Direct TV / deceptive business practice

1 Milwaukee, WI, United States

DirecTV has secured a toll-free number [protected]) that is almost the same as the customer service number of its competitor, Dish Network [protected]). If you mistakenly dial the "888" version thinking you're calling the Dish Network's customer service line, you get a DirecTV marketing creep who hastily mis-pronounces his response, and asks for your phone number, address and length of time you've had your satellite dish. You're then "turfed" to a recording that tells you if you can't resolve your issue with Dish Network, DirecTV would like to have your business.

Obviously a scam to collect names and addresses for "marketing" purposes. If this is an example of how DirecTV operates, they're at best deceptive, fraudulent and duplicitous, and in fact, in my opinion, are borderline criminals. "Trust is the gold dust of the 21st century." These buffoons just don't get it.
