Deceit, Lying & Ripping customers off should
be their slogan!
all Egyptians and Arabs out there to AVOID signing
up with Directv at all cost (http://www.directv.com).
our own experience this company will stop at
nothing to rip you off.
will say anything you want to hear, if you call
them to inquire about their service, just to get
you to sign up with them. A fine print, with
absolutely no mention of it, when you initially
inquire the service, indicates that you will be
fined $20.00/month for the remaining of a 2 year
contract, if you want to cancel at anytime prior
to the completion of the 2 years term.
catch here is not just that you are stuck with the
penalty for cancellation, should you change your
mind, but they can drop any service at any time,
and yet you are still stuck with the penalty, even
if it is not your fault. In our case, it was
is a screenshot of their offering to provide
Arabic channels (which as of 06-06-09 was still
available on their website)
only reason, we have signed up with Directv was
the Arabic channels they offered as per the above
screenshot. However after
signing up, they simply dropped all Arabic
channels, though they still have it advertised as
indicated above) and instead of being a decent
company, they turned out to be yet another
American corrupt corporation, demanding the
customer pay the bill for their deceit and
incompetence. Based on our experience, we
can confidently say that Directv is involved in
unfair and deceptive business practices, that
should not go on unnoticed.
waste your time reporting this business to BBB
(Better Business Bureau). They are obviously
in bed with Directv. We have email
communications and the back up to prove that BBB
was trying to assist Directv in shoving our
complaint under the rug. In my personal
opinion, BBB is a useless entity, sponsored by the
same corporations they make you think they are
trying to protect you from.
recommend that you file an official complaint with
government agencies as follows:
- You can file your complaint online
Center Federal Trade Commission
N.W. Washington, D. C.
State Attorney General
