DirecTV Inc Complaint - DirecTV seized my husband's Social Security check from the bank!
I read on my3cents.com that DirecTV cannot seize bank accounts without a court order. Well, that is NOT true. On the back of every DirecTV statement now, it says they can do just that if you're a little late in paying your bill.
Well, DirecTV did that to my husband's bank account on Oct. 8... and even took more than twice as much as we owed and refuses to refund it to us. There was absolutely NO notification that they were going to seize more than $400 from my husband's checking account! It nearly wiped out his Social Security check that was deposited on the same day.
Is this really legal?
