Complaint: I purchased a 72 " Samsung Smart tv along with a extra warrant contract with the purchase. I ave contacted the dealer several times both by phone and email. I have yet to receive the warranty I purchased together with the tv which of course was promised to be delivered at the time of of the purchase. I have been asked for the order number which I do not have as it was stored on a computer that I no longer have. I have referred them to the credit charge transaction which I do have but still have not received the warranty. When referred to the warranty company they said there was no contract without an order number. Meanwhile I do not have the warranty on a purchase I made a year agonr do I have the approximately $400 that was paid for the contract.

Desired Settlement: Produce the warranty contract or refund the purchase price.

Additional Notes

Complaint: I ordered a large Sony TV with a 5 year warranty on June ***. When ordering over the phone with *****, ext ***, he gave me the company name, Consumer Priority Service. After I hung up I immediately did some research on this company and found they had an astonishing amount of negative coverage and was unable to find their terms and conditions anywhere online. I called back within an hour of ordering and asked for my money back on the warranty. I was given a hard time and eventually settled with talking with the warranty company the next day. I was assured they would call AND I specifically asked if I would receive a refund if I still didn't want the warranty, in which ***** said YES. No one called Monday so I called ***** at 4:30PM Monday and again asked for my money back. Again, I received the run around and was told I would receive some documentation about the warranty when I received my TV the coming Friday. The next day, Tuesday, I received an email saying my warranty had been registered. Why would my warranty be registered when I had called twice to cancel it already? Shortly after that I received a call from a representative from the warranty company and I asked her all of my prepared questions. She answered most of them but was unable to answer all of them. She said she could email me the terms and conditions, which she did. I thanked her for her time and hung up with her. I decided to wait until Friday to check out the documents that ***** told me would be coming with the TV. Friday came, the TV was delivered and NOWHERE was there any papers about a warranty. I called ***** shortly after the TV arrived and told him I wanted my refund. He tried to tell me that the warranty company told him that I was happy with their warranty. I don't know who is lying but I never told the woman on the phone that I wanted the warranty and never would without reading the terms and conditions first. ***** said that he would immediately work on getting me a refund and said I would have it within 1 week or less. That was Friday June ****. Today is June **** and I have yet to receive a refund. The main reason I don't want this warranty is because they do not cover 100% of the TV. If the Software inside the TV is found to be the problem, they do not cover it at all.

Desired Settlement: Full refund, $399.00 to be exact.

Business Response: The warranties are registered electronically with CPS when the TV ships out. There is no paperwork involved.

Your TV shipped on 1/*/14 (not June!) and the warranty was registered on 1/*/14 as well - the same day you placed your order.
As per our clearly stated policy on our website:

********************************************************

Return Policy for Extended Warranties

Extended warranties which are purchased are strictly non-returnable and non-refundable due to the fact that each warranty is preregistered with the product serial number of the item purchased.  Once you purchase the warranties and they are preregistered, they are not cancellable/returnable under ANY circumstances.


Thanks, have a great day.


All Time TVs



Consumer Response: Better Business Bureau:

I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID# *******, and have determined that my complaint has NOT been resolved because:

1. As indicated in the first message, I tried to cancel the warranty within 1 hour of my order and this was BEFORE SHIPMENT and WARRANTY REGISTRATION.

Pertinent Call/Email History which I have on file:

2:08PM EST 1/*/2014 - Started phone Order via ###-###-####

3:00PM EST 1/*/2014 - Called back to Cancel the Extended Warranty after reading horrendous reviews. (See first message about what happened and the lies I was told)

5:14PM EST 1/*/2014 - Received Shipment email. (Odd it shipped on a Sunday Evening)

NEVER received ANY email from AllTimeTVs about warranty registration.

3:10AM EST 1/*/2014 - Received an email from CPS about the registration of the Extended Warranty.

2. AllTimeTVs had knowledge that I wanted to cancel BEFORE SHIPMENT and REGISTRATION but still went ahead and registered the warranty anyways.

3. I was lied to NUMEROUS times by the Phone *****man called *****, according to the information from AllTimeTVs BBB message. I'll cover the pertinent lies only:

a. First lie: ***** ****** ***** telling me that he would refund me my money if I did not agree to the CPS Extended Warranty terms (Delay tactic). This was within 1hr of my order AND before anything shipped or was registered.

b. Second lie: ***** ****** ***** told me over the phone that I would receive documents about the warranty with the TV (Delay tactic).

c. Third lie: ***** ****** ***** told me over the phone that I would receive a refund with 1 week or less.

4. This was a phone order that I called in and:

a. At no time was I informed of ANY of their policies except to check the TV before signing for it.

b. At no time during my phone order was I directed to a website to READ and/or verbally OR electronically agree to anything, period.

c. At no time on the phone was I read any terms and conditions pertaining to any product in the order.

5. At no time was I given a chance to review the Extended Warranty terms and conditions so that I would agree or disagree over the phone with AllTimeTVs.

6. After CPS called me and emailed me the Terms and Conditions, I called ***** to tell him to cancel the Extended Warranty for the 3rd time. This time he finally agreed and said I would have a refund within 1 WEEK OR LESS. It's now been almost 1 MONTH.

NOTICE to AllTimeTVs, I will be sending a letter and all correspondents from the BBB.org website to the NYS Attorney General **** ************, the US Attorney General **** ****** and the FCC if I don't receive a refund as was told by your ************* *****.

 

 

 

 

In order for the BBB to appropriately process your response, you MUST answer the question above.


Sincerely,

******* *******

Additional Notes

Complaint: I placed an online order for LG 47" TV (model number - 47LA7400, Black LED Cinema 3D Smart HDTV) on Nov **, 2013. Amount paid was $ 1116.08. Defective/broken TV was delivered on Dec **, 2013 through fedex (front screen was broken from upper right side). Then I contacted customer service and they agreed to arrange pick-up of defective TV and then also to arrange refund after they get the TV. On Dec 11, AllTimeTVs arranged pick up of TV (through fedex only). After around week's time, these guys confirmed to receive the TV and process the refund claim. Since then we have been regularly chasing their customer service (with interval of few days) to process the refund but every time they say it is stuck somewhere in the processing and should be done in a week's time. Even now days, it is hard to contact them through their customer service number (***********) as well. Have been really tired and frustrated after chasing them plenty of times and still no resolution. Now looking for your help to get this resolved ASAP. Thanks.

Desired Settlement: Refund all the paid money back to my credit card

Business Response: The claim is still open with FedEx.

As per our policy, the refund will be processed when FedEx approves and pays the damage claim.
Thanks, have a great day.

Consumer Response: Better Business Bureau:

I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID# *******, and have determined that my complaint has NOT been resolved because:

[Your Answer Here]

AlltimeTVs is still saying the claim is pending with Fedex (their internal matter/process) and not providing any date of refund (I had paid insurance amount also along with price). However, it is case of damaged TV delivered at first place so why do i need to suffer more from their internal process delays. They were not able to deliver the right TV at first place so they must refund my amount without any delays.

 

 

 

In order for the BBB to appropriately process your response, you MUST answer the question above.

Business Response: We are trying to get to the bottom of the matter with FedEx, we will investigate further and get back to the customer.

Have a nice day,

Additional Notes

Complaint: I made an order on January *, 2014, which was estimated to be delivered in 4-6 weeks, which did not happen. When contacted repeatedly through phone and emails, one or the other excuses were given. When the 5 weeks passed, they said over phone that since delivery could not be made as promised, they would issue full refund of the payment made for the order. Repeated phone call reminders were given, every time some excuse was given and a new promise was made that refund would be made tomorrow or in two days. All attempts to remind them through emails never resulted in any response. In the last conversation over the phone , the refund payment details were promised to be emailed the same day, which never happened. The latest is that their phone# ###-###-####, is disconnected, their other phone# ###-###-####, there is no response. I am afraid that they might have shutdown their business as I was not even able to make a new order through their online system (it was to confirm that they are in business or not).

