If money is no object and you don't have any PRIDE

AUTHOR: - (USA)

JAM ENTERPRISES DBA DVR CABLE SYSTEMS SELL A BLACK BOX SET UP. iT IS AN OVER THE AIR RECEIVER OR AN ANTENNA THAT IS 7X9 INCHES FLAT AND BLACK. this blends in great with a black wall.

IF YOU ARE WITHIN 25 MILES FROM THE BROADCAST STATION YOU CAN GET A SIGNAL TO WATCH ABC,NBC,CBS AND FOX.  THAT'S IT!!!!! You may need a unit that supports 50 miles.

THIS ANTENNA IS MOUNTED BY A NAIL IN THE WALL, OR SUCTION CUPS THAT ALLOW IT TO ATTACH TO A WALL OR A WINDOW. IT MAY HAVE TO BE MOVED MANY TIMES TO GET A SIGNAL LEAVING MARKS ON THE WALL.

IF THE CABLE THAT RUNS FROM THE BOTTOM OF THE UNIT IS NOT LONG ENOUGH TO REACH THE BACK OF YOUR TV YOU MUST GET AN EXTENSION. what a mess!!!!

IF YOU HAVE NO PRIDE THE WAY YOUR HOUSE OR APPARTMENT LOOKS WITH THIS THING STUCK TO A WALL OR WINDOW WITH EXPOSED CABLES IT SAYS A LOT ABOUT WHO LIVES THERE AND IF THEY CARE WHAT THE PLACE LOOKS LIKE.

EACH TV NEEDS A $200.00 SET UP. TWO TVs $400 OR THREE TVs $600.

If you are an idiot that does not care the way your house looks you deserve one or more of these.

#17 Consumer Suggestion

don"t throw your money away

AUTHOR: - (USA)

The black box indoor antenna or 'OVER THE AIR RECEIVER' for $200.00 will ONLY receive ABC, CBS, NBC and maybe FOX. NOTHING ELSE. If the signal is blocked by a tree or a building there is no receiption.

Amazon sells a "stick" which will enable you the receive upwards to 200,000 movies and shows for $29.95 ( it comes with a free remote). Besides FREE shows and movies you can, for $7.95/month receive HULU and NETFLIX. In addition you will receive ABC, CBS, NBC and FOX at no extra cost.

Anything you can do with a DVR you can do with this system.

Go to amazon fire fox tv, hulu and netflix and be amazed what you can rereive. There is no need for a cable box attachment or an ugly indoor antenna. It installs in about 3 minuets.

I purchased a FIRE FOX BOX 1/2" high and 3x4 inches. It comes with 4 times the memory and a remote that is voice activated. speak a show or movie name or a a star's name or a network (ABC) and the choices are instant. It is a real trip!

information that will save money

AUTHOR: - (USA)

JAM now sells a black box package for $200.00. Best Buy sells the same thing for $18.95. It is simply an indoor antenna they call an over the air receiver.

JAM now is selling used modems. Amazon will sell the same modem (brand new) with a warrenty from the manufacturer for much less. It comes  with a return policy you can trust and they pay the return postage. If you are a hands on person purchase the modem at BEST BUY and take it home with you. 

30% of all the cable boxes that JAM sells have no power supply.  Further the term "field Pulled" is used. The cable company owns these boxes and do not make them available to JAM. These boxes may be stolen.

Jam uses a term "fully tested". On which cable system is this testing taking place without the proper firmware and software ????

Comcast, Charter, Cox, X finity and  Time Warner will not activate a JAM supplied box. Simply call them and ask!!!!

a lame excuse for not giving a refund when a box is returned

AUTHOR: stop jam cable box - (USA)

when you go to any of the JAM web sites they give their prices for the different boxes. in addition an msrp (manufacturer suggested retail price) price is posted showing JAM sells these boxes at a discount.

there is no such thing as an msrp price. no cable company sells their boxes, they are only rented.

so when a non working box is returned JAM gives the reason for no refund " because the box was sold at a discount" and it is company policy that no refunds are given for a sale made at a discounted price. 

gottcha. let me reach into your pocket and take you wallet. you don"t mind getting robbed.

