Complaint: Received letter in mail for service which was paid for by check in January with request to pay again for the same service due to written falsehood. The letter, sent by the company, with ***** ********'s signed name, very specifically stated that my check, written in January 2013, along with a batch of other checks from customers had been destroyed by the bank and would I remit another check. I called,on June 5, 2013 as soon as I received this letter. When I talked to ***** ******** and asked for clarification of the "destruction" of the check, by the bank, she that ************** had destroyed the checks in a "batch error", and that she would get a letter from the bank citing that this was their fault. I did not get a call back from her, as promised, and called her again later that afternoon. When I explained that I had to stop payment on the check and pay $15 fee, I also asked again for the letter from the bank (community) which stated it was their fault. I did this, because I did not want to close my entire checking account, in case the check was "floating" around out there somewhere. I was only upon my asking for details, that she reluctantly admitted to me that the bank had nothing to do with it; instead, she claimed that her secretary, or someone, had mistakenly shredded my check and other people's checks. I asked for the shreds back of my check, to ensure that this was really accurate, and also explained to her that she had no credibility and how could I believe either of the two stories. I told her I would not remit another payment, because she lied, not only in the letter (which she blamed on her secretary), but also lied to me again on the telephone call of June 5, 2013. By this time, I was beginning to wonder whether she really represented the company, and I asked to speak to the owner(s) of the company. She, of course, declined. I contacted ************** on Delaware and talked with the branch manager, because I wanted them to know the content of the "fraudulent" wording used in the letter, as well as their specific name being used by Ms. ********. I was absolutely incredulous that a company would "lie" twice, and she is apparently one of the owners. I explained how "unprofessional" their business was in sending this letter out to apparently, a "batch" of customers. She also explained that the error was shown during an "internal audit". I want to know "why" I was not notified of the "shredding of my check" earlier, and why she waited five and one/half months to tell me. In addition,I want to know why she purposefully "lied"--It makes one wonder whether or not this "mistake" was due to someone not wanting to appear as owing as much money for the tax year, and then possibly requesting another check from customers after "tax year" is over and the start of a new one begins. Who would actually believe that anyone would shred a check within the company. This is absolutely ridiculous. I do not want to remit another check to this company, for fear of being in some kind of "colusion" with them in case their reporting of monies is unethical. Besides, who knows what would happen to the second check.
Desired Settlement: I am seeking the "shreds" of my check Ms. ******** explained as to the disappearance of the check. I am also requesting a letter explaining that she lied about the disappearance of the check, and an apology to all the customers associated with this, as well as a letter of apology to **************. Also, I will not even consider sending her another check for payment, until the "shreds" (my check) are returned to me and payment of $15 fee which I made to her in order to stop payment on the check that is apparently could still be floating around somewhere,in case she is lying again.
Business Response: Business' Initial Response /* (1000, 16, 2013/07/11) */ Mrs. ********** was contacted about a check that was destroyed by accident. She was upset, which we understood. She talked to my secretary and then spoke to me. She was very very angry. Even though we made a mistake and misspoke in the letter which should have said a batch that was going to the bank was shredded, the check was still destroyed. The work was performed at Mrs. **********'s home and she paid for services pleased with the work. The fault lies with us for not taking care of her payment, even though we did the work we would like to apologize for our mistakes and we will forgive any financial responsibility Mrs. ********* has for the work. We again apologize for the misunderstanding and destroying her original payment. ***** Frasier ******** General Manager All Star Plumbing Co.
