Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 5, 2014/08/01) */ We apologize the customer was unable to access our website. Our website's hosting company was experiencing a technical issue with their servers which took our website offline temporarily. This type of incident rarely, if ever, occurs and was out of our control. The issue has since been resolved, and the customer has accessed the directory online.

Additional Notes

Complaint: After purchasing the product I researched for the companies listed and found that one of the suppliers was selling non authentic products. I have contacted V.A.B. Ventures, LLC after finding out through **************************** about one of the suppliers listed by the name of ********. V.A.B. Ventures, LLC, states that all the suppliers listed on his website are legitimate suppliers that sells authentic products and is not true. I'd indicated on my email for V.A.B. Ventures, LLC to look into this company, because according to the reviews is a fraudulent and a scammed company. I have not yet received a reply from V.A.B. Ventures, LLC and at this point I want a full refund since I can't trust a site like this to purchase from for my store. I am not completely satisfied with this service and this company offers a 60 Day Money Back Guarantee.

Desired Settlement: I am seeking a full refund of $39.95, since I don't wish to use none of these suppliers. I don't trust the fact that there is a negative review about one of the suppliers and nothing has been done. Even after I contacted V.A.B. Ventures, LLC and nothing has been done. Imagine if I was to purchase from this supplier and the supply was all fake; then what? I rather not take that chance. I NEED A FULL REFUND IN THE AMOUNT OF $39.95 ASAP.

Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 5, 2013/09/14) */ We have no record of receiving an email from this customer about this or any other issue. After receiving this complaint, we reached out to the customer via telephone. Our call was never returned. The suppliers in our directory are legitimate and sell authentic merchandise. The customer found a negative review online for a supplier listed in our directory, assumed it to be valid, and concluded that this supplier sells non-authentic goods. However, the negative review was written by a disgruntled former employee of the supplier and is in fact false. The supplier in question can prove the authenticity of their merchandise by furnishing sanitized invoices which show that their merchandise is purchased directly from the designers themselves. What's more, this particular supplier is one of the most solid suppliers in this industry. They have been thoroughly screened--as have all our suppliers--and used by hundreds of our members for years without any complaints, whatsoever. The customer was fully refunded on 9/4/13 immediately after receiving this complaint. We regret not having the chance to address this with the customer directly. We would have gladly explained this situation to them.
