Direct Tv / illegal billing practices and fees

United States Review updated:

I had Direct TV since 2001. They charged me a
deposit of $250 back then. Yesterday I called to cancel Direct TV. They
said I'd be charged a cancellation fee, but I only had a 2 year contract
in 2001. Also, I said I wanted my $250 Deposit back.
They said no, it went towards equipment. They said I have to send in my
equipment, I said not until I get my $250 back. They said they would
withdrawal from my bank then. I said I don't allow you to do that, but
they said they can. How can they get way with this? Who can I call to get refunded and make them do the Right being honest up front.

    Direct TV recently changed their terms of service agreement. I wrote them that I reject the new terms of service. After lengthy conversations they allowed me to cancel their service but believe I am still liable for the equipment lease. I contend that since this equipment is only usable with their service, I can not longer be held to that contact. Many people are or can be effected by this.
