resolved to the customer's satisfaction
Me and my wife moved last month to Colorado on a PCS move for the army and we notified Direct TV that we would be moving and that service needed to be suspended til we arrived in Colorasdo and found a new place. We were in transit in kansas city driving from kentucky when we got a unpleasent suprise, Direct TV charged 1100 Dollars to our debit card for cancalation and equipment fees, At this point leaving us 100 dollars negitive in the bank and stranded till i was able to get money from our parents. Once we contacted them about this they explained that we never contacted them even after we gave them the name and number of the person we spoke with about the move almost a month before. Then they tell us it will be 6-8 weeks to return the money to our account. Well after my wife spoke to the attentdents supervisor and the supervisors supervisor we got told we would have the money back in 72 hours. Well this was on 26 April 09 and it is now 06 May 09 and needless to say we havent seen our money yet. I am just upset at this company for there practices and the fact i never gave them promission to with draw money from my account and the fact that they used the card i had paid my last bill is even more disturbing. I never had a complant with Direct TV up to this point and even sent my friends to them and had moved before and had no issues, but after my last 2 weeks and the issues i have had i will never recommend or use them my self again. You do what the company tells you to do when you relocate and they tell you that you are in rthe wrong and take money in my mind illegally from my account. I am military and on a strict budget, and the fact that i had to go to my parents to get the money to finish my move is embarrising to me, but to have to explain the reason why was even more. I have seen on this site that others have had this issue and i see a trend. Needless to say if i dont see the money i am owed here soon i will take this to my installtions Better Business office and hope that maybe they can accomplish something. I highly recommend that if you have direct tv watch yourself when you move.
