The registered agent of any corporation licensed to do business in a state must be registered with the Secretary of State. Most Secretaries of State or state corporations' divisions offices now have their filings available online. In FL you can go to http://www.sunbiz.org/search.html to look up the name of the registered agent by company name.
You can also call the corporations division to ask them at http://www.sunbiz.org/corp_dir.html
I just looked up, under corporate name, both "direct tv" and "direc tv" and found lots of listing.
Did you try looking up information for "DirectTV" as a "ficticious" name or trademark?
A ficticious name is XXXXX XXXXX company can call itself, even if their registered corporate name isXXXXX
Do you still have your contract by any chance? I live in CA and just looked at my contract from Direct TV and found the agent.
My suggestion would be to call 1-866-535-9593, this is the number to obtain service from Direct TV in Englewood, FL.
When you call, ask to speak to a manager who can provide you with the name of the registered agent in your area.
From what I can tell, Englewood FL Dish Network and Cable TV handles Direct TV for your area.
Can you tell me a bit more about what you are trying to accomplish? If you could provide me with some detailed information related to this situation, I may have some better ideas related to how you might obtain assistance.
You have mentioned a small claims suit, but for what reason?
Direct TV is owned by DirecTv Group in California.
My suggestion would be to call or write to the corporate headquarters
2230 E. Imperial Highway, El Segundo, CA 90245
I signed a contract with Direct TV and was supposed to obtain a free iPod. When I signed up the promotion was similar to yours, but included NFL Sunday free.
The terms of my contract was that if I cancelled NFL Sunday, I would not receive the iPod. In my situation, I was not alloed to make changes to my contract for four months and also not cancel the NFL Sunday for one year.
Read your contract closely, there would have to be a clause that states something similar to " should you cancel your contract, this offer does not apply" "The DVD player will be delivered upon completion of terms of the contract"
Before you can sue them for false advertising, you must closely read all the small print.
AS I SAID BEFORE,THERE WAS NO SIGNED CONRACT!!! BOY, YOU SURE ARE DISCOURAGING IN YOUR REPLY. THANKS BUT NO THANKS
I am trying to assist you and want to make sure you did not sign a contract.
What did the "paperwork " state? If you returned "paperwork" agreeing to the terms and there was a clause that you had to could not cancel within 30 days, this would be the reason for them to not extend the free DVD player, etc.
If you could tell me more about what the paperwork said, I might be able to help you to sort this out.
