GoDish.com scams customers

68 of 68 GoDish reviews

GoDish.com is one of the subcontractors installing for dish network.These people charge $49.99 as an application fee, which they never disclose.I and others only found out about when receiving statements from the bank.

I specifically asked them if there would be any charge to my bank card and they said NO - that they only needed the information to get the service ball rolling.

Dish Network is aware that some of their contractors do this, but they don't care. Go Dish claims that they told me about this, but if they had, I never would have signed up with them.

To make things worse, I did agree to a 2-year contract.I have found some other reviews where the new customers were never even told about the 2-years upfront.

Ordered a Dish package from a flyer that I got through the mail. Go Dish.com is a deceptive name for a third party that doesn't disclose that they are not the dish company. After getting the alert from my credit card about the extra $49.99 charge that I shouldn't have had to pay had I contacted Dish directly, I cancelled the order the same day and disputed the charge from Go Dish.com . I feel like a rape victim!

My sister signed up aprox 4 months ago and does not have any credit/debit cards so I used my card with the representatives word and confirmation that my card was deleted off the account and could never be used again! On Friday, Aug 16th 2013, they took $750 from MY card for my SISTERS account! When I called for an explanation and refund, they apologized and said they could not refund my as there is no payment arrangements in the account! I requested they pull the call where their rep told me my card was deleted and could never be used again! They apologized again and said they can't do anything about it! Really! This is illegal! Please any future customers, do your research and do not let your family or friends be a victim like me! I'm trying to get it back from my sister but I know it's going to be a lengthy process and my kids have to suffer with school clothes! :(

this is exactly why I am checking what I can find out about GoDish. they have a local (NC) ad for $20/mo for HS internet. I feel so "used" by Charter who has gone up from $20/mo to a current $30./mo. We users seemingly have NO Regulators looking out for the consumer. This is a 50% increase in one year. Why do we pay the govt agencies? all they do is pretend to be our advocate :( :( and have dinner w/those overfed Rats they supposed to protect us from.

This place misrepresented themselves as dish and is nothing but a scam. You don't realize they are a third party until you have a problem and call Dish directly. Oh and by the way Dish will tell you it's not there problem and to contact the third party that signed you. I say they can both kiss it after only 30 days I'm done!

Why?Is everyone so quick to give out their "Credit Card Information"?Why?Is it that "Know One Read's ,The Find Print Before Commiting To An Contract?Then everyone want's to "Cry About Their Credit Card Being Charged After The Fact.Eventurely you all will learn"Everything That Glitter's,Is not Gold".This is your fault.All companies does this.They ask for your "CREDIT CARD INFORMATION",So they can "Decieve and Rob You.I alway's give a "CREDIT CARD NUMBER THAT I AM GOING TO CLOSE SOON AFTER".This way they cannot remove anything that is not their.

Godish. com sent out flyers saying, High Speed Internet (ANYWHERE YOU LIVE) starting at $19.99 a month.
I called to try and get it, and they said that it is not available where I live for that price, and it would cost me $49.99 a month.
Sounds like false advertisement to me.

*STARTING AT* 19.99 no matter where you live! Try and make sure you refer to everything on that flyer bud. Starting at always seems to be the part people leave off when they complain

I asked the guy about additional charges and he said their would not be any. Do not call go dish, just call dishnetwork directly. The lady had the nerve to have an attitude when I asked her about the $49.99 fee. BIG RIP OFF. Could have do spent my $49.99 on something worth while, rather then a phone call.

This is the perfect scam!!!I asked the agent straight out "what exactly will be charged to my account". He specifically told me $26.97 by Dish. No other charges until the second month. First month was free. I had a certificate. Then, actually 15 days later, the charge showed up on my account. I called Dish, all they would say was to call Go Dish at 866-694-3474. I've called and just so happens, all operaters are busy. They say to call later and then hang up. Funny, if you were called to sign up, they'd answer immediately. What a scam!!! What a scam!!! Dish should be held accountable for this company using their name. It really discredits their name in my eyes.

:( I lent my friend my debit card to set her service up when she was told that her card would not go through due to some computer glitch with that type of card. Now GO-DISH is charging 53.61 on my account with out authorization. They told her that the card information would be removed when she gave them her information.

dumb ppl that dont pay attenti

Aug 28, 2012 #534979

Yes there's a processing fee, you are told, all it takes is paying attention to a contract that u are making, if you have a problem with the fee they will work with you, its no surprise you feel scammed when ur not paying attention, stop complaining and listen!

I am glad I read this as I considered going with this company as I am looking for a new provider, but from what I read here, I am going to keep looking.

I called 18004960472 dish to see what my opinions where because I was frustrated with my Internet cutting off and my current service telling me I had to pay for them to fix there own equipment. Anyway I called and the man on the other in kept pushing me for my SSN and my bank information. He stated that he needed before he could give me a quote. When I didn't give it to him he transferred me to someone who works for my current provider or someone who sells for them saying that I don't qaulify for there services since I do not have a credit card. I do have a credit card more then one which I shop everywhere online. The man made an assumption because I told him my children have autism and I need my service to work properly. I even told him that my current services where paid inadvance so I wasn't ready to move just yet just wanted my opinions.. ANYONE WHO WILL NOT GIVE YOU THE INFORMATION BEFORE YOU HAVING TO YOUR BANK INFO AND SSN HAS BAD INTENTIONS!!!! NOW I KNOW WHY THESE DISH PEOPLE ARE ALWAYS CHASING AFTER YOU IN THE WALMART PARKING LOT! There business practices are all bad and frankly they don't qualify for my business my credit card number or anything else I have.

All these people on here that used to work for GoDish.... I did listen to the adviser, i did hear about the 49.99... i said "i thought it was only the first month which is 59.95, why are you charging me 49.99? you know what just cancel everything, forget about it, i don't want any service." He said, "let me put you on hold....... OK i just spoke to my supervisor and we are going to wave the fee." I felt he was BSing me so i made sure to say, "so there will be no charge on my card besides 59.95 from dish or your retailer center correct?" he said yes... 4 days later, the 49.99 charge is there.. cant wait to see what their next move is, i called and they said they were going to listen to recording, i hope they don't try anything funny because i will ask for a copy of the recording and if they cant provide that and i don't get my money back... I always enjoy a day in court. :)

I was told they would listen to my recording also, they never replied. When I called them back they said they reviewed it and said I wasn't forced onto a contract. Every call is a different lie...

you're seriously dumb

Jan 17, 2013 #594651

There's no way in *** they would say that, you sign a 24mo agreement. There's no way out once you're installed, the PF does not get charged untill AFTER installation. I'm sure you were that person who requested for the recording to be checked and once they called you with the results it turned out that you were told, so you get mad and demand to listen to the recording and so you do...and you heard loud and clear where the sales rep tells you about the fee AND YOU STILL WANT TO B+#CH

PPL dont read or listen.

Everyone is happy when they know they are getting a deal. But then they seem to block out the rest off the pitch when they tell them about the hiiden fees/or dont read the fine print about the agreement or fees they have. Its is a contract you sign it?or agree on it on the phone so pay attention to what is says/or what they tell you bottom of the line. DUH
