Additional Complaint Information

On June 18, 2012, BBB recognized a pattern of complaints from consumers regarding billing and delivery issues. Consumers allege after they give Bench Craft Company permission to take a deposit for an advertisement placement, the company deducts the full amount of the bill from the consumer's credit card. Consumers further allege products and services that have been paid for are not delivered within the promised timeframe, or are not delivered at all.

Bench Craft Company is working with BBB in an effort to eliminate the underlying cause of the pattern of complaints.
