Complaint: I have requested to be removed from Larry Miller advertising mailing lists multiple times over a 1 year time frame.I have spoken to the marketing director ********** ******** *** **** ***** in Boise starting last fall. I requested to be removed from the list. He said he would do so. I had a really NASTY experience with the service department there a year ago May 2012. I have NEVER had such a customer experience with any company ever in my life. It was so dramatic that I never want anything from this company again. I again received mailers wanting to buy my car in Feb. I called and left **** a message to remove me from the list again.I got mailers again in March and April. Again I called and left **** a message to remove me from the mailing list. I got more requests to buy my car throughout the summer. I called again. I got another service mailer a week ago. I had told **** if I received anymore after my Spring call to him I would report the company to the BBB for mailing harrasment.I know it takes a while to get off the list but a year is plenty of time. Now I am writing to you about it. If I get another mailer-I am going to contact the Attorney General's office with my complaint.Thank you
Desired Settlement: Just to be removed from the mailing list. Evidently my requesting it isn't going to work. Maybe you can make them understand I am serious.
I am responding to complaint ********, ******* *******. It is addressing the issue of receiving multiple mail pieces from the dealership. We have removed her from our customer retention software. We have removed her information from our database. We use many third party companies for our direct mail campaigns and we are unable to control where their lists are generated from. There are also other Larry H. Miller stores that also send out direct mail and I have no jurisdiction of the other stores. We will continue to work on any avenue to make sure she is not receiving any mail directly from us. She can contact me if she receives any more mail and I will look at the piece and find out where it is derived from. As always, I appreciate your help on this matter.
BBB's Final Determination: Business offered a resolution. Consumer did not pursue further with BBB and the matter was assumed to be resolved
