cancellation

They installed the equipment last September 19, 2019. Agent told I have 10 day trial but they deduct me the following day. I called them today September 30, 2019 to have a...

service fees increase by 2 x (bait and switch)

Account number A-[protected], service number :S-6143039 Best buy Vivint program sold me over $1200 worth of equipment on 04/13/2018 with an app access fees of $9.99 which was increased to $19.99 which is a 2X increase and some thing not expected by me as a customer and unfortunately contract says about the Increase after the initial term which protects a legal action but it thus not mean a bait and switch tactic has not applied here. The reasoning is just they discontinued the plan so now my options are either cancel and have and expensive wall decor or shut up and pay the increased price as I am stuck with the equipment which I fully paid for and I cannot even return it or do any thing about it.

scammers

Vivint.Smart Home(ToddAndie-wife Pederson and Keith Nellson founders) located at 4931 North 300 West Provo, UT [protected] is a shi**y company. Formerly APX Alarm Security Solutions(The Blackstone Group is part of them too) and one wonders why they had to change their name. BestBuy even STOPPED doing business(July 2018) with this shady company. Vivint did NOT CALL the police when my home was being burglarized and the burglars were still in my house(police could have caught them..) Vivint then insisted they did nothing wrong and refused to pay me for my loss(over $50k was taken). Vivint was so [censored]ing dirty they sent me to collection, because I would NOT pay them anymore money(Vivint was in breach of the contract).

***BEWARE***
Todd R. Pedersen is also trying to scam people again with "Vivint Solar, Inc.", "Vivint Purchasing, LLC", "313 Aviation, LLC" and "Plus550, LLC"

IF you call Vivint.Smart Home today 05 March 2019 Tues. their call center will NOT transfer you to anybody important to resolve your concernscomplaints. As of today even BestBuy a fortune 500 company wants NOTHING to do with this crappy company. PLEASE do NOT allow Todd Pederson or Keith Nellson or ANY other businesses these 2 people are tied to RIP YOU off(you work to hard for your money and valuables). Together we can SHUT these 2 people down plus I have filed complaints with the FTC, BBB(4499 complaints filed), etc. I will NEVER stop telling the world about these 2 LOSERS...

contract bait and switch

Do not use vivint they are liars and crooks. I lost my job and called vivint to ask when my contract was over because that would be one less bill to pay especially at 60.99 per month. The very nice man offered to lower my bill by 15.00 a month that would make my bill 45.99. He kept going on and on about that this would extend the warrenty 3 or 4 times that when he read a blurb about extending the contract 36 months I didn’t hear that - I heard warranty, and I did agree to the warranty being extended 36 months not the contract. This is a bait and switch tactic. The system is old and not working, the alarm keeps going off for loss of power and lost sensor. I only have 1 camera on because even with the phone help we cannot get this old one on line. They sent me batteries so that I could fix it myself with telephone help, exactly what am I paying 60.99 a month for? I am cancelling my contract. I actually called to renegotiate a lower bill and stay with vivint even with the crappy equipment but not now, not after being hung up on 3 times when being “transferred” and being lied to. So here’s the numbers:
The lowered my bill by 14.99 for 12 months saving me 179.88.
They added 36 months on my expired contract costing me 2195.64
Wow I saved 179.88 just to pay 2195.64??? I don’t think so, this is predatory!!!
Dirty secret, they don’t monitor your system, they pay alarm.com 4.50 a month to do that and they pocket the difference in my case 56.49 a month for old defunk system and equipment that I have to maintain myself.

they try to sell me another contract!

I had a contact with these guys and was extremely happy when it was finally over. Vivint gave me nothing but headache, their service was terrible, and I often argued with these guys. So my contract was over and I was extremely happy, but they started calling me like almost every day and tried to sell me another contract. I said I was not interested and asked them to stop calling me, but they really did not care. I can't get rid of these guys, they are so annoying! I will not sign anything, I don't want to deal with them, but they simply do not understand. I said a million times I was not interested but they keep calling! Terrible!

They have a Cancellation Policy that is totally unfair and unforgiving. If you have a circumstance where you cannot give a full 30 day notice before you need to cancel (such a...

Vivint Alarm Systemscan't get a refund

I would like to warn anybody out there considering doing any type of business with this company Vivint Alarm Systems. They can be found on all the China trade sites. I purchased wireless alarm system and got nothing. There is no possibility to communicate with them and to get a refund.

a bunch of con men

A guy dressed in orange came to my house about 8 PM on Saturday may 31. He wanted to sell me a home security system. He was a very smooth talker and polite. He told me about all the ways I could save money by getting their thermostate. Which he claimed was valued at a great deal of money. I don't remember the amount. He said that I would get that free. He also said I would get a health monitoring bracelet for free, smoke alarm, some kind of movement scanner, and two door alarms. I thought it was a good deal, so I agreed to get the system. He told me that the workers would install the system right away. I told him NO. I didn't want men in my house that late in the evening. He said that they were already here. So they came in and drilled holes in my front door and back door. Then they took the thermostate off of the wall, and in doing that, they wrecked the Honeywell thermostate. Then they made a hole in the kitchen wall and put some kind of alarm device there.

The next day, a neighbor told me about vivint being a rip off. So on Monday, I called my bank because vivint had my bank account number. I changed my bank account number so they couldn't charge me anymore. I also found out that vivint had already taken some money out of my account. A few days later, they tried to take more money out of my bank account. But by then, I had closed that bank account. Then I called and canceled the service the next day. Then on today, May 7, a man wearing a orange shirt came in and took the bracelet back, their crappy thermostate, the smoke alarm, and all the rest of the stuff.

What they left me with was holes in both the front door, the back door, the wall in the kitchen, and the living room where the thermostate was. I don't want other people to go through this, so please let me know if anything will be done about this.

    Vivint is saying that I verbally agreed to extending my contract even though they can't produce a the recording of my voice. Stay far away!
