Sirius XM Radio Sirius Radio Automatic renewal ripoff Internet
I called Sirius' Customer Service to no avail. Typical ploys such as continuous repeats of the same question - "what can i do for you?" without any action. Requests to speak to a manager were met with "sorry, my manager is in a long meeting and can't talk". This pattern of behavior is similar to many service companies who believe they can bully or scare most consumers into paying for something they don't want and did not authorize or request.
What can you do? File a report with the Federal trade Commission. The FTC won't take any direct action, but it helps to start building a record.
Second, contact your state Attorney General's office as they likely have had prior complaints. There are several states pursuing actiona against Sirius for deceptive billing practices, including the automatic renewal. Arizona, Connecticut, Tennessee, Vermont, Florida and the District of Columbia are pursuing action.
Third, contact a local TV station and see if they have a consumer protection reporter. A little publicity does wonders.
lastly, contact your member of Congress and advocate for a change to federal law.
