Dish Network Recklessly Exposes Consumers to Identity Fraud
Dish Network has caused me damages and I am not their customer, never been a customer and never inquired about their service.
I would never do business with Dish Network. Dish did a “hard” unauthorized credit inquiry on me that negatively affected my credit score, they retained no records of the authorization, (all in violation of the Fair Credit Reporting Act, FCRA) but when I contacted them, authenticated myself and asked them to have this credit inquiry removed they refused. They have done no investigation (in violation of the Fact Act).
Dish Network has a history of very bad business practices that hurt consumers in many ways and the State Attorney General’s offices in each state should be informed of these complaints as well as the FTC. In 2009 Dish Network signed onto an “Assurance of Voluntary Compliance” with 45 state AG’s offices and paid a 6 million settlement agreeing to stop their bad behavior, but they have not stopped.
