 Dish Network work took $380.00 from my Social Security Debit Card today. I don't have a account with Dish Network. And never had a account with Dish Network. In October I let my Sister in law use my card for a $1.00 charge for her to get service through a third party company. Today when I went to withdraw my rent money from my Social Security Debit Card $380.00 was stolen from my card from Dish Network. I never authorized Dish to every use my card but for the $1.00. I am on a fixed income I receive $815.00 a month from Social Security. I called Dish Network and they said there was nothing they could do. The money they took was my rent money. I just don't know what to do at this time I am devastated due to this happening I am going to lose my home. Please don't give ur credit /debit card to Dish Network. Anyone with advise please help me. Thank you

Don't give out your cards and information

AUTHOR: James - (USA)

What you did was authorize the person you gave the card to allow her to qualify for a Dish Network System. Maybe you should have asked more question on how the card was going to be used.   

You could have even went to and for a blank copy of the contract to understand the process of what the card was used for.

I understand your situation, but your real beef is with your Sister in Law and not Dish Network. she was the one who broke her contract agreemnt with Dish Network. Your Sister in Law could have gone down to Walmart. Then purchased a prepaid credit card and done the same thing.

no good deed goes unpunished

AUTHOR: James - (USA)

Here is your problem, you and your Sister in Law didn't understand. Or was not told what the card was really used for besides the 1.00 dollar. In the contract that your Sister in Law signed, if she ever broke the 2 year contract. The card could be used for the charges of breaking the Agreement with Dish and also if the equipment wasn't returned. 

If you go here you will find an example of the contract. So the lack of understanding the consequences of her breeching the contract with Dish. This led to your Bank Card being charged for her breaking the agreement. 

So really your beef is with your Sister in law and not with Dish Network, sorry! She is the one who broke her agreement and she is the one liable for your Debit Card charge.

I've always told everyone what the card was used for. I would also advise them to use a Credit Card and not a Debit Card. It got to the point I would refuse a Debit Card if they didn't have a Credit Card. At least with a Credit Card you could have disputed the charges.

I understand situation that your in, but I don't give out my Bank CARD to anyone. I only use my Bank Card anymore at the ATM at my Bank. It's to the point you can't even trust the machines your using. With crooks using skimmers attached the cash machines and gas pumps.

Next time tell them to go to Walmart and get a Credit Card in the checkout lane. It would be in your best interest in the long run.

All I can say is try your Bank for help, Atorney General's Office or go to the link I gave you and try using the Arbitration Opt out Form.
