Beware of this Satellite TV deception, This company offers a "promotional first time customer offer" of free installation and 3 free months of satellite TV for $49.99, the offer states in tiny lettering "credit approval required"
I went ahead and applied submitting my credit card number and SS# via an internet site, I was under the impression that since they were requesting this information, that a credit check was being done at that time, my credit card was debited $49.99 and I received a message saying, "Congratualations..." as if my credit had been approved and I was all set to go.
I received a certificate in the mail and a weird letter, saying just call this number for your installation, you will be asked for your credit card and SS# again ??? why ??? when calling this number I was told that I did not qualify for the offer but I may buy the equipment for $200.00 !!! + my original $49.99 which they alraedy had.
they stated that my credit score was too low, but would not tell me what it was supposed to be, as most people know a credit score is not an accurate or exclusive method of determining credit worthiness as it changes day to day, and is really only a general estimation. So why didn'y they do all this BEFORE they took my money ??
After calling and speaking to many phone reps, most of whom had no idea what was going on, getting several different stories about the offer from different people, I said this is BS and reported this whole foolish situation to the Better Business Bureau and sent back my "certificate" requesting a refund.
By the number of complaints against this company I see that i am not the only one who is displeased and disgusting with there crazy schemes, and the pathetic rebuttals I am reading. I think there is something seriously messed up with this company and they don't seem to care that people are not happy about it, as long as they can continue to trick you out of whayever they can get !!
