Additional Complaint Information

This company is advertising "BBB Members in good standing" in their customer surveys. In addition, they are telling potential customers on the phone that they are "BBB members in good standing." They are not members of this BBB and are in violation of trademark law. Based on information obtained by this BBB, Future Technologies is the same organization as Cross Satellite Communications. Richard Berryhill, Senior Partner of Future Technologies International, LLC was a principal of Cross Satellite Communications, LLC along with Ed McCracken, President. In addition, Cross Satellite Communications reported to the Richmond BBB that they had opened an office in Martinsville under the name Future Technologies International. Consumers who have purchased satellite systems from Future Technologies International using their credit cards are charged by Cross Satellite Communications.

Cross Satellite Communications has an unsatisfactory record to date with the BBB due to an unanswered complaint.

BBB files also show that Cross Satellite Communications, principal Ed McCracken, had a main office in Hendersonville, TN. The Nashville, TN BBB reports they have received complaints from consumers in Virginia who purchased satellite dishes from Cross Communications. Complaints allege that information regarding prices and available programming were misrepresented at the time of purchase, and these customers are now unable to locate the company. These complaints remain unresolved in the BBB Nashville files due to the fact the BBB has also been unable to contact the company.
