A North Carolina man received an unexpected $ 70 charge after his poodle, a bichon frisé, mistakenly ordered an adult service on his home’s satellite TV. According to reports from the Mirror, the animal would have jumped on the remote control in a moment of distraction of the owner and would have completed the operation by pressing the buttons at random. Barnes, who resides in the Raleigh area, had to contest the charge to the supplier.
Despite having made several embarrassing phone calls to tell the bizarre story, the man – assured over the phone that the charge would be lifted – still saw the request for payment delivered. The channel remained active. When it came time to pay the TV bill, Barnes paid his subscription fee without paying the $ 70 required. In response, the supplier has stopped the entire service for him.
“It’s like they’re taking food out of my mouth,” he said. “It’s like they’re robbing me,” she added, taking her complaint to the Federal Communications Commission, which was able to get a response from some bigwigs at DirecTV, the service provider. After the government agency intervened, the company finally agreed to credit Barnes and leave the affair behind.