Desired Settlement: I want all my money paid and expenses occurred in doing so (wire transfer fees) for my order #*******.

Additional Notes

Complaint: On January *, 2014 my wife and I placed a purchase through alltimetvs.com for a 60" Samsung TV UN60F7500(Order number *******). As per policy a follow up phone call came to me January *** at which point I added a 5 year extended warranty. A new receipt was sent out January ***, 2014 after speaking with salesman ****. On January **, 2014 an email was received that stated our order was cancelled and no reason was given. We then called the company and after being on hold for roughly 1.5 hours got to speak with someone that said they ran out of the TV and would be receiving more (this after their guarantee is that if on their website they have it and them confirming our purchase with me 1/*/14). They said once more were received they would honor our contract and ship the TV. For roughly two weeks we heard nothing and again called the office. Despite being number one on hold, it took over an hour before we got to speak with a customer service representative. They assured us the TVs were still on back order and it should only be another week. Again two weeks went by and we called again, again waiting almost an hour to speak with someone. They said that due to weather the TVs were delayed and that there should be no issue. in fact they gave us the contact name of ***** at their company and said we can email him anytime for updates. This past week, after still nothing from the company, my wife sent an email to that agent stating we were very dissatisfied and would notify the Better Business Beaureu if we were not contacted and guaranteed in writing we would recive the TV we were promised. We have heard no reply so I am notifying you not only of their terrible customer service and contact issues but of their reneging on a confirmed order.

Desired Settlement: I feel the business has the responsibility to own up to their failure, to explain to us why there has been such a breakdown and why it is so difficult to contact them, and that they honor our purchase. If they no longer have that TV then the Samsung UN60F8100 could be substituted as it is most similar.

Additional Notes

Complaint: I placed an order with "all time tv's" and they charged two different cards taking a totaling $1956.00. They said they cannot send me the tv due to the shipping address is different from the billing address. At that time they said they will refund the money to me. The tv order was placed 10/**/13 and it cleared my account on 11/*/13. I've spoke to several *******s after being told by ***** ****** (*******)"to take my money and go somewhere else" and got the run around about my refund. *** ****** was upset because he ask me to do a money transfer through my bank and told him I didn't feel comfocartable doing that. I called again today and was told to call my bank because they no longer have my money but my bank has not received a refund from them.

Desired Settlement: I would like my full refund

Business Response: This customer disputed the charge through her credit card company, and we have accepted the chargeback.

Complaint: After My Order Was Pleased I received phone call to be paid an additional $160.00 for some mandatory Handling & Insurance. Witch I thing should be placed on order form, when I purchase the TV - NOT day after my purchase! After 20 days nothing is received yet and no contact is possible with All Time TC Inc. No one is picking up phone in Customer Service and no one is replaying to e-mails I send several times. Total ignorance to a customers, NO! contact is possible questions not answered. Tracking number I received after purchase is impossible to track, DO NOT WORK !

Business Response:

The TV was definitely shipped from out warehouse.
It's possible that the bad weather has created significant delays.
If the TV has not already been delivered at the time of this message, it will be shortly.
Please stay tuned until we can investigate further.

I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID# *******, and have determined that my complaint has NOT been resolved because:

I'm very disappointed and I think that this business is so irresponsible and very ignorant to their customers. It's pass over a month from purchase of the TV from All Time TV.com  and NO delivery, I did Call the Credit Company and ask for disputing those chargers. That was accepted and I got my money back in to my Credit Card from the purchase. I still fill that the All Time TV.com, should be responsible for the inconvenience.

At this point I want to finish this unlucky business with All Time TV.com, and never have to deal with them again.

Complaint: I ordered a camera online with this company. I was NOT happy with this experience. I was sent an email asking me to call the company. They then called me later that day (during an inconvenient time). When I spoke to them, they tried to sell me many extras and warranties. I kept refusing and was finally able to get off the phone. After placing the order, I received an extra charge on my credit card. I called to question why and I was told I approved this extra charge when I spoke with them on the phone. It was not clear from the conversation that I had approved anything. I argued this and was then told that they would refund my credit card. I thought all was done. However, it is 2 months later and my credit card has still not been refunded!!! I have called to complain and was told they would approve it immediately. I am still waiting for the refund! While I did receive the product I ordered, I am very frustrated with the customer service! This company uses tricky and underhanded methods; please be aware of the phone call!!!"

Desired Settlement: I would like the charge of $33.79 returned to my credit card. I also want the company aware that I am upset with having to call multiple times just to get a refund I was promised!

Consumer Response: Better Business Bureau:

I want to thank the BBB for providing an outlet!  Alltimetvs had not responded to me, but as soon as I filed a complaint with BBB they responded immediately. I still would not recommend this alltimetvs, but I am happy to finally resolved the problem!  I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID *******, and find that this resolution is satisfactory to me and the matter has been resolved.

Additional Notes

Complaint: On Monday, 12/**/2013 I placed an online order on www.alltimetvs.com for a Samsung UN60F7100 model TV. The order # ******* was confirmed via email and they accepted by American Express Credit card (full deals provided to successfully charge the card). The invoice total was $1,488.62 On receipt of the email order confirmation I was awaiting news on shipping date with tracking details. On Wednesday morning I received a phone call from this company's sales staff pressurizing me to make additional accessory purchases, which I refused individually. At this point the sales man insisted I pay an additional $90 for shipping insurance, which I also refused, as they clearly advertised shipping was FREE and also the emailed invoice reflected the same. This is nothing but a last effort to extract additional money from their customer. I asked them to honor the order which was placed and confirm by them in writing via email. They proceeded with Cancelling the order, and editing the order with Handling and Insurance of $89.28. The new total being $1,577.90. This is not acceptable and I emailed them for a explanation, which they have not provided. They accepted by credit card information, have charged my card and now have cancelled the order.

Desired Settlement: I would like BBB assistance with compelling this company to stop these dubious practices and honor the online order placed and payment accepted. The way this company advertises its products on their website and other comparative shopping websites with clearly mentioned prices and when ordered are placed they do not honor the price and try to sell additional accessories and force customer to pay more.

Business Response: As per our clearly written and public policy **********************************************

 
**Please note** for certain large screen LED/LCD and plasma TVs, projectors,  audio receivers, microwaves and other small and large appliances, as well as for high-end SLR cameras, camcorders & lenses, a separate insurance charge is mandatory, and will be calculated based on the item value, weight, dimensions, and your zip code. You will be contacted after checkout to be notified of the amount.
 
This customer's credit card was never billed, and his order was cancelled.
 
We did nothing wrong, we were simply following our publicly advertised policy.
 
Thanks, have a great day!
 
All Time TVs

Consumer Response: When the accepted the order the took my credit card number as well. This is accepting the order with full payment. Their website and system should have calculated the so called ship insurance at time of order receipt. Not get paid and demand more. No other company does this kind of back handed demand more practice. Also, when they advertise the price of the TVs they don't mentioned anything related to this insurance requirement. This is fraud, if they don't wish to sell at price specified and advertised, they should have never demanded for my credit card payment. Attached is a copy of the invoice for your reference. Does not say anything related to additional insurance. This company needs to honor the order placed, money accepted and ship the order. What makes it worst, they are showing my credit card details on their online website, information which should be keep private in their system, not even accessible by their employees. I am going to complaint to AMEX for this as well. Regards, *****

Complaint: Bait and Switch 1 - Placed order at 7:00PM on 10/**/2013 for Samsung UN60F8000 TV advertised for $1,969.00 with free shipping and a discount of $39.38 for a total of $1929.62. 2. Received Order confirmation ******* with a total price of $1969.00 indicating that my order was received and an order confirmation email would be sent after sales staff review. 3. Received an email asking me to call ###-###-#### to confirm purchase. 4. I called AllTimeTV to confirm my purchase. I believe **** was the person I talked with. He told me that the TV offered was a not a US consumer TV and the price of the US TV is $2,199.95. I protested but he insisted that was the US price for the TV. 5. I received another invoice with the new price and this time I had a “Handling and Insurance” fee of $87.98. This was suppose to be free shipping. I want AllTimeTV to refund $358.31, the difference between the advertised price and the invoice price and the $87.98 for shipping handling and insurance. I have bought many items on the Internet and not one has advertised free shipping and then charged a fee associated with shipping costs.

