Advertisements DirecTV stealing from my family... I had cancelled my DirecTV subscription back in January 2007 (we sold our house and were in the process moving.) At the time I was encouraged (forced) to put the account on "hold" ("trust me, sir, there are noe charges for doing this...") What do you know?!?!? My account was magically reactivated without my consent and then I get a bill for $170, past due, for "services" on the Tivo box I purchased from Best Buy, which DirecTV claims was a leased box, though no mention of "lease" on the reciept from Best Buy. So, they also want a $150 early cancellation fee for the DVR that I bought, and want it returned! We had planned to renew with DirecTV once the house was ready (this past month) but it's amazing that they can jump the gun like this and get away with it! Anyone have similar experiences with these theives? thier customer service was rude to the point where I was told to "shut up or hang up"... Any recourse in your expereince? My lawyer is looking at this but just thought I'd ask. Thanks!
