And by Felicia, what I mean to say is DirecTV.

 

In my humble opinion, DirecTV is one of the most dishonest companies in America. If you doubt what I way is true, Google it and see what happens. They are thieves and robbing their customers blind is just all in a day’s work for them. Again, if you don’t believe me, just see what the interwebs have to say about them and tell me I’m wrong.

One thing I know for sure, is they won’t be getting another red cent from yours truly. In fact, the day I called DirecTV to cancel my service with them was one of the most satisfying decisions I have ever made. After I got over the initial sting of the feelings of betrayal I felt after having been a loyal customer for over 15 years, it actually felt good to know I would no longer be a victim of their dishonest business practices.

The only reason I even subscribed to their service in the first place was because they were the only network that offered NFL Ticket when I ordered their service back in 2004. As a diehard NFL fan, I wanted to see as many games as possible and NFL Ticket allowed me to get my fill – and then some.

I finally decided to cancel my service in 2016 after they kept continually raising the subscription price. What I didn’t realize though, was after cancelling my service as a I requested, they started charging me for it again in 2017 without my permission. And they were very sneaky about how they did it.

They spread the cost out over several months, so that the charges weren’t noticeable. It wasn’t until the end of 2018 that I realized that they had started charging me for the service again. And when I provided them with proof in writing that I had canceled the service and that they then restarted it again without my say so, they told me it was my fault for not alerting them – and they refused to offer me a refund. In fact, they told me that they would only offer to pay for one month’s worth of charges.

After doing a search on Google and getting 498,000 results that told me I wasn’t the first customer to be ripped off like that, I did the only thing any self-respecting individual would do. I canceled my service and my only regret was that I didn’t do it sooner.

If you too, have been ripped off by DirecTV, believe me when I tell you that the day you cut them off, it will be next to impossible to wipe the smile off your face.
