There is no direct number to the cancellation dept. The people I did talk to in customer service ( yea right ) are trying to get me to pay a $300.00 cancellation fee, plus $400.00 for the equipment until they get ti back.
The other problem is I never agreed to buy this equipment. I asked for a $59.99 a month service and when my bank statment came in I see I'm charged $99.00 + tax! They tell me I'm charged an extra $40.00 a month to buy the equipment. I did not agree to that!
I have had two case numbers for the same issue and when I call no one knows anything. When the satillite was installed the guy splintered the wood on the roof by not drilling first, just forcing the anchor screws through. I tried to cancel this service the same day I found out that they were charging me more than I agreed to, and they would not because when I got my statement it was like a day or two over the 30 day limit they set to change your mind.
And now they want to stick me with this garbage for 15 months at $103.00 a month and I own this garbage at the end? I don't think so! I contacted the BBB right away but I don't think they are going to help at all, I don't trust them not to take a pay off!
If I have to cancel my bank account and refuse to pay then I will. I would rather they just come get this garbage, be happy with the money they got me for already and be happy with that. I need a way out of this that's no fault!
