A reliative was liiving in my house and subscribed to dish network. The relative was disabled and later died of their illness.
Upon their death I called to have the service discontinued. I explained the situation and was told to send the equipment back in a box they provided. I paid the remainng bill for the service and sent the equipment back that required no shipping charges. I started getting phone calls everyday about a few months later saying I owed them the shipping charges.
They kept calling and I explained that I had not signed any contract or requested the service. I was told since I permitted it to be installed on my house I was responsible for the shipping charges. I was tolld if I didn't pay they would submit that on my credit report.
After about two weeks I paid the amount due to being harassed everyday and the possibility of problems even though they didn't have of my personal information except name and address and phone number. I will never get Dish network and also passed this to others considering satillite tv.
