Hi Everyone


I was wondering if anyone else has had problems with unreasonable online shops my latest gripe is with BooHoo.com although I havehad similar problems with NewLook.com.




I am wondering what consumer protection rights I have under UK consumer protection law regarding internet transactions in the following case:




In the early hours of Sunday morning (today) 04/03/2012 Imade a purchase from an online clothing store. I entered my billing address(the address I no longer have access to since the 13th of February) and my delivery address that I wanted my items dispatched to.




However this information was ignored/overlooked and I got an automated email at 3:29am stating that my items would be delivered to my billing address. Within 5 minutes I was emailing the store to bring this errorto their attention and my email was acknowledged as received at 3:50am. I asked the store to correct the error as I have no access to this address and to deliver it to the address I am at now as had been originally requested!




I then received an email from the store at 15:39 confirming dispatch to my billing address then at 16:15 they only then conveniently deigned to reply to my email stating that since my order was"completed" they were unable to amend it however I could return the items for a refund!




I have since emailed them back explaining that I do not have access to my registered card billing address (it was a temporary address andI've recently moved) and that I have little faith in the occupiers of this address handing my goods over to me. I explained that it is incoherent to suggest I return goods that I can't ever even receive due to their error for a refund I don't even want! (I just want my goods) I then suggested they either demand a signature on receipt from the current occupiers for both their own protection and mine or just send the parcel to me whereupon I can sign for it myself as originally requested.




Also how can this be such a huge problem to rectify on a Sunday when Royal mail postal workers don't even work?!




I believe they are being deliberately unreasonable/inept since they had ample and reasonable time to amend this error but instead decided to dispatch anyway and ignore my email request for correct delivery from 12 hours previously. I have also pointed this out to them.




So far I am still awaiting a reply




Could anyone please tell me where I stand and what recourse I have?


Incidentally I have also informed them of my intention to take them to the small claims court


Thanks for reading:-)
