I purchased a HD DVR at Cosco for my direct tv service.The price was $299. plus tax. Now Direct TV is charging me a "lease" fee each month. My receipt from Cosco says I "purchased" the DVR. Cosco is acting as a agent for Direct tv instead of being a advocate for it's "members".

This a classic bait and switch scheme by Cosco and Direct. When i inquired at Direct why they would be part of such a deceptive and anti-consumer fraud the answer was "because we can"

We need a class action suit and the attorney general to stop this rip off.

Note; Direct Tv tells me i am an "A" customer to them. I wonder what the 'A' means to them? If this is how they treat an "A" customers I pity the poor bastards rated "B". O' now i know what "B" stands for. So much for ratings.

AUTHOR: Ddubya1022 - (U.S.A.)

First of all.... You should of read the paperwork whenever you sign up... it says "lease" like in 3 different places...... So you messed up once there. Then on top of that you got it installed with direct TV and I am pretty sure the installer had you sign something that had the agreement on there. If you go buy a TIVO you pay a monthly fee for that also.... duh.

The most important thing is the lease fee is also for the Cost. If you buy an HDDVR without the lease, it will Cost you $750 from Direct TV. But hey you are probably on of those jerks that likes to complain for no reason at all just because you didnt do your own research. What a whiney baby..... hah
