Additional Notes

Complaint: Signed contract based on the company paying my cancellation fee with DirecTV and they have not. ******* ****** from Dish Network (Elara Home Communications X-XXX-XXX-XXXX) came to my home and sold me from DirecTV to Dish Network making all kinds of promises. One being that my cancellation fees would be paid in full by him. That is the only reason I agreed to the contract. Otherwise, I'd be out $200. Well, now DirecTV is contacting me non-stop because a $216.81 amount is owed for the cancellation of my contract. I tried calling ******* ****** (XXX-XXX-XXXX) and Elara Home Communications and they never answer my calls. I've worked with ******* before and I trusted him. But it turns out he was scamming me to make a sale. Dish Network and Elara should honor the promises made by the people that work for them.

Desired Settlement: The payoff of my cancellation with DirecTV of $216.81 as promised by a Dish representative who knew I would only sign a contract for Dish if my cancellation was paid.

Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 6, 2014/07/07) */ Hello, This was the result of a sales person that has since been fired from our company. He took advantage of our company as well as *****. We tried for weeks to contact ***** to help him resolve these issues but unfortunately we had a bad phone number. Although ***** had none of these promises in writing we came to an agreement to resolve his issue. We will be mailing hom **** to go towards a termination fee. He was happy, and in my opinion more then generous on our part. He said he would contact you and let you know it has been resolved. Thanks, ****
