    I don't understand why the local police would show up at his residence and take a police report. Since he lives in So Cal and Dish is in Colorado, this would have nothing to do with local law enforcement...it's an interstate fraud claim.
    I'm thinking that Guitar Zero is a little "off" and perhaps thought that someone who came to his door was a police officer and thought he was giving him a report. Maybe there is a confused garbage man out there who is wondering why this guy wanted to rant to him about Dish.

    No, I don't have too much time on my hands. I'm 36 and a father of two, plus hunting season just started. I don't have time for this, but it is a three day holiday weekend.

    For you, it's "End of story." But, how about the rest of us? Check the internet, please. There are more than just one person effected by this scheme.

    Please consider yourself lucky.


    Consider yourself lucky, too. But, just check your CC bills for fees you know you did not make.

    As far as I know, fraudulent charges are to be reported to your bank. But, what if your bank is not there to service you? What if they fraudulent charges kept appearing over, and over, and over again? What do you do? I called the bank and then called the police. Bank fraud is bank fraud; a serious crime. So, I reported it to the appropriate authority.


    Yes. They needed to know If they needed to lease equipment to me, or sell it to me. If the credit card number was no good, I assume they might fear being ripped off. Whenever you lease equipment you'd expect a salesman to ask for your SS# and CC#. If you don't know that, then it's obvious you've never rented a car, or tractor or anything else.

    No, this thread shouldn't be removed. It's 100% legitimate. In fact, Rob Glasser is the person here I contacted about this matter. But, he stated he couldn't help me.

    I did, I have, I am. So are the police. But, why or how could it be anybody else, unless I've just exposed a huge theft ring? But then, you'd think DISH Network and Echostar would be all over this matter and not ignoring me and insinuating I was a liar. What do I have to gain by lying? That doesn't make any sense!

    You know, I just understand all your attitudes about this. Since you're not being ripped off, you feel you can call me a liar? Ludicrous. Do you guys work for or with DISH Network by any chance? It's beginning to seem like it.



    I made a mistake. I trusted DISH Network with my credit card number. How do you pay your bills with them? How was I supposed to get a quote from them if I didn't give them my CC#? Hmmm? If you're so smart, answer me that? How is anybody else supposed to get a quote of DISH Network service if they don't give them their CC#? Please, answer me that.

    If you don't have anything legitimate to offer, then please keep quite. Thank you. Oh, and "dosen't" is spelled doesn't.


    My name is Dennis. Sorry, I'm not this "Steve" person.

    Yes, I know is sounds ridiculous, and it is. But, yes, I canceled my DirecTV service. But, I was contacted by "Sherry" from DirecTV and she made me a great offer so I canceled my cancel of DirecTV. So, I'm a STILL a DirecTV customer.


    No, I'm informing people of a scam that appears a lot of people have been victim to, according to reports on the net. If you don't like this warning, then it sounds like you either work for or with Echostar and or own stock in the company.

    You are biased because of your now obvious association with this company. I understand your attacks, but I still don't appreciate them. You are not a considerate or kind person which makes me believe more you're employed by DISH Network.

    If obvious you're an Echostar employee trying to assassinate my character. It wont work.

    Echostar is going down. I'm getting media attention. I've called my local paper, and they want to do a story. I'm not going to have my named mentioned so don't think I'm looking for attention because I don't need it for myself.

    I'm warning people of a huge scam. The only people going against me are the actual schemers. That's obvious. I cannot and will not be intimidated. I can take it. I'm a big boy. I was a Boy Scout. ;)

    If you want to continue taking childish pot-shots at me, I can take. I'm not afraid or intimidated by you. :D

    So why haven't you discussed your post of two days ago? :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    "And in another thread (two days ago) this guy said, "Right now, I'm trying to get a deal with DISH Network and their Vip622, but apparently, I have to contact a credit check company (Experience) and figure out why my SS# and name don't match. This totally sounds like a scam to me, but I'll wait and see what happens."

    I take back my earlier criticism. Apparently Charlie has been seen recently with a fair amount of cash in his wallet. That's probably all the proof you need of your theft.

    Dish Network does not have my credit card number... and I am not on auto-pay. They mail me a bill every month, and I write them a check. No credit card required.

    The following is from www.dishnetwork.com and answers why they ask for your credit card. Remember, they also asked for my Social Security number. Please, also remember, DirecTV asked for my SS# too when I signed up with them several years ago. I had no problems with that, so why now?

    My name on my SS card is the same name I provided DISH Network. I contacted Equifax and I'm sending information to get a free credit report just to make sure there are no mistakes or fraudulent activity. Also, a friend who runs his own lending business ran a credit check with my name and SS#, and there were no problems. I said there were no problems with my SS# from the beginning and I meant it.

    Take a look here; it looks like DISH Network has been in trouble with the law before...

    I guess DISH Network has a new scam they're working on, hmmm?

    Well the only thing that seems to be correct so far in everything you have said is that I do own stock in the company. But in all the time I have been on this site, I have never made that a secret.