Desired Settlement: I want AllTimeTV to refund $358.31, the difference between the advertised price and the invoice price and the $87.98 for shipping handling and insurance. I have bought many items on the Internet and not one has advertised free shipping and then charged a fee associated with shipping costs.

Business Response: The customer has been refunded to his satisfaction, and he has agreed to withdraw his BBB complaint.

Thanks- have a great weekend and happy holidays!

Consumer Response: My now cancelled credit card was caught up in the Target mess so I am unable to verify that the promised refund has been credit to my credit card; however, I do accept their offer to refund $150.00 and I will close the complaint subject to verification that the credit has been made to my account. Thank you.

Additional Notes

Complaint: I had initially purchased a camera advertised for $388. Days later I was receiving voice messages telling me to call the store. I finally did, and the person, ****, said he needed to verify my address. I confirmed then hold me I purchased an "imported" product. After much negative talk about my purchase and much convincing I decided to pay an extra $120 for a USA model. Later that same day spoke with a rep and was placed on hold until they closed. The following morning I called **** back to cancel my order. He tried to throw in a camera case and memory card. I refused and let him know I wanted to cancel the order. On their website it clearly says they charge 2.5% to cancel orders. **** tells me that if I cancel he will have to charge me 3%, twenty dollars, his exact words. Knowing it was more than listed on their site I agreed just to get our conversation over with. **** says, "no problem, we will charge you $20 and cancel your order." About an hour later I get an email from them telling me my refund was successful. However, the refund was only $20. A few hours after that I receive another email telling me my camera has shipped. Immediately I call the store. ****, I know his voice now, tells me "too late, it's already shipped." I remind him that he himself canceled it and told me about the 3% cancelation fee. He puts me on hold for a while then tells me he'll call later and hangs up. I have not heard from digital monster since. I call and am transferred and placed on hold for up to one hour every time. I know there was no communication problem because I repeatedly refused his free offers in order to cancel my order at an even higher percent than stated.

Desired Settlement: I would like a full refund and for this company to stop their bait and switch tactics.

Business Response: We spoke to the customer and he agreed to withdraw the complaint if we refunded him, which we will do as soon as we receive the returned merchandise.

Thanks, have a great weekend!

Complaint: original Order Place on 11/**/2013. Was billed on 11/**/2013 Still have never heard back from AllTimeTv.I called AllTimeTv and spoke to **** at *****. I originally wanted to purchase the Samsung UN60F8000. He told me that they have the upgraded one that you can see at Best Buy for just ~$90 more. This is the Samsung UN60F8000BFXZA LED HDTV. After I agreed to pay for the upgraded model **** instructed me that there is a mandatory 4% insurance cost associated that I questioned but agreed to pay. They he sold me the TV warranty. After I agreed to purchase the warranty, HDMI 2 cable and the 4% insurance, **** told me that he was going to provide me FREE the White Glove delivery and an additional HDMI cable. I have called **** 3 times to get a copy of the order and an expected delivery date. The first two time he said he would get right on it and send me an email with the details. Today I called and got in touch with **** and forwarded me to his **** and I had to leave a voice mail.I have also contacted customer service and they replied back to my email. The PROBLEM with that email is that they sent the TV sales information to my email address which they had wrong and addressed me my another persons name. Attached is the email sent to me from *** with Customer Service:-----------------------------------------------------------------------From: *******************To: ********************Subject: RE: AllTimeTVs.com - Contact Us Page MessageDate: Sun, * Dec 2013 02:31:31 +0000 ****,Thank you very much for shopping with Alltimetvs.comI just forwarded a copy of your sales receipt to *********************Please confirm that you have received itWe appreciate your business!Sincerely,*** *****Customer Relations Team-------------------------------------------------------original order details as I wrote them down whilst talking to **** at ****. on 11/**/2013AllTimeTv's - ###-###-####order # ******-7 days White Glove Delivery2418.8* **** *****bfxza model

Better Business Bureau:

I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID# *******, and have determined that my complaint has NOT been resolved because:

1) They did not get my email wrong because of any fault of mine.  You have to fill out a form that makes you confirm your email along with my full name and order .  Not only did they get the form filled email address wrong, they got my name wrong as well.  s

2) This was not the only issue.  I kept getting ignored and email sent back and forth were non-essential in getting me answered with my questions.  I requested many many times to send me the information regarding my order.  Nothing was  even sent to me until I started this complaint with the BBB of NY.

3) The tracking  # I finally received provided the shipping company and their website.  Went I went to the web site to track the progress, it only stated that it was shipped on Nov **** and should arrive 3-6 business days.  It's been now 10 days.  So I called the shipping company and provided the tracking #, they said the order was placed less than 72 hours ago (what) ???????  So I called the Dallas shipping location and waited on the phone for 21 minutes before I hung up.

4) At this point, All Time TV's cannot tell me when it is going to get here, the shipping company has provided no help in tracking.  I still don't know if or when it will arrive.

Additional Notes

Complaint: This company advertises products with "Free Shipping" included in their online ads, AND in the shopping cart. I can provide you a screenshot if necessary. Several days after placing the order, I received a call for confirmation. Great. However, my $589 purchase had suddenly become $628. And why? Well, they call it a "Mandatory Insurance Charge"... which in reality is the cost to ship and insure this product. So, they're advertising free shipping, then adding the shipping back in on some back door handling fee. It was too late for me now to re-order this product from another supplier, but BUYER BEWARE. This company is not up front on their "Free Shipping" policy. Yes, it is buried somewhere in their terms and conditions. When I questioned the individual on the phone "what percentage of your clientele actually read those terms and conditions prior to clicking I Agree" he said "Probably very low". In fact, why would you - it's clearly displayed "Free Shipping". I will never buy from this company again - nor should anyone else. If they'll lie this blatantly on the front end of an order, then why wouldn't they lie when you have trouble?

Desired Settlement: The only way I will feel vindicated is if the company credits back the $39 "Mandatory Insurance / Handling" charge on my purchase. Otherwise, I'd like for others to be aware of this scam policy.

Business Response: Hello,

The customer was informed about the the mandatory insurance (which is clearly stated in our shipping policy page) BEFORE his credit card was charged.
He had the option to not go ahead with the purchase. He chose to go ahead and buy the TV.
As a one-time courtesy, we will refund the $39, provided that he withdraws his BBB complaint and any other negative feedback.
Thanks, have a great day!

Complaint: On November **, I inquired about a camera listed on AllTimeTVs' website, i.e. Nikon D7000 (http****************************************************************) via the website's contact form. I received a response from an AllTimeTV's Customer Service Team member, *** *****. After exchanging several emails, I was told that the camera is "brand new factory fresh and sealed", "There is a standard one year manufacturers warranty" and "It is a US model" I called the phone order system to place the order and I was told that the item I was looking at is an international model that carries no warranty. I sent an email back to *** ***** and I have not received a favorable response regarding this discrepancy.

Desired Settlement: I would like to receive a formal apology and to have AllTimeTV's state very clearly on the website regarding the item's detailed information. To the general consumer, the country of origination may be a trivial matter, but to a photographer, the country of origination is a big consideration.

Business Response: There must be a misunderstanding…the US Model IS what we advertise and it was and still is available…

The customer is welcome to call back and place his order and get this misunderstanding cleared up.
Thanks! Have a great day.

