Scam Description

Gentlemen called talking really really fast stating he was calling from DirectTV and the caller ID showed DirectTV as well. He stated he was calling to offer us free movie channels 524-542 because we were some longtime customers of DTV. Only thing we had to do was watch there was no additional cost and we didn’t have to call and cancel at the added channels. Once we got home of course there were no free channels and I ended up calling DTV and they didn’t know anything about it. Tried calling the number back and of course now they didn’t answer and now the does not show up as DirectTV. Scam Alert!!!