    Your assumption seems to be that anyone and everyone who works for Dish is neither considerate nor kind. I'm sure they will all be sad and hurt when they return to work tomorrow and hear that you see all 21,000 of them that way.
    As far as myself, I actually am kind and considerate, except when it comes to someone who is obviously trying to blow smoke up all our asses, which you seem to be trying extremely hard to do. As you can tell by the responses here, except for that "cop" that came by your house and your "local paper" , no one is believeing the story.

    It's Experian (formerly TRW), not Experience.

    Which just goes to show he can't hear, either.

    You see folks, somebody coming to the defense of a thief because he financially benefits from it. This obviously makes it clear why you continue your personal attacks.

    It surprises me to see such childish people here. But then again, there are bad people in this world. And yes Slamminc, that means you.

    Blame the spell checker for that. Also, I didn't catch the spell checker changing it. Sorry you got confused.

    If Dish set up an account for you they have the account matched to a receiver and a smart card that is somewhere out in the field. Each receiver has a unique number associated with it as does each smart card. A receiver will work only with the card that is matched to it. IF you do not have a receiver someone must, and that someone is probably receiving programming at your expense (or Dish's expense once this is "straightened out"). Call them back and ask them for proof of delivery of a receiver to you. I am sure you would have had to sign for it when it was delivered. Additionally, they rarely allow self installation of their systems. Find out from Dish who the local installer was who was assigned the job of installing your system and CALL them.

    Oh ouch, I am so hurt, I don't know if I will be able to sleep tonite because you have stung me so badly by saying that I am a bad person:( . I don't know if I can go on with life. I am going to call my broker at home right now and dump my dish stock so I can be a nicer person.
    Let's see, what makes you think I am so bad? That I don't believe you? That I own stock in a company in which that stock has made me a good chunk of change over the last few years? Because I have all but called your story untrue? somewhere along the thread, I thought you said you could take it? Something about being a boy scout or something?
    According to you: 1) Everyone who owns stock in Dish are "bad people". People on this site who don't believe you are bad people. Hence those who both own Dish stock and post on this site must really be going to hell without passing go!
    Seems to me you were trying to play the game "bullsh*t" and when we all yelled BULLSH*T, you you got pissed and now can't handle it.

    You're forgetting, I'm not a customer. I've never been a customer. DISH Network claims there is NO account under my name or credit card number including any charges of any kind, yet DISH Network is making charges on my credit card!

    What else can I do?


    I and everyone else here would expect that kind of response from you. If you want to display that kind of behavior, I guess you're entitled. This is the internet, after all. You can act as you do in real life, or pretend to be some "bad-ass bully." If this is the real you, I feel sorry for everybody who knows you.

    Again, why would anybody, not associated with DISH Network, in their right mind think for a second that this is all made up? What would be the purpose? It makes NO sense to make this story up! I gain nothing from it! Check my previous posts. Have I post anything before that sounds like "BULLS***?" NO! So why would I start now? As unbelievable as this sounds, it's not made up! This is all 100% the truth!

    Again people, don't be intimidated by DISH Network and check ALL of your credit card statements throughly. This individual is clearly a DISH Network employee trying to change your mind about looking into your past credit card bills for fraudulent activity. There is no other reason for his outrageous behavior.

    I stay confused... but that doesn't change the fact that what you're claiming simply didn't happen as you're trying to say it did.

    My thought is that you called, said set it up, they did the charge to your card, which took you to overdraft, the bank charged you overdraft fees, and you thought you could get out of it by blowin' all this smoke over "unauthorized" charges.

    Yes, I know, this means I work for Echostar, too. Oh, well, life's hard, you have to learn to deal with it.

    Dude, have you not read any of the post on this thread but yours? There isn't one that supports your position. There isn't one that has said they believe you. There isn't one that has had this happen to them as well. If it is such a huge scam and on going as you seem to think and claim, then where are the other people that this has happened to? Almost 700 reads on this thread, and not one has decided that your story is plausible to stop and say they believe you.
    I'm not being a "bad-ass" nor am I trying to "bully" you. I'm just calling you on something that I don't think is true. Now, come out with solid, real proof, and I will be more than happy to change my stance.
    I'm not treating you any different that anyone else. when it looks like BS, sounds like BS and smells like BS, I am going to call BS.
    Oh and since apperantly all of us but the hero works for dish on this site, how about we all get together and do lunch tomorrow.

    Echostar charges me every month for my America's Everything Package with locals, 2 extra receiver fees, and the superstation package. Never more, never less, but exactly what I have agreed to pay for the services I receive. There's no fraud, no "unauthorized" charges, nothing.

    So far, nobody's come up and added their story of being ripped off for an account they claim they never set up to this thread... which is one reason why nobody is buyin' it.

    Documentation... documentation... documentation. Without those 3 things, your story's just not going to be believed. Life's tough all over, ain't it?

    You're wrong. If you really bothered to read the thread, you'd realize how ridiculous your little scenario is.

    I guess this guy is a big-fat-liar, too... http://www.dbstalk.com/showthread.php?p=171161

    OK, I've read your past post, from the both of you, and I will provide proof. When I get it in the mail, I'll show my credit card bill statement with the fraudulent charges, a copy of the police report and the article in the paper via email link if or when the story is printed.

    Sound good?

    Might I suggest you fellas mature a bit, please? Thank you.
