Direct TV — lairs, scams, bait n switch, early cancel fee, etc...
So I currently have Comcast and wanted to see whats so good about direct tv so my comcast is not a contract so I can cancel anytime, I called direct TV and told them I currently have comcast cable and I just wanted to try out Direct TV and see a side by side and the agent told me thats not a problem at all. You have 30 days trial and if you do not like it, you won't be responsible for the installation nor the contract agreement... great, lets order it and let me try it out. I also DOUBLE checked to make sure there is no early term fee or anything like that and he said 30 days free trial.
Okay so we ordered it, tested it didn't like it compared to our comcast and called to cancel... this is when EVERYTHING went bad with direct TV. They said there is no 30 day free trial. I tried to contact the same sales person to help but no luck. I finally got a supervisor who was a human being and understood (cuz why would ANYONE in their right mind order a direct tv contract when they already have comcast cable? makes no sense) and credited my account back for the $460 charge or early termination... Well, it shows up on my direct tv account but they never gave it back. They said "IT WAS A VALID EARLY TERMINATION FEE" and will not be giving me back $460.. WTF thats crazy. I don't have $460 sitting under my couch to spare for you... I have to pay bills!!!
So I kept calling and talking to supervisors, talked to the presidents cabinet, and still no luck... I just sent a email to Chase Carey... I don't know if that will work or not. I also used my debt card to pay so I won't be able to use my credit card company to help me dispute this charge.
ANY HELP? In this economy I wouldn't want to lose $460 for nothing!!!
DAMN YOU DIRECT TV, why did you lie, to me. Why did you do a bait n switch, your company is HORRIBLE!!!