Additional Notes

Complaint: All Time Tv Inc. hosts and sells it's products through Alltimetvs.com. On their website they advertise the feature of price match guarantee for competing business and asks the clients to just provide a link to the same product and they will price match to that price. On Wednesday November ****, 2013, after doing searches for presents for my family I happen on there website and saw the advertisement. I had saw a deal earlier on *************** that was advertising the LG 55" LA7400 TV for $900.00 and on Alltimetvs's website they had it for $1,189.00. After reading their price match guarantee, I decided to make the order through them. I signed up for a new account and proceeded to provide all relevant information including: Billing, Shipping, and Credit Card information. About an hour after I made the purchase someone from their office gave me a call stating that they could not honor the Price Match guarantee. I asked them why because it is the same product and they told me that that price is impossible because if they sell it at that price it would be "Below Cost" for them. They continued to provide me with the excuse that the product is refurbished and theirs is brand new so because of this they cannot price match a "different product". I told them on the website it does not state that it's a refurbished product, but instead it is a new product complete with Manufacturers warranty. They said sorry and that they cannot price match. Now I understand the concept of selling at a loss and no wants that, but if you advertise something on your website you should be able and prepared to fulfill the advertisement that your company came up with to facilitate sales. You cannot just advertise you have the lowest price "Guarantee" and when something does come along and beats your price go back on your word. Highly disappointed with the results of the phone conversation and not happy about being falsely advertised too.

Desired Settlement: My desired outcome is to be reasonable and for the company to uphold what they advertise. Match the price at $900 for the unit with free shipping. They even have a 2% promo discount plastered all over their website and $10.00 off any price matches they do.

Business Response:

The customer provided a link to a competitor’s website but completely made up his own price.
If you go to ***************, you don’t see a price until you add that product to the shopping cart.
Once it’s added to the MicroCenter cart, the price shown is $1,499, which is $310 MORE EXPENSIVE than our
advertised price. Also, on MicroCenter, that model is available only if you pick it up in-store.
This customer is lying about seeing it for $900. 
Thanks, have a great day.

Consumer Response: Better Business Bureau:

I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID# *******, and have determined that my complaint has NOT been resolved because:


The business clearly states the myself, the client is lying, which is kind of unprofessional, but regardless I would understand why they would not want to honor a price match that is clearly lowers than theirs. I have attached 2 screenshots of the website with the pricing after being added to the cart. This was on the day the order was made. I did not come up with my own price, but instead was an actual price that was given at **************** 

It is ridiculous that the company now states that I was lying about the price when previously when they had called to cancel my order they clearly were aware of their competitors price and just told me that the model was "refurbished" and cannot honor the price. 

This is a terrible way to do business, and to state that your client is lying when there is clear evidence is not a good way to do business. I bought this item from this company because they were accredited by the Better Business Bureau and felt comfortable due to this accreditation. I see now that maybe I made a mistake in trusting them.

 

 

 

 

In order for the BBB to appropriately process your response, you MUST answer the question above.


Sincerely,

***** ****




 

Business Response: There is no way that MicroCenter can offer this at $900. I don't know if the customer is manipulating his screenshot or not.

However, my screenshot (attached) shows the same product from the same website at $1499.
Wholesale cost (what we and other retailers buy it for) is $1,050...there is no way that MicroCenter can offer it for $900.
And indeed they don't.
Thanks, have a great day.

Consumer Response: Better Business Bureau:

I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID# *******, and have determined that my complaint has NOT been resolved because:


The Business's response to the matter is a screenshot of present day amount that MicroCenter wants to charge for the product. On the day that the order was placed by me the item may have been discounted at the time due to a promotion offered by that store. Again using reasons that it does not make sense because they were discounting more than their cost, is not reason for rejecting what your company promises. 

As far as the Business's claim that the screenshot was "manipulated" is further ludicrous. I don't know how the BBB would go about confirming that the screenshots has not been tampered with, but if you do have a way please verify the image. 

I continue to attach the 2 images of the screenshots i took that day of the actual price that was being offered by **************** If you feel the need please proceed with any kind of professional verification that this image is true and correct. 

I have also attached screen shots of what the business's website states as their "Price Match Guarantee" policy. Also additional pictured of the price match and order that I palced through their online website. 

I look forward to the BBB's response to this matter.

Complaint: I purchased a TV, Blue Ray DVD and 2 HDMI cables from them on 08/**/2013 I was sold a White Glove Delivery and charged for handling and Insurance. I was told a speedy delivery and TV will be setup in my living room and out of the BOX. I received the TV on 08/**/2013 so much for a speedy delivery and the delivery guys say that its a normal delivery service and laugh when I said White Glove delivery, they only took the top box off and plug the TV to make sure it comes on and left. I had to cancel my Costa Rica trip last month because I did not want to miss the TV delivery. I tried contacting the seller Via email multiple times and never got a response so I called Expedia and canceled my trip and lost $115 for my trip. As soon as I put a dispute on my credit card some one called from their office and we spoke for more than 45 minutes over the phone arguing back and forth. finally we came to an agreement that the seller will refund 50 to my credit card and send me a $100 restaurant gift certificate. After few day I received both credit but to find out in order to use the $100 gift certificate i have to spend $200. I have been trying to get a hold of some one at their office and not response, they are closed for a religious reasons. Also the TV still sitting in the BOX in my living room so i decide to plus it in and see if it really works and noticed that the panel has white pixels and does not distribute light correctly. I have tried several times Via Email to get a hold of some one but no luck. Now I am stuck with a bad TV Unit and also charged for something I never received. this is a shady way to due business. hope some one can help.

Desired Settlement: I just want a complete refund and I have spend so much time and effort try to resolve this issue as nicely as possible but it is impossible from the sellers side.

Business Response: We do not have any records of any emails from this customer since we resolved his issues back in August and credited him the $50 and sent him the $100

gift card. The customer was satisfied with our service at the time, and indicated as much by accepting the credit and gift card without further complaints.
As far as the TV goes, it is a brand new unit that comes with a manufacturer warranty on all factory defects. The customer can contact Samsung and they can walk him through the process. If the customer would like help or advice on how to initiate the Samsung warranty claim, he is welcome to call our customer service department at ###-###-####, extension *, and we will be more than glad to offer guidance.
Thanks and have a great day!

Additional Notes

Complaint: On April **** 2013 I had purchased an 80 inch Sharp T.V I was told i should purchase a 5 year extended warranty for $499.00 the salesman said it takes effect one year after purchase date because first year is covered by Sharp T V. I had told the Salesman I wanted to check prices on the extended warranty before i made a decision. I was told to buy it now and since it does not take effect until April **** 2014 I can check prices and if I decide to cancel I have 30 days from date of purchase in which to cancel the policy he also assured me their price for the extended warranty is less than anybody. When I received my credit card statement thay had billed me$549.00 not the $499.00 that was on my original order I would be glad to send you documentation. I checked with Sharp T V and was told Sharp T V offers a 4 year extended warranty for $179.99 a big difference from the $549.00 I was charged for the 5 year warranty. I then contacted All Time T V as well as the provider of the extended warranty for All Time which is C P S I spoke with *** ******* and explained i wanted to cancel and followed up with e-mail on May **** both to C P S as well as All Time T V. If you also look at the charge to the Credit Card Company they added a handling and insurance charge of $148.50 I was told by All Time I cannot cancel because they have a written policy which says that you cannot cancel an extended warranty even though it does not take effect for a year from purchase. I then contacted Credit card company and requested they deduct the charges for both the extended warranty as well as extra charges they billed my credit card company. All Time T V will not refund so I ask your help

Desired Settlement: I want a refund of both the $549.00 they charged for the extended warranty that does not take effect until April 2014 .Regarding their policy of no refunds on extended warranty I was never told that when i purchased the policy and never given anything in writing stating that policy. The fact that I purchased a $499 Policy from them and then they billed my Credit Card company$549.00 shows they are dishonest. My copy of my order does not show a handling and Insurance charge of $148.50 Yet they took the liberty to charge me $148.50 another dishonest act I want a refund of that charge also. I really appreciate your help in this matter and if you want written documentation please do not hesitate to contact me i will e-mail it to you. Regards, *** *******

Business Response:

I have copied below the email WITH THE TIME STAMP that was sent to this customer on April ****, 2013 at 9:34AM showing
the details of his order, INCLUDING the warranty at $549 AND the mandatory insurance charge of $148.50 (required by
the shipper on 80" TVs. 
 
