Satellite Sales / Dishonest fraudulent advertising phishing Internet
Recently, I received an ad from these folks (www.SatelliteSales.com) offering "Free 4-room system installed....$19.99 for over 80 channels...Free Dual-DVR upgrade... Free Showtime (for 3 months)..."
I called, but was told that my credit "was not approved" and I must pay a large deposit for the four free rooms.
Then they offered to check someone else's credit - anyone else's credit. On a hunch, I gave them my mother's info. She has a Platinum Amex card, with a perfect credit rating and a limit so high we have never found it. Her credit was not approved either.
I believe - but I can't prove it - that they may be phishing for credit card numbers.
Although I did NOT order the service, these people charged my card $149 and sent a guy over this morning to install ONE room. When I called to inquire, I was offered more rooms if I gave them a bigger deposit.
I asked them to revers the charges immediately, and they told me it would take 10 days.
