    File a complaint with your state attorney general asap.

    You certainly can do a charge back for unauthorized transactions/fraud. Even if Qwest disputes it, your bank has insurance to cover you even if they cannot recoup from Qwest's unauthorized billing. You should get all your money back credited to your account.

    I am reopening this to report I have not yet found any acceptable resolution in this issue--

    No one I have talked to within the process has ever called back as they promised they would except for a fellow DBS member. She reports she read about my issue and send me a PM. I believe she is trying to resolve this but says it could be several days?? Thank you Anna for your kind concern....

    Bottom line beware that a key mis-stroke within a process of simply requesting a quote for bundling from Qwest can apparently result in your direct tv account becoming Qwest property without your authorization.. From there I have spent hours just trying to get my account returned to its former auto bill status. Direct TV has thus far been powerless to do this.

    I guess it would be a catch 22 thing...

    I got it, but I'm older than you.

    I was thinking Kafka, but Heller works :)

    Yes, "Metamorphosis." At least the OP has not been turned into a horrible vermin!

    I would file a complaint with the fcc or ftc whichever one handles these types of issue. This reminds me of the whole slamming thing with phone companies changing your long distance provider. I'd also call the BBB and state AG.
