Complaint: Imagine my surprise when I learned from a representative of my 84 year old mothers credit union that after presenting a proposal to my mom the representative from USA bath drove her to the credit union AND sat with her while she filled out the paper work for a loan to purchase a walkin tub from the same representative. How ethical is this conduct? Consequently my mother had a stroke and died on Nov. 4. My brother and I visited the credit union to return the loan check after her death and learned about the USA bath sales rep. Visit to the credit union and the fact that he sat in the cubicle with her while she filled out the loan form. We called USA bath and canceled the installation because with her death there was no way to pay back the loan. USA has retained the $1,000 deposit and is insisting that we pay them additional money on a contract that was secured with a person who is no longer living. How heartless is this on top on their unethical behavior with a senior citizen?
Desired Settlement: Return the deposit the took while driving an 84 year old to a financial institute. The contract is null and void because the person they had the contract with is no longer living.
Consumer Response: Attached are the documents from USA bath as well as all the loan paper work I have. There are two critical points here: 1. My mother died before any work was done on the house. She died on November 4 and the work was scheduled to begin during the week of November 23. 2. The sales rep. from USA bath drove my mother to ****** *** and sat in the cubicle while she secured the loan. That being said she was 84 at the time and was diagnosed with early signs of dementia. My mother would never have ridden in the car of a stranger and allowed him to listen to her personal finances--I also feel it was unethical for him to do this. In addition USA bath has $1,000 fee they have retained and not returned. At first they were asking for another $2800 to close the contract out without doing one bit of work. They have now sent a bill in my name to my mother's address for $1,000 dollars in addition to the money they have kept. They have continued to call my brother and try to negotiate money from him. My mother is dead--there is no money in her estate and since she signed the contract it is null and void. What kind of a business preys on loved ones after a recent death?
We are currently a creditor of Ms. ******' estate, and will be pursuing this matter in court.
Direct response to the elements of this complaint:
#1 The complaint is from a family member of our customer, who is deceased.
#2. The customer requested assistance from our sales manager in securing financing for her project. He kindly drove her to her credit union, at her request, in order to obtain a loan. We believe this was excellent customer service, and highly ethical.
#3. The complaint says that the Ms. ****** had a stroke as a consequence of this interaction with our company. This is impossible.
#4. We are a creditor of Ms. ******' estate, per the contract. This is neither heartless or unethical. I have had 5 separate conversations with Ms. ******** brother (son of Ms. ******). He has invited Ms. ******** to contact me by phone on several occasions to try to work toward an amicable settlement. She has never called me, and I have no phone number for her.
This matter has been referred to our attorney who will be contacting Ms. ******** this week.
We will provide a grace period of 10 days from today for the estate of Ms. ****** to engage in an amicable process seeking resolution, or we will file a case in court to collect the balance owed under the terms of the contract.
I am rejecting this response because: My attorney will be in touch with USA bath.

Complaint: renOn Saturday September 16, 2015 my wife and I entered into a contract with USA Bath, Sacramento for a remodel project on our master bathroom. The total cost of the job was $9,700. We gave the sales rep., Byron *****, a 10% deposit ($970.00) at that time.On Wednesday September 23, 2015 I received a voice mail message from *** ***** stating that the work originally contracted for could not be performed as originally written. The original contract called for no moving of the floor drain (slab foundation)and a minimal thresh hold height going into the shower. *** ***** advised me that he would need to e-mail me an addendum to change the scope of work. The drain would need to be moved and the threshold would need to be somewhere around 6+ inches. This is a material change in the work.I did not receive the e-mail from ***** and on Monday September 28 I contacted *****. He admitted that he never sent the email and again outlined the necessary changes. At this point I informed him that the changes were unacceptable and that we had lost confidence in USA Bath's ability to provide the work correctly. I requested a refund of the deposit to which ***** informed me that I would need to submit a request in an email to the company to this effect. I submitted my request that same day.I received a voice mail reply from the USA Bath manager informing me that he had taken over the matter from ***** and that the company could in fact complete the work with some modification. I responded via e-mail regarding our lack of confidence and again requested a deposit refund.At this point, I received an email from the owner, **** ******* stating that the 3 day cancellation period had expired and there would be no refund. He did not address the fact his rep had attempted to materially change the scope of work, nor provide a written copy of the changes to be made, but did go on to say that he expected further payment under the contract terms for our cancellation.
Desired Settlement: USA Bath will refund the deposit of $970.
*** **** entered into a contract with our company to perform work in his bathroom on 16 Septemer 2015. On review, we determined a preferable installation method for his project. Upon ******* explanation of this recommendation, *** **** informed us that he had "lost confidence" and on 24 September 2015 wished
I am rejecting this response because:
Business Response: As explained before we have retained the 10% deposit, we are entitled to 30% at cancellation and we are willing to go to arbitration if the customer wants to resolve the issue.
