Additional Notes

Complaint: I had a mice in my house and in the attic, and I got a advertising call fromrelaint pest so my husband asked them about the mice treatment and they told him with the regular pest control and rodent treatment the total will be $99.99, we agreed and set up the service. On dec 29th he came and started regular pest control than i asked him that we also have requested for rodent service which he was not aware of it and i said they had told $99.99 for both , he passed acomment that he was not being told and $99.99 is very low for both services than he called and said he will do it, but i know as he was being told he didn't got anything for rodent treatment ,he just sprayed regular pest control and set 3 glue boards 2 in garage 1 in thekitchen and those glue boards were of no use , I asked him what about rest of the house and attic ,he went to attic and than put 2 baits and thats what i can do it . As i was not happy with his service my husband called the customer service and they repleid the lady who had setup your service is not here and she will call you back tommorow ,we waited for their call but nobody called so than we asked our bank to stop the check and we paid $30 as payment stop fee after a week manager calledobvoisly as they didn't get the payment, that lady never called back,but still my husband agreed that ok send somebody again and ask him to do it properly and i will but deduct the stop payment fee which i had to pay to bank. after that no one called back to set up the appointment and now today i recieved the letter which says that within 10 days if we don't pay they will refer our matter to criminal prosecution. I don't get this am I at any fault or what

BBB Response:


On December 12th, 2012, our technician *********** ******** went to Mr. ************’s home for a pest control treatment.  Our technician did a general service inside and outside the home for all field crawling insects and also a rodent service in which 5 glue boards were placed and placed bait also in the attic.  The amount charged for this service was $99.95 plus tax totaling $108.20.   The technician had already discounted the service since our General is $49.95 and the Rodent service is normally $65.00, giving the customer $15 off the service.  Customer paid by check number 484 at the time of service but put in a stop payment on the check.  The owner, ******* *********** called the customer and explained that we would willing come back out to his home at no extra charge, give him more glue boards if needed because we wanted to make him happy but he would need to pay for the service in which he put a stop payment.  The customer agreed.  The customer service representative called him several times to try and get him set up but would not answer the phone.  Finally, after some time, a letter was sent trying to collect payment.  I feel this customer just did not want to pay for services rendered and refuses to let us try and please him.  We did all we could do without further help from this customer.

Consumer Response:


[To assist us in bringing this matter to a close, we would like to know your view on the matter.]

Foremost Reliant Pest  had service package for$99.99 + tax and  there was no additional discount  as per se . Since We were not happy with service we called back on same day and they never respondedfor couple of days leading us to make stop payment incurring 30$ toward Bank charges for stop payment. As soon as stop payment done they responded ( what a miserable customer service).

 

Now that we did agree for the re-service again  for $108.20 less 30$ =  $78.20 as per discussion with Reliant Pest manager. We are all set to get reservice done and pay $78.20 .I dont see any call neither any Voicemail  so we cant be responsible for it. Please have them call at my cell 2143165931 to schedule 90 day warranty service at $78.20 and get done with it, if they still want tocall at my home number let them leave voicemail.

 

Please be assure that we are ready for the re-service. We dont have any ill-intention for not making payment if service and customer expirience would have been good.

 

Regards,
