Received a call claiming from Billing Dept of Dish Network 1800-652-0237 and offered me pay 6months get 6 months free; which I fell for it and paid them using Green Dot MoneyPak. Later came to know this is fraud and lost $350.
I still get calls from these crooks. DO NOT EVER take offers from this number and DO NOT EVER use silly Green DOT feature.
Interestingly while talking to the scammer he was able to change my dish programming for which I thought they are really from Dish. Later came to know they used my internet Dish login somehow and changed programming.
With all these kinds of scams from years, DISH network appears to be loosely/poorly designed without second level authorization before committing programming changes. DISH NETWORK SHOULD DO SOMETHING TO AVOID these scams instead of just blaming consumers responsibility.
Product or Service Mentioned: Dish Network Internet Service.
Monetary Loss: $350.