FCC cable card information

AUTHOR: stop jam cable box - (USA)

in 2011 the fcc passed a rule that a cable company must make available cable cards.

in 2012 it was changed and in 2013 it was changed further and in February 2015 the rule now states a cable card can be made available only if the cable company wishes to do so and they do not want to help any company that gives a bad name to the industry.

JAM has printed written testimonials that all read like an ad (all these letters with no names, addresses or phone numbers is a great way to lie). information from an ex employee state that these letters were all written by jam.

There are over 400 posted complaints (the BBB in denver and 25+ ripoff sites) all stating the same thing. non working box, no refund (when box is returned) no return calls and no return emails. and in over 40 different postings stating non delivery of product after the cable box was paid for.

plug and play

AUTHOR: - (USA)

go to the following web site "tech terms.com". they have supplied what the term plug and play mean. it is a catchy phrase to describe a cable box that will work as soon as it is connected to a tv.

this can not be done without the proper firmware and software as well as m cards and s cards. and most of all the box must be activated by the cable company.

to find out if a box with the serial number provided by JAM will be serviced on your cable system you must call your cable company. anything else that is told to you by jam is a lie. don"t do business with them until you receive a serial number and it checked out by your cable company.

i contacted tech terms and they informed me jam can not and will not supply a box that is plug and play!

loose MONEY buy non delivery of product

AUTHOR: - (USA)

the pictures of the cable boxes on just about saving money and dvr cableboxes that are newer ( or brand new) can only be available from the cable company, unless they are stolen. These boxes are not available from any manufacturer (factory) with cable company firmware or software, which includes m cards. the firmware and software is installed by the cable companies at their testing facilities before the refresh is tested. 

when jam prints that the cable boxes they supply come with factory installed firmware and software or a factory installed m card is a deliberate lie to get your hard earned money. 

JAM will take an order (and your money) for a brand new box and never deliver any product. They will not deliver what they can't get unless the box is stolen and you will be receiving stolen goods.

an invoice from JAM will not list the serial number of the box and a stolen box will not be traced to them.

they have done this many times. if you don't want to get screwed and robbed  get more information by reading the postings on bbb in denver or any one of 25 plus ripoff/scam sites.

I am a tech for the second largest cable company. 

Why a JAM supplied box will not work. the programming and billing codes are loaded into a cable box before the refresh is tested. All this is done prior to suppling a customer with a cable box. The data ID continues to change second to second and without having the propriety software supplied by the cable company (in their cable box)  a JAM supplied box will never populate.

updated FCC rulings

AUTHOR: the cost from JAM is toooo high - (USA)

the FCC ruling in 2011 was written before the smart tv was available. the ruling in 2013 and the new rule in 2015 states that no cable company must be made to have a box on their system they do not wish to service. there is no ruling or law that will compel them to do so.

if the cable company, for some reason will activate your box for $300.00 after it is sent to their lab for testing at a cost of $250 (testing and round trip shipping), you will be charged a a cable connection fee equal to twice the cost of a box supplied by the cable company. it is their system and they control it. your first month's outlay is $850 with JAM ENTERPRISE ( the cost of the box,the cost of testing and activation)

the plan is to make the cost so high to get a box from ebay, amazon or jam enterprises that you will not considerdoing so.

spend $585 to find out why your box will not work

AUTHOR: stop jam cable box - (USA)

when i called my cable company they told me that they would activate my box for $300 and in addition charge a monthly cable connection fee.

before any attempt to activate was made i had to send the box to a testing center at a cost of $150.00 for the testing plus $25.00 shipping to the center and $25.00 back to me. if everything is not perfect the serial number will be recorded as rejected.

i was told they received less than 10 boxes and none of them were accepted. the box must receive a cable signal to allow the user to watch tv programming as well as ON DEMAND and PPV.

a Jam supplied box has never been able the get on demand or ppv and will always be rejected

NOTE: all the big cable companies NOW use this method. the reason:  the decision making process is taken away from the district people. they can no longer make a house call if it is for a product that is not supplied by the cable company with the exception of a product like tivo that has a written agreement with the cable companies.

now you paid JAM $350 for the box and $35 for shipping and handling plus $150 for testing and $50 for to/from  testing center for a total of $585.00.

