Received email from Dish today on someone asking for credit card numbers and payment by Western union. Here's a copy of the email that went to my spam file. Dear Gary, Recently several DISH customers have reported that people claiming to be representatives of DISH have contacted them in an attempt to collect money for special promotions or upgrades. We have discovered that these callers are often asking for credit card numbers or requesting payments via Western Union or Green Dot. This message is to remind you that DISH will never call you asking for this or any other personal information or information related to your DISH account. If you receive a call requesting a payment in exchange for a promotion or upgrade, we encourage you to disconnect the call and contact us directly at 800-333-DISH (800-333-3474). As a reminder, the forms of payment that DISH accepts are: Credit card Debit card Electronic funds transfer Check by mail Cash through any retail store that offers: MoneyGram Express Payments IPP (In Person Payments) PreCash CheckFreePay ACE Cash Express Western Union Prepaid Services* *If you make a payment through Western Union, you will receive a 10-digit Money Transfer Control Number (MTCN). DISH will never ask for this number. Thank you for being a valued DISH customer.
