Hiya all :-)

On the 5th of this month I ordered an ipod and head phone set online paid in full straight away..

 

It was advertised on the tv.

 

.BUT on the 10th I received a box and in that box was some one elses computer ink and details

 

..I was NOT happy and took the box containing the ink back to pcworld ..

 

They then said nothing like this has ever happened before and

 

I was spoke to someone on the phone who said they would need to investigate what had happened .

 

.Since then I have called them and been into pcworld and emailed also only to be met with the same old "we are still investigating"

yet they have ADMITTED it was THEIR fault

 

..and that a mix up had happened yet I still havent received any goods

 

..I have not spoken to the same person more than once and get met with the same .

 

..I feel well and truly fobbed off .

 

.On Wednesday this week i was told I MIGHT get a delivery yet the day after told nooo we are still investigating BUT they KNOW what has gone wrong .

 

... So last night that being the 21st I had had enough! so I asked for a refund and was told NOPE sorry I CANNOT refund you your money

as "we are STILL investigating !!

 

I just do not know what else to do??

 

any ideas please !!

Incredible story.

 

The only thing to do is to send them a 7 day LBA - setting out what has happened, what you want and giving them 7 days to provide you with the refund or you will sue.

 

The sue.

Don't hang around. Don't discuss or accept promises - just do it.

It is very easy, cheap, risk free - and when you win - or more likely when they settle you will get all of your claim fee back.

Add £50 for the inconvenience and you will get that too. Don't accept vouchers.

 

If you aren't prepared to do this, then don't make threat but settle in for a long frustrating wait.

LBA = Letter Before Action, explaining that you WILL take court action should you not get a satisfactory response.

Bit more extreme but this worked for me against a certain well known mobile phone chain, if you are feeling brave.

 

 

 

I ordered a replacement external aerial for an Ericsson phone from their website.

 

Part arrived, it was for the wrong phone.

 

I rang their Internet 'customer service' and told the guy that I had been sent the wrong part and that it was thus advertised incorrectly on their site.

 

His response was "What do you want me to do about it?"

 

I asked if I could be sent the correct part, again I got "What do you want me to do about it?"

 

So I headed directly down to their local branch and asked to speak to the Manager.

 

They were reluctant to go and get him so I raised my voice so all of the customers in the shop could hear me and started to recount the incident and emphasised the call centre bloke's words, the Manager was there like a shot, I got a refund for the part, a profuse apology and he did all he could to try and track the correct part.

 

 

I work within a software technical support environment and inwardly sigh when customers tell me they have had dealings with pcworld.

Indeed, as someone else mentioned though, a chargeback or threat of one is also a good weapon.

 

I bought a custom built PC and monitor on an RBS issued Mastercard

 

The PC arrived and the system builder indicated I should report any transit damage within 24 hours.

 

Plugged the LCD monitor in and it was completely dead.

 

Rang the company and told them I could obviously not test the system without a monitor so asked for a refund on the monitor and I would go and purchase one, they booked a courier for the following Thursday

 

Selected one in the local PC World (I am a tech support professional so know what I'm looking for), got it home and hooked it up, system was fine and exactly as ordered.

 

Courier came on the Thursday and uplifted the dead monitor, I waited a month for the refund onto my card, nothing.

 

Rang the company who confirmed they had the dead monitor in their warehouse, put through to accounts and told another 7 days.

 

Waited and still no refund, phoned again back through to accounts and asked where the 178 quid for the monitor was, told "Our accounts department has far more important things to deal with than your refund"

 

Oh really I thought so rang RBS and told them, they put me through to a department that deals with chargebacks who told me to simply send through all the documentation regarding the purchase and they would handle it.

 

Phoned the accounts department back and told them they had 5 working days to refund the card otherwise I'd turn the matter over to the card company to deal with.

 

On the third working day I check the online account for the card and there's a refund.

I never buy anything online using anything other than a credit card as companies don't tend to want to pee off the credit card companies and it means you are not out of pocket if something does not turn up or something goes wrong.
