SPOT IS A DISHONEST COMPANY- BEST TO AVOID!!!

Post by CAMERONM » Thu Sep 05, 2019 4:13 pm

Several years ago when I bought my SPOT device, I was promised a rebate that never came. It many calls to an almost non-existent customer service to finally get my rebate. Then I sold my device two years ago and cancelled my plan, but no amount of cancellation calls to SPOT or credit card disputes will stop them from billing me every year. I believe that this is a deliberate billing strategy instituted by a failing company. So I advocate avoiding SPOT, and if you have done business with them in the past, check your credit card statements!!!

Register a complaint with the BBB and have your credit card replaced with new numbers.

I know, its probably old-school. I have heard about "twitter-storms" but alas have no direct experience.
