Dear ms. Kathy,
Thanks for writing. I understand your concern about the charges on your father's
Directv account. I just want you to know that the your father agreed to sign up
For the service but then disconnected it within the agreement period so an early
Cancellation fee was billed.
Please know that directv significantly discounts the price of equipment and
Installation so we ask customers to agree to a programming commitment of 12-24
Months effective when they accept and activate service. I see that you activated
Equipment on 05/04/09 and at that time your father agreed to a 24 months of
Programming agreement. Since the account was cancelled the fee was charged.
For more information on programming agreements please visit our web site at
Moving forward, under the terms of the directv customer agreement, when the
Directv service is cancelled all outstanding charges are billed to the method of
Payment we currently have on file. The customer agreement is available online at
Directv.com/agreements. Please see the payment upon cancellation section for
We have found that the fees we have billed are correct and valid. Directv is
Unable to honor your credit request.
Thanks again for writing.
