I signed up with Dish Network last year in Oct. 2014 for a year service, never for 2 yrs. Now they are claiming I signed a 2 yr contract. That was NEVER the case, I did a phone contract for 1 year. Now I am wanting to cancel my service and they are wanting to automatically withdraw $260 from my bank account for early termination fees. When I asked to see this supposed signed contract, their is a forged signature on this contract. What can I do????
Probably not much. I'm changing this to consumer law.
All of Ms. Straus’ responses to questions posted on Avvo are intended as helpful information based upon the facts stated in the question, and are not to be relied upon as a full or complete legal opinion. It may not be what you wished to hear, and it does not create an attorney-client relationship. Ms. Straus has been licensed to practice law in California for 30 years. Ms. Straus regrets to report that you cannot get contact information about her in any way, shape or form, as Avvo wont let you. Good luck.
You most likely agreed to a 2 year contract. Dish usually requires a 2 year agreement. Try and negotiate with them for a smaller early termination fee, or keep the service for the second year and then terminate. That will probably be cheaper and at least you will get the service.
