I received Dish Network through the VMC Satellite website. For the 7 months we had the service, we had at least 5 service calls due to no reception.
When we moved, in Feb. 2003, the new place was not suited to having the satellite....so we cancelled the service.
Within days, my bank account was thrown into chaos by a sudden withdrawal of $240. When I called they stated it was all in the contract and they would ship boxes to me for the 3 receiivers we had to ship back to them.
Needless to say, my account was accessed AGAIN for over $500!! They stated it was for the equipment and would be returned to me after they received the boxes - which we in transit to them. Closed an account that had been in good stating for 30 years!! Why they made 3 separate desposits, to put it back in my account, confused the bank totally. Especially when they withdrew it in one lump sum.
Now I have received an EXTREMELY threatening letter from VMC demanding $290 because I broke the contract with Dish network!! WTF?? They have stated the are sending my "debt" to their "extremely good" collection agency. Oh, and this agency gets what they go after!!
I thought I was done with this s**t when my account was accessed - WITHOUT notice - for $240!! Now VMC says the site "contract" states I would owe this, if I cancelled before the 12 months was up.
What is up with all of this?? Why must I pay 2 different companies for one d**n service?? As far as I am concerned, they will have to take me to court. In the mean time, i will contact an attorney, the District Attorney, whoever the hell I have to, to get these d**n people off my back!! Outragous!!!!!!!