The customer's claim that "he never knew about it" is clearly refuted by the time-stamped evidence below; he is simply trying
to make an absurd and dishonest claim 5 months after purchase.
 
Additionally, below you will find a link and a copied portion from our clearly written policy on our site regarding cancellation of warranties.
 
Thanks for your time and attention- have a great day!

Complaint: I filled an internet order that their website accepted and which I paid for by PayPal in the amount of $4,496.99. After this money was transferred, one of their salesmen called me and lied to me on several items saying needed goods and services which I did not need and which were ridiculously over priced. He told me the wall mount I had ordered was too light for this TV, when their website states it will handle 175 pounds and the TV only weighs 68 pounds. he told me that standard HDMI cables would not work for the TV, which was a lie. The last straw was that, although this item had free shipping, I needed to pay $209.00 for insurance. In total, the additional charges came to $700.80, which they requested I pay by PayPal. I have refused that charge.

Desired Settlement: They can either adhere to the original agreement and ship the things I ordered for the price their website setor they can cancel the order and refund my PayPal in full. Personally I would prefer that the cancel as I have no desire to deal with this company.

Additional Notes

Complaint: I purchased a Samsung TV and warranty on 7-**-2013 on line through AllTime TV for $3,347.22. The shipping company (Manna) attempted delivery on 7-**-2013. I refused delivery due to excessive packaging damage and scratches on the product as a result. It appeared that a forklift tooth punctured the box. The shipping company took the package away and I immediately contacted AllTime TV's customer service rep (*****). Since delivery would take another 2 weeks, I requested a refund to my credit card. I was told that would be done. On Friday 7-**-2013 I sent a follow-up email checking on the status and I received no reply despite their advertised 24 hour response time. On Monday I called and spoke to ***** again inquirying why he hasn't refunded my money and he said he was still trying to settle a claim with the shipping company. I told him that situation is between AllTime and Manna. He asked me to give him a couple more days to resolve. I called him again on Thursday 8-*-2013, this time more upset asking why AllTime is holding my money hostage while they try and resolve a dispute between a third party they contracted with to ship their product. This time he said that he spoke with their billing department and my account would be credited the $3347.22 within the hour and they would send me an email confirmation. I followed up again this morning and this time (******) said the account would be credited in 15 minutes and an email confirmation would be sent. Again, still no refund.

Desired Settlement: This refund needs to happen immediately. They guaranteed my purchase was safe and advertised/advised (by ***** *** ***) prior to delivery not to accept the package if it is damaged or it will be more difficult for them to file a claim with the shipping company. ******************************************************** The stress and time I've spent on the phone and writing emails trying to resolve this situation has been much more than a reasonable person would expect. At this point, I'm looking for punitive damages. My average hourly rate is $163.45 x 3 = $490.37 + $3347.22 = $3,837,59. I've adhered exactly to their return/cancelation policy (link attached) and now I've spent 3+ hours of my time trying to get this resolved.

Consumer Response: Better Business Bureau:

I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID *******, and find that this resolution is satisfactory to me and the matter has been resolved.

Complaint: I placed an order online with this company for a TV which I received a confirmation email indicating the price that matched the price when I hit the "submit" order button. I then received an email a day later from the company to call and "confirm" the order. This call is not for confirmation...it is their attempt to sell you white glove delivery, cables, mounts, insurance, etc... Furthermore, they indicated that if I wanted the 2% promo discount that had ALREADY been applied on the online order I would need to pay with a money order. Additionally they magically added a "handling and insurance" charge to the order which was NOT on my order when I clicked "submit" on their website. This company appears to practice the art of LYING about their prices and terms. The price you think you are being charged is NOT the price apparently. It's unfortunate that companies operate like this. If I wanted peripherals I would have ordered them online, if I wanted insurance I would have checked the box online for coverage, and to find new charges on my order AFTER I submitted and received a confirmation email is UNACCEPTABLE and DECEPTIVE.

Desired Settlement: I want to ensure the order is cancelled. I requested a cancellation as I do not trust this company to deliver what they claim to have sold me.

Business Response:

To Whom it May Concern,
 
Contacting the web-order customers to confirm the order is standard in our industry. It protects against fraud, against stolen credit cards being used, or against your teenage son/daughter buying a new 70-inch TV using your credit card without asking you first.
The 2% discount is CLEARLY marked on our homepage, and if you click the "click for details" button, it clearly shows the promo as being applicable when you pay via wire transfer or money order (as an alternative to paying by credit card, which costs us 2+%, i.e. we don't have cc fees to pass along to our customers when they pay by certified check).
 
The insurance fees are ALSO clearly stated on our policy page - ALSO a standard in our industry. See our policy here: ******************************************* :
 
**Please note** for certain large screen LED/LCD and plasma TVs, projectors,  audio receivers, microwaves and other small and large appliances, as well as for high-end SLR cameras and camcorders, a separate insurance charge is mandatory, and will be calculated based on the item value, weight, dimensions, and your zip code. You will be contacted after checkout to be notified of the amount.
 
Finally, this customer was never billed, and his order was- and still is- cancelled.
 
Thanks - have a great day!

Additional Notes

Complaint: I purchased a Sony receiver from them and talked in length about making sure this was a brand new product and the quality of they're products. The salesman named ***** sounded so trustworthy and reassuring that they're Company has a excellent rating with BBB and not aware of any negative complaints against the Company. I received the receiver promptly, packaging was secure, box looked like it had not been opened or tampered with, however after hooking up all the speakers and inputs and power supply it would not go into the set-up menu. I called immediately to the Company I purchased the receiver from which was Alltimetv's.com and they were not willing to assist me at all, would not take the product back or exchange it for another new product since it was less than 14 days since purchase and/or receiving. The Company wants me to contact Sony about the product. I did contact Sony and they tried to assist me over the phone and were unable to get into the set-up menu, I rebooted the receiver several times and could not get it to work properly. I also went thru the menu on my Samsung TV which this receiver is connected to and could not find the receiver code on they're set-up. So I will still have a problem with this receiver. Sony said it definitely was defective. I feel this Company buys products that have defects and wants the Consumers to go thru the manufacturer for replacement.

Desired Settlement: I would like Alltimetv's.com to send me a return label or set-up a pickup from the delivery Company they used to send this receiver and refund my American Express card the total amount of $709.00.

Business Response: This is a brand- new factory-sealed item, backed by the manufacturer with a Sony 5-year warranty. We don't manufacturer this product, we simply buy them and sell them to customers. Our policy on our site is very clear - you need to go through your manufacturer (Sony) warranty which came with the receiver. Sony will stand behind the product and replace it if there is a manufacturer defect. That the customer had no patience to go through the regular accepted channels - he didn't want to wait for Sony to send him a new one or fix their factory defect - and he purchased a different one elsewhere - is not our responsibility. Internet merchants across the board routinely have this policy when they sell brand-new, factory sealed merchandise that comes with manufacturer warranties.

Thanks for your time.

Consumer Response:

Better Business Bureau:

I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID# *******, and have determined that my complaint has NOT been resolved because

This receiver has clearly a defect in it, since it is supposedly brand new I should be able to return this receiver back to store where I purchased it and get a full refund.  This receiver will not even bring up the initial set-up.V I called All Time TV and asked him to take the broke receiver back and sell us a better model but he refused.]

Complaint: I ordered a BRAND NEW Samsung 55" 8 series LED 240Mhz 3D, tv from All Times TVs as advertised. What I got through FedEx was an opened and after market sealed box with a tv that had all the packaging Styrofoam broken. I refused to sign and accept since it was not new as mentioned by All Times Tvs. I got to speak to the owner whom was extremely rude and kept on telling me to accept the tv. I declined. The owner since has not credited my credit card. I sent him photos of the opened tv box and he still refused to take responsibility for such a bad product. (The FedEx employees had never seen such bad packaging themselves). I can’t believe this place is still in business!!!

