Another option -- if they only find your account -- instead of having your BANK auto-pay Dish, have DISH do AutoPay FROM your bank. It sounds like, currently, you are NOT using Dish autopay -- but are instead just having the bank auto-pay your bill. Turn it around so that Dish AutoPay is enabled -- and then they have no argument for saying that you paid late or have an outstanding balance.

1. Check your Bill Pay system and see when you bill was paid for each of the last 6 months.
2. Call Dish and have them tell you when they received payment for each of the last 6 months.
This should tell you whether they are receiving payment on time or not. Once you have this information, you are equipped to send a note to CEO@Dishnetwork.com and present your case.

Actually, you have the right to tell any and all bill collectors to stop contacting you. I wouldn't recommend it, and think it would be a better idea to talk to them and explain what's going on, however.
3rd Party collectors, yes. The original creditor is not bound by that provision of the FDCPA although there are other limitations the debtor can impose.

I also receive a call a week from Dish that my bill is past due. The only problem with that is that I have Directv and have not had Dish for over 5 years.
Have you called and checked that you don't have an outstanding balance? Or have you changed phone numbers in the interim?

:confused:Dear Coldsteel -
NOT LATE ON BILLS - SET UP BANK ESPECIALLY TO PAY DISHNETWORK >EARLY< TO AVOID THIS TYPE OF CALL.
I once rented an apartment and they always sent me a rude demand via USPS whenever the rent was paid early. Could it be some bookkeeping software package just cannot handle an early payment?
