there is a contract and was told no, it was going to be a month to month type of service and the monthly charge is 34.99 plus tax. I probably should have just cancelled when directv can't seem to list my phone number right on their order form because the people that came to install it tried 3 times to find where i live. The first bill i got, i am charged 67.47 not the 34.99 i was told over the phone. When i call to question it, i am told i need to call the rebate dept before they can give me the discount and it would take 6-8 weeks. This is bull ###. So i called them this is now 2 months later and i am still getting charged 67.47. The reps i had the misfortune of talking to were not at all helpful and then informed me that they have no record that i have a rebate in, i asked to speak to a supervisor and found he is the biggest ahole alive and has no business being a supervior or dealing with people in general his badge no is lc16142 and his name is chris. And the biggest scam of all. There is a 24 months lock to this service, big surprise they outright lied. They are charging $440 to cancel. They failed to advise me of these charges and that i will be tied to a contract. They provided no upfront information and the best they can do is "there is nothing i can do to change that". Biggest scam of all. I am very surprise they are still in business. Too late. Wish i knew.
