Dish Network Unauthorized charges from my bank account Internet
In March of 2012 I had to move from where I was living due to not being able to afford it. I had to cancel Dish because my new home did not have a place to set up a satellite dish (it's an apartment on the fourth floor of a four story building). I haven't been able to afford to pay the cancellation fees (which I was unaware existed when I signed up, as I signed up through Frontier) for breaking I contract I did not know I was under. My income is limited and I cannot afford to pay any expenses other than my current living expenses.
Anyhow, I went to look at my bank account and saw that Dish Network deducted the fee I was unable to afford from my bank account, using my debit card number, without my authorization/knowledge. I've contacted my bank to dispute the charges. Since it is in a pending status, my bank is unabe to do anything yet. They said the charges could fall off, or they could clear. If it clears, I have to call my bank back.
I did a search and found out that this has been going on for years! Trust me, if I'd known there was a contract, I would have avoided it. If I could AFFORD to pay it, I would. I make only $1175/month after taxes and can barely meet my living expenses.
