Additional Notes

Complaint: netbook was returned missing keyboard and back of unit. Entrusted them with our device and after quite sometime we went to retrieve it and it was missing the back of the computer and the keyboard. Admittedly they had the computer for well over a year and to be honest after having a child and buying a house we had forgotten about it. I do not believe this justifies losing parts, the duration of the stay that is?

Desired Settlement: I just want to have my computer parts replaced. I do not think that is too much to ask?

Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 5, 2014/08/05) */ Contact Name and Title: *** *******, Owner Contact Phone: XXX-XXX-XXXX Contact Email: *** 1. We originally charged the customer a deposit on the service to disassemble the laptop, remove the hard drive and backup to our server their data, and then copy their data to an external drive they were going to provide. 2. They were going to bring in an external hard drive for us to copy the data to and pay the remainder of the service which was to be at least $40. 3. The customer kept promising to bring in the hard drive but never did and we quit trying to contact them after a few months. 4. We had put the disassembled computer in a box and noticed it on a shelf we were cleaning recently and we were nice enough to contact the customer, even though it had been here for over a year, as the customer admits. 5. The customer came in and we were nice enough to allow them to receive the system without paying for the balance of the service that we had already performed. 6. They indicated that they were interested in the data and didn't want us to re-assemble the computer and picked up the box of parts. 7. Since the computer had been here for so long we cannot be sure we even received the complete computer as they may have started to disassemble it themselves and decided to have us finish it, and since it had been perhaps as long as a year and half, they may have forgotten this. 8. They accepted the box of parts as having received all that was due to them, especially since we didn't charge the remaining balance due. 9. Now, after at least one year, and likely much longer, we feel it is unreasonable to expect us in these circumstances to pay for parts for a computer they admit they forgot about and which they never bothered to contact us about and for which they didn't pay the remaining service due.
