Okay so I was having money issues (the cost of living alone is so high) so I put my DTV service on hold for 6 months. I assumed that I had already completed my 2 year contract but it turns out that when I did this I was a few weeks from the 2 year contract date. The service was recently turned back on and I sent them an e-mail telling them to cancel the service. Part of the e-mail I got back reads "Within the next eight business from account disconnect date, you will receive a billing statement showing your account has been disconnected. For your convenience, if we have a credit or debit card on file, we will automatically charge your card for any outstanding balances, Early Cancellation Fees, previously unbilled DIRECTV CINEMA or Pay Per Views, and equipment Non-Return Fees (if applicable). We reserve the right to apply additional charges for a minimum of three months after you receive the billing statement reflecting account disconnect. If the account is left with a credit balance, refunds are issued approximately 30 days after the account is disconnection statement is sent. All final payments or charges must clear before a refund is sent.". So they're going to bill be for any service fees I owe and cancellation fees all at one time to my debit card? I specifically told them in that e-mail that I couldn't afford their service and I'd pay them when I can but now I'll likely be charged hundreds of dollars and put my bank account into deep debt. I work full time 40 hours a week and 90% of my income goes toward utilities, rent, and other necessities. If I contact them and explain things do you believe they'd agree to a payment plan? I'd hate that cancelling DTV would ruin my life and get me kicked out of my home or have my power turned off for a month for such a stupid reason. Thanks for any advice.