Desired Settlement: This business should refund my credit card and should not charge me shipping charges both ways and a 15% re-stocking fee. Imagine if this would of happened to any of his family members. Would he be happy to receive a bad packaged, after market sealed, item once he ordered it brand new and then get charged shipping and re-stocking fees. He would not like it!!!

Business Response: The customer was shipped a BRAND NEW, FACTORY SEALED 55" Samsung TV. The TV was shipped via FedEx on 5/**. Tracking number and a delivery date was sent to customer immediately. FedEx tried to deliver 2-3 times, each time unsuccessfully. Bear in mind that when FedEx is unable to deliver to a customer, it gets unloaded off the truck at the end of the day, and reloaded the next day. This happened 4-6 times over a few day period. At some point, the customer apparently arranged on his own to go to the FedEx facility because he couldn't arrange to be home during the drivers' routes. The TV box had extra tape on it and the box had the wear-and-tear as to be expected from a box that went on and off the truck 6 times. Had the customer arranged to be there to accept the delivery during one of the pre-arranged delivery attempts, the box would not have gotten beaten up. 

We have no problem refunding him in full, but only after we settle our damage claim with FedEx, as per our policy. The customer was informed as such. The FedEx damage claim is in process, and the customer will be refunded once the claim settlement is finalized. 

Consumer Response: Better Business Bureau:

I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID# *******, and have determined that my complaint has NOT been resolved because:

 

I do not understand your business practices as you mentioned on your respond.  I don’t understand why you will file a complaint with FedEx on my behalf.  At the moment that I did not accept the merchandise, I am excluded between All Times TVs and FedEx.  Both of you should settle this incident between your legal processes but the consumer should not be dragged along! I am requesting a copy of your policy as you mentioned and a copy of your complaint with FedEx as requested by my attorney.  I have attached a copy of the door tags that FedEx left behind on my door. One is dated Friday May **, 2013 and the second attempt is Monday June *, 2013 before i scheduled a pickup at the Fed Ex store.

By the way, I bought a 70” LED tv from SEARS, and delivery was attempted twice before I scheduled a pick up. I have the photos available to demonstrate the difference between both TVs. SEARS is reputable merchant and will continue doing business with them!!! Thank you!!! 

 

In order for the BBB to appropriately process your response, you MUST answer the question above.

Business Response: We received the FedEx reimbursement check, and the customer has been refunded.

Thank you, have a great day!

Additional Notes

Complaint: Product was delivered damaged / scratched and not in "NEW" condition as advertised on website. There was no damage to packaging, which means this TV was most likely damaged prior to shipping. TV was delivered before sunrise before 7:00am, perhaps to conceal damage. Company is being nonchalant and defensive about this issue and have been slow to respond and resolve.

Desired Settlement: Since item is not new, it needs to be discounted accordingly. Industry standard is 15-30% markdown on damaged goods like this one. I intend to take legal action and/or file a chargeback with credit card company if this is not resolved.

Business Response: The customer ordered the TV on May ****. It was shipped out on May ****, and delivered with White Glove service on June ***. EVERYTHING we sell is brand new, factory sealed. White Glove means that the delivery men brought the TV into the house, unboxed, and plugged it into an electrical outlet. This allowed the customer to inspect the TV, make sure there was no crack or physical damage, and that it was in good working condition upon delivery. After this inspection, the customer SIGNED that he received delivery of the TV with no damage. The paper that he signed, which we have, says that once he signs for the delivery, he can no longer make a damage claim. This policy is also very prominently displayed on our website and in confirmation emails to the customer. 

The customer waited until June **** to reach out and make a damage claim - a full week after he signed for delivery. It's likely that he damaged the TV himself while trying to mount it on a wall or TV stand.
Thanks for your attention, have a great day!

Thanks for your attention, have a great day!

Consumer Response: Better Business Bureau:

I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID# *******, and have determined that my complaint has NOT been resolved because:

 

It is libelous and unmerited for this business to state or imply in writing that "it's likely that he (the customer) damaged the TV himself while trying to mount it on a wall or TV stand." What facts or proof does this business have to make or support this inaccurate and unjust statement? TV has not been removed from bottom carton, so how can business assume, claim, or project that it was wall mounted or placed on a stand?

TV was delivered to an empty, unoccupied residence in ******* ***** ** on 6/*/13 at 6:55am. I've never received any type of shipment or delivery before 9:00am from any company, so not sure why this TV was delivered before 7:00am. Either way, TV was the only item in this brand new residence until 6/15/13, when occupancy occurred. I have a landlord, signed lease, and moving company receipt to prove so.

The TV carton and inside protective sleeve and foam inserts showed no signs of damage upon delivery on 6/*. In fact, I still have the packaging and its contents -- still no sign of damage. Packaging was/is not damaged, so filing a damage claim with shipping company would be an illegal act of fraud since no packaging damage occurred (inside or out). And the location of damage was covered by protective foam that shows no sign of abuse, force, or defect. 

 I was able to fully inspect the TV in the daylight later in the week and that's when the damage was discovered. It was difficult to discover at first since it was on the back corner of the TV.

I reported damage to business within 7 days of receipt, which falls under California Civil Code Section 1723. In the state of California, sellers are required to accept returned items if they are defective. Despite being based in New York, business is currently violating several California civil / consumer laws, including "implied warranty of merchantability." Federal laws being violated include the Magnuson-Moss Act.

Panasonic does not recognize ************** as an "authorized dealer," therefore, product was not shipped directly to AllTimeTVs from or by manufacturer. I am currently having the serial number traced to find the original source/recipient/merchant that purchased this TV directly from Panasonic and "transhipped" to AllTimeTVs. How can business claim that this item was "factory sealed" if they did not purchase directly from manufacturer or its authorized fulfillment centers? It was not shipped from a Panasonic facility.

To summarize, TV was listed as "Brand New" during purchase process, yet it arrived with a scratch and dent that was not caused by shipping or myself.  When I contacted AllTimeTVs' customer support, their main concern was whether the TV itself was functional and not that it was damaged prior to receipt.  Instead of resolving the issue, they were defensive and unwilling to compromise or find a solution.  This item was received "not as described." On top of returning this TV and refunding my money or reaching an agreeable discount, business should file a damage claim with the authorized dealer, distributor, reseller, or authority from where this TV product was obtained. Perhaps they can take the issue up with Panasonic.

Lastly, as of 6/**/13, the fine print on the ************** website does not mention or reference any of the California consumer laws or rights they are currently violating. AllTimeTVs should contact the California Attorney General for more information on how to sell and ship their products in the state of California.

Sincerely,

**** ******

Additional Notes

Complaint: I was in the market for a Rebel T3i Digital DSLR camera. I saw they had this camera for $420 on their website, $20 cheaper than the closest competitor. I decided to call to make sure this camera comes with the battery and charger. After speaking with their customer service representative, the gentleman assured me the camera did comes with both. I decided to order and received my first email receipt for $420. Shortly after, I received a order confirmation call from **** and he then asked me if I needed the battery and charger and that it was not included and that I would have to upgrade to the kit for $80 more, by doing this, I would also receive the USA model (even though there was nothing on the website stating that I was purchasing anything other than a USA model). I reluctantly agreed to pay the $80 more putting my total cost at $500. Even though the website mentions free shipping, I was charged a "handling & insurance" fee of $20, putting the total paid to All Time TV's to $519.94. After receiving my kit, they then called saying they accidentally shipped the lens and that I would have to send that back, when I told them I paid the extra $80 for the kit, they stated that was only for the camera, battery, and charger. They then charged me an additional (unauthorized) $80 that I am working on stopping payment now with my bank. Total charge $599.94.

