    The last couple of days I've been receiving emails from Sirius (or a damn good fake) telling me how I'm receiving a free three month trial. ( I cancelled my radios back at the end of the first contract.) Then in the small print it tells me how I have to cancel the trial before the end of the three months or they will bill my credit card for the next month. This is bullshit, right? I didn't ask for their shitty service back and I have no intention of spending my time on the phone dealing with assholes to not be chaged for more Sirius all these years later. Can't be legal- although we've seen in the past that Sirius has a distorted view of what legal is.

    Anyone else ever get this shit?

    I would cancel any credit card in which they have the number and expiration date. They will put a charge on it. We found this out the first year of having sirius. About a month before the contract was up, they put a $1.00 charge on the card - probably just to see if it was still in effect. My husband caught it, we called and they admitted that that is what they do so they can just bill it. We cancelled the card and will never give them another one.

    Yeah getting the same emails. If you have to cancel after 3 months or get charged I won't bother.

    To make this clear, I have not asked for not am I interested in any free trial. I don't even know where I threw the old radios after I walked away from Howie and his shitty show. If they are telling me I am getting some kind of free three months but they're going to start charging me after that, that's illegal.

    I did it way back when, got 3 months free, then cancelled. Just make sure you cancel or change your credit card! Those fuckers won't stop!!!

    I've been getting them, but I have no idea what they're about. I just deleted them after I chucked them to Spam. :hhh:

    Bought a new truck last fall and after the free 6 months (maybe listened 10 minutes - the music quality is reprehensible). I had to block 3 different toll free numbers from these jackholes to keep them from hounding me.

    I received this same e-mail today. In (un?)related news, the stock is down more than 25% from it's recent high of $4.18.

    I used HighPitchErik's email address when I had Sirius so I really hope they are sending out weird emails, the more annoying the better.
