Dish Notice About Potential Fraud

Just got an email from Dish stating the following:

Quote:
Dear xxxxx,

Recently several DISH customers have reported that people claiming to be representatives of DISH have contacted them in an attempt to collect money for special promotions or upgrades. We have discovered that these callers are often asking for credit card numbers or requesting payments via Western Union or Green Dot.

This message is to remind you that DISH will never call you asking for this or any other personal information or information related to your DISH account. If you receive a call requesting a payment in exchange for a promotion or upgrade, we encourage you to disconnect the call and contact us directly at 800-333-DISH (800-333-3474).

As a reminder, the forms of payment that DISH accepts are:
•Credit card
•Debit card
•Electronic funds transfer
•Check by mail
•Cash through any retail store that offers:
•MoneyGram Express Payments
•IPP (In Person Payments)
•PreCash
•CheckFreePay
•ACE Cash Express
•Western Union Prepaid Services*



*If you make a payment through Western Union, you will receive a 10-digit Money Transfer Control Number (MTCN). DISH will never ask for this number.

Thank you for being a valued DISH customer.



FYI Fellow IRV2'rs

I just received that notice, too. I don't know how they could contact me with a scam unless Dish was somehow hacked? But they didn't say that. Dang it, I hope I don't have to close accounts that I have used to pay Dish.

I guess this means I won't be getting the 200 channels of 24 hour porn.
