Received a call from Direct TV collections dept. Focus Receivables.

They wanted a past due balance paid, I explained that this was discharged through bankruptcy last year.

She said "great you ******  b****" and hung up.The calls continue day after day.

The BBB has over 200 complaints against them, and there is no stopping them from these relentless calls.

I found over a 100 similar complaints and they are still up and running.

It's true

AUTHOR: Ramjet - (U.S.A.)

Charles, it's true that I am often a business defender.  It's been my observation that a good share of the problems people have with businesses are self inflicted.  Either unreasonable or unrealistic expectation that they don't seem to be able to comprehend.

- wanting to do returns with no receipt
- wanting items warranted beyond the warranty limit.
- wanting something for nothing
- accusing them of charging too much AFTER they bought something
- Wondering why companies won't put up with obnoxious behavior
- Declaring bankruptcy so they don't get paid at all
- Wondering why companies want their payments on time and have the audacity to try to collect it
- Complaining because they don't want to use a check register
- Complaining because they are ripped off by psychics
An on and on ad infinitum.

Some people are certainly ripped of but it seems they are in the minority

Most of us don't have any of these problems.  We've heard some of your problems over the years and it appears that you cause all of your own problems, at least that we hear about.

Have a good day.

Grow up Charles

AUTHOR: Stacey - (U.S.A.)

Stop blaming everyone for your actions and start taking responsibility - anyone can do a search on you and find all the reports you posted.  The OP did not pay their bill and therefore they owe for the services they received regardless. Having Directv for over 8 years I have had not one single problem.  If the bill was discharged then contact your Attorney.

The BBB may have 200 complaints but there are over 1 million subscribers.  Pretty small.

And screw you stacy, you are a liar I have not ripped of any business they have ripped us off many people have to file bankruptcy because of george w bush If directv don't like It tough.  So STOP! attacking the poster. 

Its not peoples fault why people have to file for bankruptcy,  so If anyone who Is agaisnt the poster can piss off you do not know their personal situation for why they had to file for bankruptcy.  George w bush & the republicans have "Ruined" alot of lives.

Directv Is nothing but a bunch of greedy assholes.  Just like the people posting to this report.

Sounds like

AUTHOR: Stacey - (U.S.A.)

Directv sold your account to a third party debt collector.  Therefore I suggest you stop blaming Directv and blame the debt collection agency.  As for IDIOT Charles - you can call me names and everyone else as far as I concerned but YOU and YOUR MOTHER have ripped off more people than anyone can count so I suggest you stop the name calling. (but you won't)

Ramjet Is an idiot so I guess its ok for directv to steal peoples money and rip the public off Its ok for all businesses to rip us off but be we can't get compensated we have to let It go.  Just ignore ramjey he Is a business defender he doesn't care for consumer justice,  or being treated unfairly.

These businesses & creditors are allow to screw us,  make us poor.  So they can get rich of us.  Then to make It worse,  we have to put up with assholes like ramjet.  We have nobody on our side.

I don't blame them

AUTHOR: Ramjet - (U.S.A.)

Can't say I blame them.  You successfully ripped them off, I'd be pissed too.