Desired Settlement: I would like to stop the last $80 charge. I paid for what I received at the $519.94.

Business Response:

On 5/**/13, the customer ordered a Canon T3i, body-only, USA model. The order shipped out on 6/*/13. 
Due to a warehouse mistake, we also shipped a Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II Autofocus Lens (listed on our site at $139, our cost is $80), in error. The customer was not billed for the lens.
Even before the order was delivered, we sent him a return shipping label so that he could can send back the lens, which he didn't pay for. As a courtesy, we did that instead of rerouting the entire shipment back to our warehouse, in the interest of getting our customer his camera quickly.
Yesterday, he stated to our customer service associate that he is refusing to send back the lens.
Therefore, we have charged his credit card in the amount of $80 (only our cost - it's listed online for $60 more) for the above-mentioned lens.
If he chooses to return the lens, he may use the previously emailed shipping return label, and we will gladly refund him the $80.
Thanks, have a great day.

Business Response: We spoke to the customer this morning and have worked things out to everyone's satisfaction.

We have refunded the $80 today.
The customer will be withdrawing his complaint.
Have a great weekend!

Consumer Response: Better Business Bureau:

I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID *******, and find that this resolution is satisfactory to me and the matter has been resolved.

Complaint: loss of sleep and hot flashes migraine as result of wrongful and unlawful acts conducted by the above business .

Desired Settlement: Order: #***** . I ordered the camera Canon EOS 6d on line on 06/**/2013 for $1,387.00. On 06/**/2013 I received a call from above business representative who offered me the same camera at two hundred dollars price higher than invoice of my order ! Bait and switch scam. Canon EOS 6d is made in Japan and sold with battery charger, cables and a strap in a box ! Same representative told me that so called "import" model comes without battery and a charger and he doesn’t have it stock ! False advertisement at it’s best .It is like selling the laptop without as adapter and battery! Can not be legal !

Business Response: *** *********, is stating a number of untruths. He was never billed, never charged, nothing was ever shipped out. The product was advertised openly in our ads as an import model, and it DOES come with all of the accessories, including battery, charger, etc. The only thing different about the import model is the warranty - everything else is EXACTLY the same, including all enclosed accessories. It is quite common in our industry to advertise the cameras as import models, as they cost a few hundred dollars less than the US model. The camera in question was advertised as IN STOCK. Our sales rep informed him that it was an import model and that it was in stock. Our salesman also told him that the US model was also available, at a higher price - as we pay a higher price for those as well. The customer then proceeded to curse and threaten at our sales rep and then hung up. When our sales manager tried calling him back to talk, the customer wouldn't let the manager get a word in edgewise and just ranted and cursed and then hung up. Again, he was never billed, never charged, we advertised the product as in stock and as an import mode. We did absolutely nothing wrong. *** ********* was and is simply being irrational and irate. 

Thank you, have a great day.

Consumer Response: Better Business Bureau:

I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID# *******, and have determined that my complaint has NOT been resolved because:

[Your Answer Here]Because respondent (business owner or his representative ) refused to grant my contract and never extended the offer to process my order.

First of all thank you arbitrator ****** for the opportunity to tell you the truth.

Seller does not contest the fact that his company representative informed my on June ** ,2013

that Canon EOS 6d, I placed my order for does not come with battery and a charger!

Therefore the above fact becomes an undisputed fact.  Respondent lies about the fact that his representative informed me that camera I ordered was in stock. (See my declaration)   You can find it in yahoo folder’s account specifically set for you **** ******

**************************        password : ************

Respondent lies because he is trying to save his skin ! I have no skin ! And I have no possible reason to lie about the seller.  Respondent (owner) committed false advertising  offense. I know the  law way too well.  False statements by the seller were likely to result in loss of those few hundred dollars for me and any other person who was trying to get his hands on camera bellow $1400. Ordinarily at such low price order is never processed ! Respondent already admitted that import and USA models are identical !

On June **, 2013 I checked AllTimeTVs.com site and I could not find any USA model of Canon EOS 6d on their site. (see my declaration)

Possible   explanation is only one : On June ** seller being trying to sell me the Import camera for few hundred dollars  more which is a typical fraud ! Additionally the respondent (owner ) did not extend any offer to me at this time !  And he did not explained what kind of threats I told his representative ?

Also respondent does not understand that lies are repulsive to any truthful human being such as

Arbitrator ******. And his lies and subordination of lies is punishable under the federal law should my claim be denied or BBB decides to transfer any information to Federal Trade commission for investigation.

It looks like all good people are dead and honest sellers as well !  Honest seller is oxymoron because they always rip you off. It could being any of your relatives **** ****** which could of tried to buy the same camera as I was trying to buy  ! At least some sellers trying to follow the law ! in fear of punishment.

Thank you for your time **** ******.  Have a good day *** *********** ! I was ready to part with almost $1400 but because you are crook you never granted my contract !!!!!( see contact at the above e-mail)

Therefore I ask BBB to take severe action against the above business and  to make them to deliver the camera to me unharmed and unscratched ! There is no excuse for trying to swindle hard working people out of their money at such difficult economic times ! 

****** ******* ********* **** police officer *** *********.  God bless few good people left in this world. I never will forget them.   P.S i never claimed that they charged my credit card, all asked is for one resolution :to Grant my order !   And lazy respondent did not even read my complaint with BBB. That is very lame !

At least he has money swindling it from people and all I want is to help World war two veterans in Ukraine. Their pension is only 120 dollars a month ! People start losing it.

 

 

In order for the BBB to appropriately process your response, you MUST answer the question above.

Complaint: ordered a samsung 55es8000 online & gave them $2500.00 over 2 months ago....received nothing from them and I have already demanded my money over 6 weeks ago, still nothing besides threats to remove my bad review of their company or I wont get a refund, which seems to be the case.....

Desired Settlement: refund of my $...

Business Response: To Whom it May Concern:

This customer placed an order on 2/**/13.
Every order undergoes a verification process, where we screen for fraudulent orders. 
One of the things we look for is whether the billing address and shipping address match.
In this case, the customer provided us with two different addresses. We called his bank, and we 
were advised by his bank that his shipping address that he provided was not on file as a second address
on his credit card account. When we finally got him to add his new address as a verified shipping address,
thus "verifying" the order from our end, we shipped out the TV and accessories.
However, the new address he gave us was NOT coming up on any maps, and the shipping company
couldn't find the address either in their high-end GPS software. As it happens, the customer
lived in a brand new development, which was not yet added to any maps or online maps yet.
We sent 5 or 6 emails and left multiple voicemails asking the customer to PLEASE return our calls or emails 
because the TV was on the delivery company's truck, and yet they couldn't either get in touch with him
to schedule delivery. Finally, a full week after he placed his order, the customer responded that he wanted to
cancel the entire order.
We told him that the TV had already shipped, and that if he wanted to cancel the order, then he would have
to pay for the shipping there and back and the **% restocking fee, as per our clearly stated return policy, found
here ********************************************************
Shipping a large TV costs us $100 each way, and the restocking fee SHOULD have been a little over $350.
However, in the interest in settling the matter civilly, we offered to cancel the order and take a small loss if he paid
for PART of the shipping, for a total of $**0. He refused, and here we stand today. We did NOTHING wrong, we were 
simply following our clearly stated shipping/return policy, which is standard in our industry.
Thank you for your time and efforts.

