Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

Ty Claiborne with Capitol Media is a Con Artist and a Liar.  He goes from door to door selling Direct TV services and promises to sell it a lot cheaper than what you ar paying to Dish TV. He promises to pay off your early cancellation fee  for Dish so you can go to Direct. Never happened. He said that I would get a $100.00 off my bill ($10.00) for 10 months off my bill for referring someone else  to suscribe to Direct TV.  Never happened. Had a $25.00 a month Genie reciever  installed when all I needed was a simple reciever that was free.  I only have one small  outdated TV hooked up and  the Genie is meant for more than one TV and HD.  He knew this.   My 1st bill was a lot more than he quoted me and then the next bill was raised $13.00 more.  He would not answer my calls. He told me once that he had put a check in the mail for my cancellation fee but I never recieved it. [continued below]....
.....  I told him that I was going to report him for all the lies and promises that he felled to keep.  Only then, Did he call me back and it was to inform me that he owned his own franchise and that I couldn't report him because everyone involved in the transaction of his sale to me worked for him.

He hasn't followed through with any of the promises he made to me if I would change to Direct. I have spoken to several others right here where I live and they said he had conned them also and wouldn't answer their calls either.  DO NOT TRUST ADAM TYLER CLAIBORNE (TY CLAIBORNE>  He comes across as this nice clean cut caring honest man but he is very decieving and a liar. I don't see how Direct could let someone like him represent their company. I have suffered so much anguish and worry over this.Direct says they cannot do anything about it. If you look on the internet you can find articles about him being a con artist and a thief.I find  these articles  to be true  because  he has did the very exact thing to me. How can he live with himself.  He needs to be stopped.

Capitol Media / Capitol Theatre Ty Claiborne

AUTHOR: The Tech - ()

My name is Daniel Baldwin. I worked as contracted installer for these thieves. I quit them due to the thefts and cons this guy was committing. I started reporting this info immediately. Everyone that has been defrauded by him needs to report it to authorities. The FBI said this is white collar crime called "Fraud by Deception'. Report it to Consumer Affairs in Nashville, your local District Attorney, your Sheriff's department. Also call Don Dare of WATE News. He has seen much of these crimes and agreed it is intentional fraud and theft. So far he has not reported it. Post about it to your friends and family on facebook just as I have. The only way to stop him is by exposing his crimes. At the time of my dealings with them, the dealer name was Capitol Theatre LLC. It was not even a registered LLC name with the Secretary of State. Since my reporting this, they registered the name "Capitol Media" as a DBA name (doing business as) under "THE CAPITOL THEATER LLC" which is listed with the Secretary of State in Tennessee. Adam Tyler "Ty" Claiborne's brother owns a downtown theater in Maryville, Tn. called "Capitol Theatre". They had their DirecTV dealership under the same name but not registered as a DirecTV dealership anywhere. They illegally called themselves "Capitol Media" to the public to hide the association to the downtown Maryville business. DirecTV told many customers that they 'DO NOT" know who Capitol Media is and that they do not have a dealer called that. On October 12, 2012 is when they finally registered that name as a DBA name even though they had called themselves that to the public for many years. They are all a bunch of crooks!
