Buyer Beware, Part 3

Monday, we noted concerns about AT&T and DirecTV contracts and early cancellation fees. Those concerns are apparently not isolated to one family but shared among several.

Case in point:

Elizabeth Koziatek, of St. Charles, plans to cancel her DirecTV service this week, but she’s wrangling with the company over whether she should be on the hook for a $240 cancellation fee. She bought U-Verse on Aug. 14, and she said representatives at both AT&T and DirecTV assured her she wouldn’t pay a penalty to cancel her existing satellite service