You have wasted $585.00 for a box that will never be activated.

you must call your cable company to get the truth

WHY YOUR CABLE BOX WILL NOT WORK

AUTHOR: stop jam cable box - (USA)

all boxes that are provided by JAM come from one of three seperate places. 

1) canada - is is legal to purchase a box from a cable company. the serial numbers are recorded and will NEVER be activated in the united states. dealing with JAM you may receive one of these 

2) a rental box that was not returned to the cable company. this box is stolen and will NEVER be activated by any cable company. you will be charged with receiving stolen property. . dealing with JAM you may receive one of these 

3) surplus boxes, that are older than 8 years old. the cable companies deactivate these boxes and sell them as "JUNK" at $5.00 or less depending on the quantity purchased. that is why the boxes that JAM sells are dented and scratched with broken or missing windows. the serial numbers are recorded. WHEN YOU CALL THE CABLE COMPANY THEY WILL TELL YOU ANY BOX OWNED BY ANY CABLE COMPANY WILL NEVER BE ACTIVATED

THESE ARE FACTS - CALL YOUR CABLE COMPANY TO LEARN MORE or BETTER YET DEAL WITH YOUR CABLE COMPANY

why you will never get a refund

AUTHOR: NO REFUND - (USA)

read the 15 day money back guarantee on just about saving money's web site it states TO GET A REFUND THE BOX MUST BE RETURNED WITHIN 15 DAYS FROM THE DATE OF INVOICE.

YOU ARE INVOICED ON THE DATE THE BOX IS ORDERED. THE BOX IS SHIPPED 2-6 WEEKS LATER. 

you discover the box does not work and a RMA form is emailed to you 1-2 weeks after a request is made. when the box is rerurned it is way outside the 15 day window. NO REFUND!!!!!

when you request the return of the box that you paid for there is no return call or email and then your phone number and email address is blocked!!!!!

I was willing to order a dvr from just about saving money when i was directed to a site called stop jam cable box. this site listed the web address for more than 25 different places for complaints against jam enterprises dba just about saving money and several other company names as well . reading further there were 9 different company names used over the years. all companies were a jam enterprise company.

the junk that people receive

AUTHOR: stop jam cable box - (USA)

the boxes are 15+ years old. the case is dented and scratched and the window that shows the channel is cracked or missing.

when you plug it in a wall outlet you will not get power 60% of the time. see the postings on BBB and 27 ripoff sites

you cannot expect a piece of junk to accept a cable signal (PROVIDING THE CABLE COMPANY WILL ACTIVATE IT)

lets say they will. the activation charge is $300 (one time). the cable outlet fee is $30-$50 ($20 more for a DVR) per month or over $480 per year for the box without the dvr. 

FIRST YEAR COST: $350 for the box from JAM. one time activation fee from the cable company of $300 (if they choose to do so) and $480 in cable connection fees (at $40 per month or $60/month for a dvr)). TOTAL COST for the first year $1,130 or $94.16 per month. if you have a dvr the fee is $1360 or $113.33 per month

two(2) additional years is a total of $960 or $1440 (for dvr) ($40/month for a box or $60 month for a dvr  outlet fee for 24 months). your total monthly cost for the first 36 months is $58.05 or $78.05 per month. $350 + $300 + $1440 for a total of $2,090. a dvr is $2,810. this does not include the cost for any service from the cable company (like HBO etc).

