Additional Notes

Complaint: On March 25, 2014 myself, brother, and his girlfriend stopped at the Trees of Mystery for a tour thru the trees. When we arrived at the gate it clearly reads, BE PREPARED TO PAY AFTER YOUR TOUR. We entered thru the gate and made it to the first turn around is, 2-3 min of walking when around 30 other customers came up behind us. My brother who is a veteran with P.T.S.D. couldn't handle the crowd, so we turned around and left thru the exit gate. When we arrived at the pay station we explained the situation and was told we still need to pay. I asked to speak to a manager when she arrived, explained the story again. The manager argued with me that we knew by entering thru the gate we would have to pay. I stated that was not what the sign read and that we were unsatisfied with the service and were upset with being expected to pay. She told me she would call security, to which I replied " please do, I'd gladly be escorted out of your store for not paying for a tour I didn't get." At this time my brother was even more anxious with everything building up, that he handed the woman 45.00 and walked out. I filled out a comment card for them letting the business know how unsatisfied we were. Product_Or_Service: tour thru the Trees of Mystery

Desired Settlement: DesiredSettlementID: Refund The price for 3 adults at 15.00 a piece is 45.00

Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 5, 2014/04/21) */ To whom, The story in the complaint sounds different than the report submitted here. However, I believe there was some misunderstanding on both sides and would be willing to send a refund. Initial Consumer Rebuttal /* (2000, 7, 2014/04/22) */ (The consumer indicated he/she ACCEPTED the response from the business.) Consumer Response /* (-5, 10, 2014/05/12) */ Today's date is May12, 2014 and I have since 10:40pm not recevied a refund. Consumer Response /* (-5, 12, 2014/06/24) */ As of June,XX XXXX, I have not received the agreed upon payment of $45.00. Consumer Response /* (-5, 13, 2015/01/07) */ My name is ********* *****, The date of closure for this case has been over 6 months and I still have not recieved payment from Trees of Mysterys. Business Response /* (2600, 17, 2015/01/20) */ A check has been mailed to the address on record with the complaint. Consumer Response /* (-5, 19, 2015/01/22) */ I have not received payment for this dispute. If Trees of mystery had honored the claim they should be able to show a bank statement showing the funds being removed. I did not cash a check from the business because they haven't sent one. I'd bet my whole bank account they have no proof the case was honored.
