Additional Notes

Complaint: We filled out paperwork with ******* ******** ** March 2012. He informed us that we would receive a check by June or July 2012. We received a notice, dated August 18, 2012, that the company was awaiting for Cook County to issue the refund checks. In March of 2013, we still had no funds. I called ******* and he said he would look into it, and he called me back, claiming that that Cook County was behind, and I needed to fill out an affidavit that we had not received our money. I received the affidavit over four weeks later, and I signed it and mailed it back to the company, as instructed. By November 2013, we still had received nothing. I called ******* again, but a man named **** answered and said that ******* was no longer employed there. I explained the situation to ****, and he said that our check had been sent to us, but it had never been cashed, so he would have another check cut, which would take approximately two weeks. He would call me when the check was ready, and he said he would deliver the check to us at our home to ensure that it was not lost. On Dec. 5, **** left a message on my voicemail that he was out of town but that my check was in and that he would deliver the check at my convenience. I was not available until after the week of the 21st, so I called to make arrangements. **** said he could deliver the check to our home on Dec. 26. I agreed and thanked him. On Dec. 26, **** called to say he was still on vacation with his family, and he could deliver the check on Monday, Dec. 30. At 10:37 a.m. on Dec. 30, I called **** to see what time he would be at our home. I called his office number, but there was only an answering machine. I called his cellphone and left a message, but he did not call back. An hour later, as I sit typing this, my husband called **** from a different number, and **** answered immediately. My husband asked **** when he would arrive, and **** said he would be here in the afternoon, by 2:30 p.m.

Desired Settlement: I want the money the business has promised us, and I want them out of my life. That is it. If the check is delivered by 2:30, I will downgrade my complaint from "Failure to honor a contract" to "Customer Service," but I will not withdraw this complaint. I work two jobs; my husband is a full-time pharmacy student and part-time student pharmacist, and we have three small children. We do not have time for this aggravation. This company cold-called us we did not seek them out and their service has been lip service only.
