Still free TV
It's been almost a year since I've moved to my apartment, and I have yet to receive a single TV or Internet bill. No kidding.
Now, the thing is, I am an Orbit subscriber and I now want to switch to Showtime (I couldn't do it before because they wanted me to pay Dhs 500 to switch before the end of my contract). And now I am worried that, when I do make the switch, they'll find out about my year-long free ride and that they'll charge me for the past 12 months.
I am not being dishonest. I did mention my bill-less problem to Sahm/DIC a couple of times, and I was told "not to worry". And I do get my phone bills, so I know that I exists somewhere on their system. Is there no one to track these things?
And if I do get 12 months' worth of payments due all at once, is there any sort of regulation protecting me? I mean, if I were running a company here, and my supplier did not send me any invoices in over a year, then I would simply not pay him...it's his loss! Is it the same situation here?
What should I do? Any advice?
