$75 Gift Card offered along with Showtime Free for 3 months
I was contacted 3 months ago by someone claiming to be from DirectTV (AT&T) trying to convince to get a 3-month trial for Showtime. I told them I was not interested as we do not have time to watch the package we have now so having more channels would be pointless. He told me if I did try, I could get a $75 visa gift card for trying it so I finally agreed. I called today to cancel at the number the man gave me (1-800-531-5000) and was told by the rep (Jimmy) that it was a scammer that called me. It seems very strange that it would be a scam when they did not ask me for any personal information. All they did was get me to agree and then give me the information I needed to cancel and to submit 3 months worth of bills showing that I had showtime to showtimeattrebate.com. That was it. The rep said it was never added to my account which I have looked on my bills and verified. We never did even look at the channels so I had no idea whether I had them or not. What is this all about? Is it really a scam? I am not going to agree to talk to any more DirectTV/AT&T reps calling me with offers ever again if that is the case. And the website is a real website. If this is a scam, you guys need to get that site shutdown and figure out who is using your name to perpetuate this scam. Prevent it from happening to others.
