Direct TV Misrepresentation of service pricing/terms chicago Illinois
When I signed up with Direct TV, I knew it was only for a couple of months as we were new to Chicago and renting while we looked for a new home.
The temporary residence was a condo that included basic cable; which was on and operating when we moved in. I was told by Direct TV that I needed to open aan account to get additional services. Because it was only for a few months, I specifically asked if there were any term commitments associated with the expanded services i wanted to order. I was told no, so I proceeded.
When I called to cancel a few months later, because our new building offerred only Xfinity (thank goodness, I could finally watch a whole sporting event without "weather interruptions) Direct TV said I owed them an "early cancellation" fee. I recounted my conversation from my sign up and was told I was on the hook for the charge.
I then requested a copy of the "recorded" sign up call, only to have that request denied.
We are preparing complaints to file with the FCC and State fo Illinois... as well as, exploring a class action suit associated with misrepsentation of service pricing and terms.
