Direct tv ran my credit mind you I was never aware of it, it just so happens that I was checking my my credit reports last weekend and that's how I caught it.it's showing up as a hard inquiry therefore it lowered my score.

I'm really pissed of because I have never called them to get service nor to even inquire. this is completely wrong and when I called a couple days to dispute it I was given the ran around I spoke to at least 5 different people telling they would transfer me or that I had to call a different number but in the end I got nowhere. the last person I spoke to and by then I was already so dissapointed she told me that I had to go online and submit a form so that they would remove the inquiry and she rudely hang up the phone. I just tried doing that form which I feel not safe doing it because they ask for more personal information that they didn't seem to have in the first place when they ran my credit so now I feel like they can do more damage with having my personal info.

this is a problem they created and now I'm stuck with the problem its taking all this time and energy trying to correct it and I have to do it all. Now I think they did this on purpose it just so happens that AT&T bought Direct tv and I've been with ATT Uverse for the last 7 years.

I think Directtv did this and without my authorization or consent.in fact behind my back because I had never in my life have called them

I found that Direct TV did a hard inquiry on my credit--I'm not even a customer!Come to find out, they can run your credit score by using your address!!!

My daughter, who is 16, was shopping at Walmart and the Direct TV representative flagged her over, and talked her into "checking to see if there are special rates in your area" and asked for her address. So, she gave it to him without knowing that it would effect my credit--I'm so upset. I mean, she' s not even 18.

I didn't know you could run a credit report without a social security number?But, when I called Direct TV, sure enough-they can!!!!

I had alert from my identity guard for credit inquiry from directTV.

I never had account & no interest open up the account, and there is no reason directTV need my credit report. I called & complained with representative but return was just call 866-444-0333 & file the form. This company is worst company & they have to stop wrong doing!!!!!!!!

I think my case is worth I don't have Directv neither directv now, but they are charging me every month into my account!

And when you call to customers service, no one knows, they transfer to many departments! So tire of this I will give this case to a lawyer.

I HAD THE EXACT SAME PROBLEM.

I never requested Direct TV nor ATT and someone in their office accessed my credit report without my permission.

This is fraudulent! I called several times to complain and to try to resolve the HARD HIT on my credit report and was given the run around each time. Each representative was not helpful as they lied to me that I was going to speak to someone and it always ended up in a voicemail and referring me online to give personal information like your social security. It does not even ask for the last 4 digits of your social security.

For a big business, I am surprised how unprofessional this company is.

I wanted to speak to a manager and they would not transfer me.

I am so livid!

Same thing happened to me...i have my credit monitored and inquiries are not important to anybody but the consumer.They stay on your credit for 9 years.

AT&T does this *** to anyone who leaves I think. They had the audacity to send me a check for a penny.

I'm not finished with them yet by a long shot.They need to be closed down.