Consumer Response: Better Business Bureau:

I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID# *******, and have determined that my complaint has NOT been resolved because:

Isn't it strange that he hasnt returned any of my money at all from over 2 months ago? I also ordered 2 wall mounts and 3 Hdmi cables. he tried to ship out the wrong ones after I emailed to cxl!! I have not received the TV and in my emails that I have proof of sending, WI asked for a tracking number for said TV. Never got a tracking number for the TV! We did call like he asked. And I have the pages from ****** for proof. He stated TV did not ship out because our address doesn't exist! He stated, " look up **** **** **** *** ******** *** ***** and see what you find." So he/***** is lying to you now If that is his story. We live in a brand new townhouse. We have had orders from ******* ********** * ******** among others ship to us with no problems since we moved in 2 months ago. Every call we made to this owner ended with him shouting/talking over us and insulting my wife. All he says is to call him, and when we do he says he will keep our money until we change my review on *******************. Then it ends with a shouting match. I have proof he shipped out wall mounts AFTER I requested a cancel of this order...BECAUSE I never received proof of shipment. And the wall mounts he shipped out were not what I ordered and didn't even fit the tv I already had nor the 1 I had placed the order for. I refused that shipment 2 1/2 months ago.I can provide documentation he is lying, and my wife is a witness that he said our address didn't exist and he stated," I can't ship to Mars!" He is lying to everyone to try to get a little of my money. He has had my money since February,**,2013. Like I said, **** has all of the proof I just spoke of. My rep with **** ****** ***** ** ****** ****** *** *** ****, Who is dealing with this issue if you need any more proof. How can this con-artist lie to me? Thanks for your help, please do whatever you can. I cant rest until this is over. Fyi, I also take **************** and this is not helping my condition whatsoever. It is not surprisingly worsening. This is wrong! Thank you, **** **** 

 

Sincerely,

Business Response: To Whom it May Concern: 

The money for the mounts has already been refunded via his chargeback, which we accepted. We also have no problem refunding for the TV less the shipping fees, as per our shipping terms which he agreed to, as previously discussed. We need written confirmation from him that he won't try to chargeback the shipping/restocking fees if we refund for the TV. We did NOTHING wrong, there's no reason why we should lose on the shipping both ways when he canceled after it shipped out. Our terms are very clear on our website and he agreed to our terms when he placed the order, as everyone has to do by clicking the "I agree to the shipping  terms and conditions" checkbox before placing the order.
Have a great weekend!

Complaint: My mother purchased a $2,000 Panasonic TV for me as well as delivery insurance, warranty, and extras from a pushy salesperson. They said it would arrive by 12/** but we didn't receive it until 12/**, the day we were leaving town. The delivery guys asked if we wanted them to open it and we said no as we were headed out of town. Upon return from our trip, we opened the undamaged box to find a cracked television to our shock and frustration. The shipping company called us and admitted they should have explained that them opening it was for inspection, but are hiding behind the fact that we didn't have them open it so there is 0 fault on their end. When calling Alltimetv's we were shocked at the amazingly poor customer service. They know we bought all insurance, that the shipping company admitted to not speaking about inspection, and that we have a broken TV from a dippy internet seller, but said we are **** out of luck as their policy is to not do anything in this situation. After trying to get this resolved unsuccessfully through ***** several times, we spoke to *****, a so called "owner." He completely dismissed this situation and after we said we would accurately discuss what happened on the net he angrily said go for it. This company is a scam, run by scammers, and owned by scammers. NEVER ever use them."

Desired Settlement: Cancel order or replace broken TV

Business Response:
To whom It may concern,
This letter is in response to complaint ID *******, the customer stated in the complaint that his mother purchased $2,000.00 Panasonic television, when in fact they purchased television for the price of $2,184.00. The merchandise was delivered to the customer in a timely fashion, the customer signed for the television in good condition. At the time of delivery the shippers offered the white glove in home service, in which where they would unbox the television for the customer to inspect it. However, the customer denied this request; they have even admitted this to us in an email directly from the customer. All Time TVs followed the proper steps in shipping and delivering the merchandise to the customer. The inspection of the television would have discerned the damaged television, but instead the customer rejected this action and contacted us two weeks after delivery. According to our policy the customer should not sign for any damaged merchandise and should contact us immediately, not only is this stated in our policy but on the box of the merchandise in a bright yellow warning sticker. The customer has also attempted to chargeback for the received merchandise that is in his possession, however, the dispute was closed in our favor. ******* *** ******** ******** ******** **** ** ******* ******* ** **** ** ***** ** ********* If there is any further information and/or documentation need please do not hesitate to contact me ###-###-####.

Complaint: I purchased a television on 2/17/13 - specifically a Samsung 55" Series 7 LED Black Flat Panel 3D HDTV- ********** - for $1544.10 that included the TV itself, In Home White Glove Service, Express Delivery, a "hidden" insurance shipping fee, and sales tax. The TV also came with BuySafe protection (www.buysafe.com) that is suppose to protect against Purchase Guarantee, Lowest price Guarantee (specifically if the price of the TV drops in the next 30 days the difference is issued - the TV already has dropped in price as of at least 2/25/13 to 1339.00 where I paid 1368.00. I had first spoken with a sales rep at AllTimeTVs.com on 2/15/13 to inquire about further details. On 2/17/13 I spoke with "***** - the owner of the company" after placing the order to try and get a delivery date and also ensure the TV came on time. I had noticed that the company had poor BBB grade, poor Google, ripoffreport.com, and Yelp reviews and wanted to simply ensure a smooth delivery with a NEW TV (not refurbished) and wanted to understand the process; delivery date; etc - their ecommerce site nor service does not operate ANYTHING like others that I have used regularly. I realize they are a smaller company but there is some inherent advertising deception (such as the "shipping insurance fee" that comes out of no where and verbal and written agreement deceit that takes place and accusation leveled by the owner that contain both liable, slander, and character defamation including personal insults such as "you must be bi-polar" and shouting over me speaking on the phone. I would never buy or recommend them to anyone. Running a sales team myself and having a legal background academically seemed to incite the owner as I believe he anticipated that,like many others, I would have issue with his business practices. I assured him that as long as the transaction was completed why would he have any need to even have that in the forefront of his mind - but apparently again the manner in which he conducts business lends him to people being upset - I did not want to be one of those people, but nonetheless have been put in this position based purely on his company's specific actions with our unique transaction. He is plainly aware of the deceptive practices and promises made that he has no intent on keeping. Further, I believe they specifically do NOT itemize their receipts so that the hidden fees and shipping fees are not visible and the company can deny any responsibility. I spoke with "***** the owner" today and he said that the call I alluded to above he recorded without my knowledge which is illegal on a Federal and State level for doing so without the knowledge of the other party. But paradoxically enough, I hope he did and I would like to everyone to hear that conversation (as well as the others I have had with the company) as it will disprove the lies concocted by "*****." Apparently, he and his company have become accustomed to doing business this way. I hope sincerely that the BBB can resolve this in full. Thus I will not have to seek reparations and relief from Suffolk Court, the Attorney's General Office, Federal Trade Commission and any other authority with jurisdiction or interest in this matter.

Desired Settlement: Refund of Expedited Delivery fee; White Glove Service fee; and honor the BuySafe Lowest Price Guarantee and BuySafe Purchase Guarantee and in the amount of (as itemized on all receipts and bills) of $279.00 and an apology for the verbal attacks.

Business Response: The customer placed the order on: 2/16/13
The TV was shipped out on: 2/18/13
The TV  was delivered and received on: 2/23/13
 
The TV was brought inside, unboxed by the delivery agent, plugged into the outlet to ensure that it was working perfectly - which it was -
and the customer signed for the TV. The Bill of Lading that the customer signed clearly says that signing this document indicates that I he
is receiving the TV in perfect condition and that he can no longer place any damage claims. This is the White Glove Delivery service that he
claims he didn't receive.
 
Our shipping policy can be found here:

Additionally, all large TVs that get shipped have a mandatory insurance fee from the delivery company, which
we pass on to the customer, and this is clearly written in our policies as well:
http://www.alltimetvs.com/Shipping_Info.htm
 
We told the customer on the phone that we do NOT provide price protection- the prices change multiple times daily
based on availability and competitve price fluctuations.
 
Additionally, we were told by the delivery agent that the customer was drunk and belligerent at the time of delivery.
We did nothing wrong here, we believe that the customer is simply trying to extort us to strong-arm us
into refunding money for no reason.
 
Thanks,
