Welcome to the DIRECTV Fraud Awareness and Prevention Center

We’re committed to helping you beat fraudsters at their own game – that starts with empowering you. Here you’ll find tools to help you report fraud, file an identity theft claim, and stay on top of some of the latest scam trends. Fraudsters impersonate businesses across every industry, but when it comes to DIRECTV, know this:
  • We will never ask you to pay up front for discounted services, to activate promotions or to upgrade your existing equipment.
  • We will never include links to third-party websites in payment confirmation emails.
