Nice context-free rant.
Care to give us the details of just how DTV had your checking account #?
Were you a customer? Did you cancel their service with a balance outstanding? Did you cancel your service before the completion of the required time period for receiving free equipment?

This kind of shit doesn't happen in a vacuum, and your rant trying to slander them while leaving out any of YOUR involvement in the matter stinks like hell.

DTVCocksuckers! I'm fucking pissed. Going out side to blow off steam.
Link Posted: 8/19/2004 10:36:12 AM EST
oh yes,,, there are many ways to get money back from them.....

think hard.... or do a search on google

Link Posted: 8/19/2004 10:40:19 AM EST
Yeah, I think DirectV sucks too. At least they didn't try and just steal money from my account though. I switched from DTV to DishNetwork about a year ago.
Link Posted: 8/19/2004 10:40:34 AM EST
Uh... ok? How do you put a "stop payment" on a payment that's already made?
Link Posted: 8/19/2004 10:41:05 AM EST
Why the hell did you spend your own money to put a stop payment on that? You could have just gotten ALL your money back from DTV by bitching to them directly. Threaten them with police for stealing, whatever. THe bank fees - that's gonna be tougher.

It sounds to me that the BANK fucked up. I would be going to THEIR ass!!!

Ask them to show where you authorized DTV to take the money.

I could understand beingupset...but no reason to let this ruin your whole day.

Do you use this account to do anything on line?
Have you given any on-line merchants your account number?

Sounds to me like you and your account have been scammed.
More than likely it's not DTV's fault.

If you want to play the on-line bill pay game you should get one credit card with a limit (like $1K) and use it only for your on-line stuff.

Seriously, I know of people who have allowed the ACH bullshiite from their accounts so long that they had to close the account because one mistake made by one computer can drain your account. I know of businesses that pay their bills from "Zero Balance" accounts meaning that each month they add up the EXACT amount (to the PENNY) for all of the bills that they intend to pay and then deposit that EXACT amount into the account to cover the checks that they write the same day and keep the working capital in another account that can only be accessed by TWO signatures at the same time. This way there is nothing in the operating account to get tapped by anyone else. This means that after all the checks clear, there is a ZERO BALANCE in the account at the end of the month.

That's what I do with my personal checking account, except I leave $1 in there to make me feel like I'm not completely broke.

That's almost standard practice with payroll accounts

thinking about this, you may want to contact DTV and find have them look into the account withdraw. I know with dishnetwork, I can just punch in my CC info on the TV and exp date and pay my bill via the dish system itself. If someone out there was doing the same thing with DTV and accidently entered there CC number wrong, by even one number, it could have been charged to your debit account. Its just a theory but possible.... they dont check to see if the name matches the account, they just verify the CC number and exp date and do the transaction.......... I wold have the bank print up a statement showing the DTV attempt withdraw and your payemnt to block it. They should cough up the 22.00..............

And "without my authorization" can mean anything from 'no existing contract' to 'I didn't want them to but they did anyway'.
I posted based on what you said.

And I see from your follow-up posts that there was a prior relationship with DTV. But now there is a question on how they got access to your account - is your account at the same bank chain? Someone may have been 'helpful'.

And you should find out what the Law is about your previous service contract being still binding, or being abused in this manner.

I checked and i did have the account when i last had DTV. and i found out about it when i tried to use my debit card and it was declined so i called the bank at around noon and discovered the DTV charge, they said it was charged from my account at 11:10 this morning I called DTV and they told me they have NO record of charging me and that my bill was paid in full when i cancelled my service 3 years ago. So i call the bank back and they said that i could fill out a form to unauthorize DTV, I never authorized them to begin with but i filled it out and paid $22.50 for a stop payment. This $92 charge overdrafted my account and caused choas. I dont use online paying nor can i recall ever paying DTV over the phone and AGAIN i never have authorized ANYONE to automatically draft from my account so i'm still at a loss how they could draft money from my account and say they have no record of it when it's in black and white on my statement. I will be faxing a copy of my statement with a "BILL" for $22, and they said they would get back to me within 10 days

Your money is not safe in any bank
as for the $22 i guess we'll see, fucking cocksuckers

Small claims court. Also, see if your state has a "civil theft" statute. In Fla., civil theft carries treble damages + attorney fees. Also, you may be able to get a lawyer to file for you if AR allows taxation of fees against someone who interposes a frivolous defense.