NOTE:  GIVING YOU A FREE CABLE CARD DOES NOT INCLUDE THE COST OF ACTIVATION AND THE COST OF THE MONTHLY OUTLET FEE. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS CALL YOUR CABLE COMPANY and NO ONE ELSE if you want the correct information.

#41 UPDATE Employee ..inside information

the AG and the FCC are involved in the web site update

AUTHOR: stop jam cable box - (USA)

JAM dba just about saving money can not update their web site until the AG and FCC give their written OK. In addition JAM must submit several boxes for testing and show the paperwork showing where the boxes came from. 

Until there is written proof do not call for any information. All you will be told is lies.

proof that jam prints LIES

AUTHOR: stop jam cable box - (USA)

jam enterprises dba just about saving money uses a phrase that the boxes they sell are PLUG AND PLAY and are approved by all cable companies. LIES

if you call your cable company you will be told the truth. why flush your hard earned money down the toilet. everyone that purchased a non working box from jam and returned it did not receive a refund and the same box was resold the another sucker.

proof: over 500 posted complaints.  the BBB in denver and 27 ripoff sites state the same thing. jam is owned by crooks that had 16 different web sites in the past 9 years. this was done to cheat the public without leaving a trail.

the AG is making them redo the web site

AUTHOR: stop jam cable box - (USA)

web site is down and the AG (attorney general) is making JAM redo their web site. this time without the lies. with well over 400 complaints JAM must stop telling lies like FCC approved and cable company approved and plug and play. all lies

this time they must say "call your cable company" to see how much the cable company outlet fee is.

it the box works  it will cost you $500 per year more in fees plus the cost of the box.

jam is misleading

AUTHOR: stop jam cable box team - (USA)

on the web site just about saving money and dvr cableboxes jam is not providing updated information. they reference FCC update as of Aug 2011. it states that you can own your own cable box.

there have been updates in 2012 and 2013 and the latest in Feb 2015 FCC 12-126, the new rule. using your own cable box the cable company will charge up to $30.00 per month (more for a dvr) for a connection or outlet fee to use their cable system (providing they activate the box)

a visit to the JAM web site

AUTHOR: NO JAM CABLE FOR ME - (USA)

THE WEB SITE FOR JUST ABOUT SAVING MONEY LOOKS GREAT. HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE THAT POSTED COMPLAINTS ON THE BBB SITE IN DENVER AND RIPOFF SITES LIKE THIS ONE SAYING " THE BOX THEY RECEIVED DOES NOT WORK AND NO REFUND WHEN BOX IS RETURNED. PHONE CALLS AND EMAIL REQUESTS ARE NOT RETURNED.

PRIOR TO CALLING AND ASKING QUESTIONS ABOUT A CABLE BOX READ SOME OF THE COMPLAINTS. THEY ALL SAY THE SAME THING.

THEN ASK YOURSELF "WHY AM I DOING THIS"?

CALLED MY CABLE COMPANY

AUTHOR: stop jam cable box - (USA)

My cable refused to activated any box not supplied by them. Boxes obtained from ebay, amazon or JAM will not be serviced.

It is legal to own your own box (use it as a door stop) but that does not mean the cable company will activate. There is no law or FCC ruling that compels them to do so.

Get the truth by calling the FCC and your cable company! LISTEN TO NO ONE ELSE!

save time and money

AUTHOR: stop jam cable box - (USA)

after reading all the scam reports if you still feel that you wish to deal with jam enterprises dba dvr cable box or just about saving money do the following.

get the make and model and serial number of the box they plan to send to you. DO NOT GIVE THEM ANY MONEY or credit card numbers UNTIL YOU RECEIVE THE SERIAL NUMBER. call your cable company and ask if this unit will work on their system. find out how much the monthly cable connection fee for this box is (expect to hear $15-$20 per month)

if you like the cable company's answers order a box. pay by credit card so there is recourse through the card company. you will be told some story why they will not accept a credit card (don't do the deal) or it will cost more using a credit card - it is worth it after you find out the box will not work and wish to get a refund.
