Additional Notes

Complaint: I have make order for 12y of fabric and have paid for fabric and shipping. It was 87.88$ paid on January 07th. Thay have charged my on January 12th and January 16th for 67.92$ and 19.96$ without my knowledge. That makes total for 175.76$, that was not my ordering total. I make complain for it but I haven't got any answer for it. I hope they will return money on my credit cart.

Desired Settlement: They have to return 67.92$ and 19.96$ on my account.

Business Response: Dear Ms. ************
As we explained in prior communications which are attached, the charge is an authorization for $87.88.  An authorization is a reservation of funds made on behalf of our payment processor to your bank to verify funds are available.  This is a common practice in  e-commerce transactions.  As you stated, you were contacting your bank to verify this was an authorization.
Your package shipped in two parcels.  Parcel one on shipped 1/12 in the amount of $67.92.  Parcel two shipped 1/15 in the amount of $19.96.  This totals $87.88 for the order.  This is the only amount of money that has been deposited by Hancock's of Paducah.  
Please let us know what your bank finds with this transaction.  
We apologize for any confusion this may have caused.
Thank You,
***** *******

Additional Notes

Complaint: I spoke with a Representative and wanted to order through phone in first place to see what would be in stock to ship out. Representative did not want to do that and informs me the system representation of product in stock is accurate and wanted me to order it through there which I proceeded to. They were supposed to notify me of backorder before shipping anything. It is my right to make a decision to go through with the order or not. Order #: ******** ordered 05/16 When initially order. Only one item was informed to ship at a later date of 05 25 - ** ** ** *** *********** ****** ****** **** ******** *** and I was aware of this on site status I was then informed another item then was backorder item ** ** ** ***** *********** ****** ****** **** ******** ***** which I was not aware of. Spoke with ****** about this issue and he informs me that it will arrive soon and informs me I should have known and see that which I did not but I let it go because he state eveything else was shipping. I assumed they were shipping the other 3 items which he told me they would because there was a tracking number under status of order with FedEx. Now today 05/20. They emailed me again on this order and state another item was backordered and did not even give me a date and it is so odd ho now the tracking for that item has disappeared. ****** then now tells me their is no tracking even though clearly in order status there are tracking number. I do not like dealing with Dishonest people!! I also place another new order before being aware of all this during weekend on 05/19 and made sure I checked status before doing so. order ******** which also has more of the item now they have informed me was suddenly on backorder. I asked him to cancel this order too because I am tired of all these bad news and dishonesty and ****** tells me I cannot which I will because they have not fulfill their contract. My order placed is not as described. Their status has changed constantly and they take no responsibility. Really rude about it too accusing me of not doing my end. I place an order they authorize charge for the entire order even though they do not have majority of item. I have done more then my part. I feel that if people who are so arrogant stating they are big and their system is accurate and speaking with me as if I am being unreasonable needs to look at all that has transcend. I was shaking and in tears after I spoke with these people. It made me so angry to have people tell me that what I am seeing is bogus and I should know that. I cannot believe people can defend that sort of thing and arrogant to tell me that they will not cancel even though the new order will have issue too. He did not care . I do have the right to cancel if they cannot fulfill their part and that is just basic business. Why on earth anyone would even want to deal with each other again after this I have no idea. They know I will refuse the order if they ship short and I told them to notate my account of this before palcing any order. It is my right to go through with a problem order or not and decided not to especially after dealing with people whc has stressed me out accusing me of looking at bogus info and believing it. Incredible!! I have dealt with them in the past and it was not this sort of service. They sound desperate and very unethical! Understand that I trusted their system which they told me to and thought I was nits to question it and then all this happened. If you place an order and get like about 300% of what your order and get like nibbles off the order where now it looks like a skeleton then I am sure you would not be happy. It is just plain wrong. WHen you tell people too bad and they will have to live with it no matter what you do is just UNACCEPTABLE!

Desired Settlement: They just need to cancel all my order and we can just finished and close this relationship. It is very Hostile and I will not accept anything from them. I would rather get a root canal then deal with these people again. It is not right!

I have emailed Ms. **** *****. This customer has been a real trying case. She called last week and verbally abused two of our CSR's. I had spoken with her on Friday and thought I had cleared up the issue. She called today and a csr transferred her to me. She began to swear and I told her that I couldn't help her when she spoke in that way. She continued. I explained that our company could no longer help her. I have cancelled all of her pending orders. I have marked her customer record as an "unfavorable" customer. We will not be doing business with her in the future. **** *** ********* ******* **

**** *****


This business. Continues to put charges on my credit card without my authorization. I agree we should not do business. These people need to respect that statement and stop putting charges on account. I had to call my credit card company today to close down the credit card account because these people are using it to charge  even though they already state they will discontinue to do business.

As you can see clearly these people do not understand that you cannot charge unauthorized charges!

Right now they have decided to ship things that they told me was cancelled and continued to charge things .

It is abuse. I find no reason to be polite to people who are vindictive like this.

I have disputed the charge and anything sent to me will be refused. A contract when altered is no longer valid!


Business Response:

I am forwarding on an email received from **** *****.  This email provides an example of the offensive and abusive language that **** ***** used when speaking to me and to my employees.  I tried on three separate occasions to assist **** *****.  On this instance, on a Friday, I had explained that we were temporarily out of a fabric, but would be restocking it.  Her delivery would be in a week to ten days.  She seemed to accept my explanation on Friday.  However, on Saturday, this automated email reached her.  She called the office an verbally abused ******* ******.  ******* found me on the sale floor (she was upset) and asked for my help.  I reminded **** ***** of the explanation I had given her the day before about some items being temporarily out of stock.  She proceeded to curse at me, call me a liar, and to tell me that she would ruin our company's reputation.  I told her I was sorry but we would not continue to deal with a customer who would not communicate in a respectful way.  I have cleared out any items left outstanding for **** *****.  I do not intend to do business with her.

Complaint: I ordered 1 HOP K 12049 FQ Robert Kaufman Dessert Party 14.99 fat quarters 12 pcs The product they sent was totally different. It contained only 3 of the items from the Robert Kaufman Dessert Party the other 9 items that were sent were from an inferior group called Timeless Treasures. Totally different than what they had advertized. I assumed that I had gotten the correct order so washed the items before I realized what I had been sent. I contacted them and they said "too bad", no apology or anything. Not a good company!!>

Business Response: BBB, 

I have contacted ******* ******** and offered a full refund for the product in which she claims to be disappointed.

Consumer Response:

I have never been contacted by Hancocks in regards to my complaint about refunding my money. I would gladly accept the refund.

I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID 9496418, and find that this resolution would be satisfactory to me.  I will wait for the business to perform this action and, if it does, will consider this complaint resolved.
