i bought a CPU from a well know online store and the item was fautly so i got an RMA number and sent it back (it was collected by the stores couriers)

 

now my item went missing for 2 weeks and they first claimed it got delivered to the wrong address

 

after they finally received the items they rejected the returns on the grounds that the CPU had physical damage (they said the heat spreader isn't attached)

 

i tried to explain that it didn't show any physical damage when i sent it back and that the damage could have occurred while the parcel was missing for 2 weeks

 

they then backtracked and said the parcel wasn't missing and it was at the depot during the 2 weeks

 

i don't believe them because as soon after the item was collected i tracked it and it was showing and delivered and signed for and why would that be if its been at the depot the whole time

 

what are my rights in this case

Insist that there was no damage when it was collected from you and the driver signed without noting any damage.

Send a copy of the tracking to discredit there story asking why it shows delivered to them but they are claiming it was at the depot.

Is it an intel chip and if so did you send it back with the plastic cover?

Cheap chip or a pricey chip ?!

 

You could argue that if you're a regular customer, you'll now be thinking of taking your custom elsewhere. If they're really "well known", you could try adding some "I wonder what people will think of this" to your letter/e-mail. If you have solid proof that the item was back at their premises in good time and that the driver signed for it in good condition, then I think they'll cave in.

 

It's funny how many stores have their "un-checked" T+Cs when signing for stuff, but hate it when it's used against them :)

Claim against the couriers imo, as the problem seems to be with them its not the retailers fault that the box was damaged.

How much of this exchange have you got in writing?

Claim against the store. It is their courier.

On reflection (and I should have posted this 2 days ago) I agree with BankFodder in the sense of its their courier so it would be them who had the contract with them.

thanks for all the help but its kind of resolved now

the manufacturer has agreed to replace the item

 

I'm still annoyed tho and don't want the store to get away with it :mad:
