Dish Network Investigated By State Attorneys General
Posted 15 August 2002 - 05:39 PM
"EchoStar executives said the investigation was prompted by customers reporting complaints to the offices of state attorneys general. Spokesman Marc Lumpkin declined to comment on the number of complaints, though he said some of them involved consumers who were confused about how to get a refund on programming or equipment"
Refund on programming ? Since when does Echostar refund any programming ?

If DISH refuses to eliminate a charge that the subscriber KNOWS is wrong, what's to stop another charge in the future? What if it's $100 or $1,000?
People who've been abused on this issue really need to do the entire community a favor by pursuing resolution so that DISH eventually responds to complaints. For those affected, now is a good time to raise the issue since they are under investigation and will probably be more helpful than they otherwise would be.
For good reason, I never criticize someone until I've walked a mile in their shoes. If they don't like what I say, what're they gonna' do? I'm a mile away. And they have no shoes!
