Shouldn't there be a rule in there somewhere about not buying Dish?Phil T said:Rule #1. Don't buy anything from a door to door salesman.
Rule #2. See rule number 1.

It's a good thing both DIRECTV and Dish did the right thing here. Hopefully they're both also working with the local authorities. The equipment installed and tools used had to come from somewhere.
Kids still do that? I usually just get hit up by the parents, or at the grocery store during cookie season."chevyguy559" said:Just another reason why I don't even open the door for anyone selling anything door to door....except the neighbor kids selling stuff for fundraisers
You've a good heart, but spare your paternalistic empathy, and reconsider some of your assumptions. While there are obviously issues among some elderly folks (and individual stories stand out and make great press), many of them are far more skeptical/smart/scam-proof (some even in the "cyber" sense) than younger folks.directv newb said:Sometimes I wonder how the elderly people make it in todays society, they just don't have the distrust and "cyber smarts" that alot of us 50 years old and younger have today. PLEASE don't say I am putting down older folks, because I am not, I have huge empathy for them because of the incredible trickery that is used on people today thru the internet and other means.
