Dish Network/ Echo Star/ VMC Satellite ripoff consumer fraud ripoff Fairfax Virginia *EDitor's Comment
*UPDATE Employee: Customer Understands
I ALSO contacted, IN WRITING, the Colorado Better Business Bureau (where Echo Star is headquartered) because EchoStar OWNS Dish Network AND VMC Satellite is an "affiliate" of Dish Network. They make these corporations confusing for people so they find it harder to blow the whistle on them. But due diligence pays off.
I also wrote to the New York State Attorney General's Office, because EchoStar, aka Dish Network, aka VMC Satellite is DOING BUSINESS IN MY STATE even if they're NOT located here. As such, my State Attorney General's office has a bona fide interest in protecting its residents from out-of-state scammers like these.
I pointed all the letter recipients to the fact that the Colorado Better Business Bureau HAS SO MANY COMPLAINTS filed with them against Dish network, EchoStar, VMC (over 3600!) that it has asked consumers to CALL ECHOSTAR FIRST before consumers file the complaint! Sounded like collusion to me!!! I filed the complaint anyway!
I'm TIRED of trying to negotiate with thieves! If they were prone to do the "right thing" in the FIRST place, there wouldn't BE SO MANY COMPLAINTS against them!!!! I have wasted countless hours trying to get anyone from Dish Network to do the right thing before I gave up trying. I'm finished.
I disconnected the box yesterday. I'm filing a small claims action this week, and HOPING the government does the RIGHT THING and goes after these THIEVES. WARNING: DO NOT DO BUSINESS with these thieves, no matter how tempting it seems.
If it sounds TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE, IT IS! I have a Doctorate in LAW and they tricked me! (TO TOP IT ALL OFF, CONTRACTS IS MY FORTE'!!!!)
They are scam artists and have NO DESIRE TO TREAT CONSUMERS with respect, courtesy or fair play. In the end, I hope it's THEY WHO LOSE. File your complaints w/ your state, regardless of where you live. Stop these thieves once and for all. Your INACTION HELPS THEM GET RICHER.
