    This morning I received the email and clicked on the link. I checked my account but it has not yet been added. I assume this takes a while to be applied to the account?

    I've called 3x and chatted 4 times...(the excuse) Because I do not auto renew I get no deal this year?...I buy every sports package and the all the RSNs.....I cant even imagine now giving it away and all those people got it for $99 thinking that was a deal?....I find that odd?

    Mine has not shown up today so I started a chat. To make a long story short the rep offered to sell it to me for $100. I pushed for the free offer in the email. They asked me to copy and paste the email which i did. I was instructed to click the link again, which I did then they told me it was fixed. Needless to stay it is still not on my account. UGH

    This just got interesting. Now I called DirecTV. The rep says they cannot give it free but offers to sell it to me for $99. I say that sounds like bait and switch so I ask to speak to retentions. The retentions rep tells me this is a scam and Directv/AT&T is NOT sending these emails.


    I ask why the domain is registered to AT&T and why it has my account number in the email. She says do not click on the link, this is a scam and they are getting a lot of calls about this. The credits are not being applied to the accounts so they know this is a scam.


    So am I to believe DirecTV has been hacked? An email comes from a domain registered to AT&T Services and uses AT&T Services SMTP and contains my DirecTV Account number. But this is a scam and DirecTV has not been hacked? BTW, att.com is registered to AT&T Services. The same as att-mail.com .

    Sounds like ATT trying to backpedal for sending too many emails out.

    I got the email - And I'm no longer interested in the NFL - Perhaps D* & NFL are trying to find missing eyeballs?

    I was surprised when I got it. Last year I called, and the best I could do was a small discount on it.

    I checked my account tonight and it now says NFL Sunday Ticket MAX 2017 "Included in your package". I guess that email wasn't a "scam" after all.

    Try telling that to D* retention. LOL This ranks up there with one of the worst customer relations events I ever experienced.
