Adelphia Makes Customer Pay For Porn She Never Ordered

There’s no vice more corrupt, more venal, more deserving of reproach, than porn.

Except for of course, being charged for porn you didn’t even get to watch.

Priscilla’s letter of pornographic woe and subsequent plea for help, after the jump…


Priscilla writes:

“I have my cable through Adelphia. My problem is that they (Adelphia) is saying someone in my household is ordering Adult Title movies. I know for a fact one of the early mornings order was not true. I called and they say its done through the remote. So I put a block on ordering movies, pay-per-view, on demand anywhere movies can be ordered. I even blocked the adult channels. I changed my PIN in case someone is ordering and denying it.

Anyway the problem is when I call to see what box (we have 3 boxes) it was ordered off of they say theres no way of knowing. They can’t prove someone ordered it and I can’t prove we didn’t. So now they say I’m liable to pay. These orders just show up on my bill. I mentioned if people can steal cable then theres probably a way someone can be ordering those movies and it shows up on my bill. They say there is no way someone from outside could be ordering it. Any suggestions….?”
