And, remember that legitimate companies like DirecTV will never ask their customers to send personal information, account information, financial information via an email message.

DIRECTV customers who have already been tricked by the scam are asked to contact DIRECTV for help and contact their banks if they have disclosed their credit card information. Also, those DIRECTV customers should be careful going forward because online scammers will be contacting them and will attempt to scam them.

    It is not only e-mail scams now. They actually are visiting houses.

    The day after my DirecTV Service call they came to my house. My Mother called me and told me that 2 guys from DirecTV were coming to visit me. I didn't think to look at their vehicle. If I remember correctly, two gentlemen had on DirecTV golf-type shirts, landyards with company logos, etc., and knowledge of the service visit the day before. They were very professional. One man talked who was very knowledgeable about DirecTV. After talking about my problem they gave me a flyer with DirecTV logo on it and the email address VIP@gnetworks.onmicrosoft.com. This is when I became somewhat suspicious. I then looked at their ID cards. Nowhere was DirecTV. Only Goodman Networks. They very calmly told me that their company was hired to do these customer support follow-up visits. After they left, I called DirecTV, but they told me that they did not send these people to my house and to call the police which I did. There had been no other complaints filed previously.

    I have no idea why they came to my house other than to scope it out to come back to steal stuff. That is the way I am treating it.
